Producer: J Dilla
Album: Ruff Draft
Label: Mummy Records/Stones Throw Records
First appearing on Dilla's most experimental album, Ruff Draft, “Nothing Like This” likely caught listeners off guard. He wasn't rapping, but it wasn't just an instrumental either. It was more of a melodic chant, with Dilla Dog repeating a chorus over and over again. The aptly titled song sounded more like an 80s rock/electronic hybrid than an actual rap record, with an incredibly obscure guitar riff reversed and recurring throughout. Whatever it was, it didn't sound like it was from this planet.
