J Dilla might be gone, but he’ll never be forgotten.

The Hip-Hop community received an exclusive gift from the legendary producer, in collaboration with Queens MC Nas. During Mass Appeal‘s SXSW show “Live at The BBQ,” Nas decided to reveal the new track featuring a verse from Dilla himself. Titled “The Sickness,” the track is produced by another legendary beatmaker, Madlib.

The footage above shows Nas playing the song for the crowd, though the quality isn’t all that great. With a new track under his belt, does this mean the Illmatic rapper is planning on dropping a new project? Stay tuned. In the meantime, listen to the song above and let us know your thoughts.
