This summer will see the release of a very luxurious J Dilla box set. The King of Beats (Ma Dukes Yancey Collector's Edition Box Set) will include four 10'' vinyl records from Dilla's Batches collection, a booklet of interviews with music scholars, and a cassette with five unreleased tracks (listen to 'Filth' below).

The box set is a project of J Dilla's mother Maureen "Ma Dukes" Yancey, and is packaged in the shape of an E-Mu SP-1200 drum machine (which Dilla used frequently). If you actually own one of these fab toys you're in luck, as the set also includes a 3.5 inch floppy disk containing an unreleased beat that you can upload into your E-Mu SP-1200 drum machine.

Pre-orders start on June 24th, and, according to Rolling Stone, the box set ships on August 26th.
