#DillaLegacy: Jansport J - "Save My Soul" Album

Though it is a few years old now, Jansport J and his instrumental album from 2011 called "Save My Soul" still gets plenty of rotation here at The Double Truth. A nice nod to Dilla "Donuts" era chopped samples and no MC's approach to album making, "Save My Soul" digs into the soul sample catalog and manages to breath new life into some popular samples and some lesser known. I half expect to hear the Dilla siren going off in some of these, but it stands up as a solid part of the lineage of Dilla's beat tapes and specifically "Donuts" era so keep an eye on Jansport J and his crew for more true school sounds in the future.
