Reports state that J Dilla's mother, Maureen "Ma Dukes" Yancey, has started a label titled Ruff Draft Records.
The label will release some previously unheard Dilla material and the label's first release is Rebirth of Detroit, which is out on June 12th.
"We want to make it more feasible to interact with these children; we don't know how many J. Dilla's we have out there. Somebody has to find them." Dukes said when asked by AllHipHop.com. Ruff Draft Records is also hosting a launch party on May 25th at the Magic Stick in Detroit, which will feature a listening party of "Rebirth of Detroit" and performances by many Detroit artists.
