According to Madlib’s site RappCats.com, a long lost J Dilla album from 2002 called The Diary will now be available on April 15th.

Initially intended for release in 2002 on MCA Records, The Diary is the final batch of unissued material that Dilla had assembled for release during his lifetime. The Diary features vocal performances by J Dilla, Snoop Dogg, Bilal, Kokane, Frank and Dank, Nottz and Boogie, over production by Dilla, Madlib, Pete Rock, Hi-tek, Nottz, House Shoes, Supa Dave West, Bink! and Karriem Riggins. The album announced during an interview with Nas on Zane Lowe’s show on Beats1 with the never-before-heard song “The Introduction,” produced by DJ House Shoes.

Dilla estate creative director and former Stones Throw general manager Eothen “Egon” Alapatt told  Rolling Stone that The Diary is “the last record that he actually wanted out — i.e., he said, in his own words, this record should come out during his lifetime. The last one.”

The Diary will be released via a partnership between Pay Jay and Mass Appeal Records. Last year Nas released a freestyle over Dilla’s Gobstopper beat called “The Season.”
