This is the second single from J Dilla's infamous "long lost" vocal album, The Diary, released by the Estate of James Yancey's imprint Pay Jay Productions.
Long before The Shining, J Dilla titled these two tracks “The Shining Pt. 1″ and “The Shining Pt. 2.” “Diamonds (The Shining Pt. 1)” was produced Nottz, and “Ice (The Shining Pt. 2)” was produced by Madlib. The Diamonds & Ice EP contains two markedly different versions of “Ice,” with one showing the musical direction Dilla would embark on after The Diary was shelved in 2002. Rounding out this EP is a Madlib instrumental that J Dilla secured for the album but never turned into the final song, titled “The D.”
