Today in excellent hip-hop releases

I don't have a lot of time to get into it, but I just have to say that J Dilla's album Jay Stay Paid came out today--if you like hip-hop at all and you don't have a copy in your hand or on your computer right now, you are wasting precious time. No, it's not a Tupac-style posthumous hack job (Dilla's mom and Pete Rock put it together); yes, it's got raps (by Black Thought, Doom, and Lil Fame from M.O.P.); yes, it's every bit as genius as Donuts. And yes, unfortunately that really is the album artwork and not some shitty mock-up by Christian Audigier.
