The Diary is the sixth studio album by American hip hop recording artist J Dilla. It was originally intended for release in 2002 via MCA Records under the title Pay Jay. This long-lost album is the final batch of unissued material that J Dilla had assembled for release during his lifetime. It also represents his first rap album released since Ruff Draft (2003) and Champion Sound (2003).

The Diary (J Dilla album). Pay Jay, as it was known, is a vocal album James Dewitt "J Dilla" Yancey completed over eight months in the early 2000s, following the release of his first solo album, Welcome 2 Detroit, in 2001. Yancey was signed to a solo deal with MCA Records in 2002. The album was his attempt to take advantage of the attention he gathered after his brightest period as a behind-the-scenes hitmaker and influencer.

Now called The Diary, the lost album will finally see light of day on April 15, released under the artist name J Dilla. No major labels, no bootlegs, no bullshit: just the singular vision of one of hip-hop’s greatest pioneers given shape by a handful who knew Yancey well and knew what the album meant to him. In many ways, the story of The Diary resembles the story of Yancey’s life: it wasn’t easy, but it was hopeful. The Diary is the most comprehensive document of Yancey’s duality as a rapper and producer. While he is best remembered for the latter, to dismiss him for the former was always a grave mistake. Yancey knew he was a bad motherfucker says Houseshoes, a fact apparent in the majority of the rhymes he left behind.

The Estate of James Yancey has revived J Dilla’s longstanding company PayJay as a functioning imprint to release Dilla’s long lost vocal album, The Diary on April 15th, in conjunction with Mass Appeal Records. Initially intended for release in 2002, The Diary is the final batch of unissued material that Dilla had assembled for release during his lifetime, lending crucial insight into the producer’s prowess and thought process in the period leading up to his break with the major label system and the extremely fertile period that followed (which encompassed the making of the canonical classics.

Dilla's most noted collaborators had been progressive, socially conscious writers who waxed about the big ideas about their immediate society in grand terms. In many senses, it's hard to understand who this record is directed towards.

  • Briciraz
Nas's "The Sickness" isn't on the vinyl release. What a disappointment....
  • Naktilar
most of this tracks were on this release, but with different titles and masterings no? :https://www.discogs.com/J-Dilla-Pay-Jay/release/1611394
  • Vozuru
Exactly. That is an advance CDr released in 2003, what is kinda strange considering that the album was shelved by MCA in 2002 (but MCA disappeared in 2003). It might be a bootleg. The good thing about that CDr is that it has all of Dilla's mixes, the Kanye track, the OG version of 'Remember' (named 'The Ex' in The Diary) and other slightly variations.Hope it helps.
  • Landarn
My copy came with the 45 outside the sleeve, covered in surface scratches. The main LP had some as well. Anyone else this unfortunate?
  • HappyLove
my brothers RSD copy was missing the 7" inch had to return to get another copy with 7"
  • Skyway
Mine was all inside, however the LP was very badly warped, I have returned it and second copy is on its way.
  • CONVERSE
mine was inside the sleeve, next to the downloadcode, booklet and 12 inch.
  • Talvinl
The Sickness only on Japan CD release? . . .
  • Vrion
I believe the track listing is incorrect. My 7" also has a B-Side of "The Ex (R&B Version).
  • lifestyle
The bonus 7" I got has a b-side of an "R&B version" of The Ex, not an instrumental. Were there variations as to what the bonus 7" was, or is the current tracklisting here incorrect?
  • Dainris
Yep, mine is The Ex (Album version) // The Ex (R&B version)
  • Malann
It's good to see this being sold at a reasonable price, especially since it's a highly sought after release. Got mine at my local record store but, still good to see that though.
  • Galubel
What happened to that "Radio" song??? That should have been on here forreal!
  • Katishi
The track called RADIO is exclusive material and NO, it wasn't intended to be release on The Diary.
  • Mavegelv
mostfaded What happened to that "Radio" song??? That should have been on here forreal! Could you please tell me what that "Radio" song is exactly?
