Last night Tony Touch paid respect to two of hip hop's fallen legends. The first two hours were dedicated to J Dilla while the second half was in honor of Big Pun. UPDATE: It's quite sad that there are so few comments on this post. I also added Black Thought's tribute freestyles in a seperate .zip; after the jump Mek provided an interview that the home girl YaYa had with Dilla's brother Illa J; and click here to read XXL's "lost" interview with all four members of Slum Village.

The Big Pun tribute featured cameos from Just Blaze, Sean C & LV, Juju (of The Beatnuts), Green Lantern, N.O.R.E. and more. Shouts to nation on the linkage.

  • B@dr

    I first came across J Dilla in my Junior year of HS in search of instrumentals, goole actually suggested it to me lol Since then i've been a big follower and contributer to all things Dilla. *goes back to "Nothing Like This"*

  • pumbaclut

    Gonna download that questlove set that's for sure.I went to a nightclub in London that was hosting a Dilla tribute, where some very established DJ's played for free and all ticket, merchandise sales all went to the Dilla foundation. His music is an acquired taste it seems but those that love his music will never let him go. I can't say the same to the one hit wonders so in that respect I wouldn't be mad at the lack of comments.

    Events all over Europe were hosted for Dilla and just played his music for the whole night. Not many artists would get that.

    Black Thought is beyond incredible!!! Much love goes out to Dilla and Pun, but thought clearly stole the show here! I just don't think there is any mainstream MC on his level right now. I'm sure we all know some cat around the way that would " Eat him alive" or maybe you are that cat, but mainstream cats.......NO!!! Not none of em. Not Em, Jay, Jay Elec, Mos, Elzhi, Common, Wayne, Royce, The dood is in a class by himself. I really wish Masterpiece Theatre would have dropped way back when. He can play any position, if you've peeped him on Fallon he is like the illest hype man ever! Bottom live he is not the in the top 5 he is just the best on this rhyming ish! Maybe not the most popular or best selling but if I were make up an imaginary cypher and could choose any MC to rock over some dope beats..... it's gonna be Thought all day!!!!!!

    @ Shake's UPDATE comment

    Considering roughly half of the comments posted at the dopehouse are "first" "lupe > _____" or robbie maynard trolling, I wouldn't take the lack of comments to be such a bad thing.
    RIP Dilla & Pun regardless though.

  • zipdo

    Very dope. You can't expect too much from internet heads. If it isn't free music, these folk aren't going to give it much thought. Your website's patrons are prob too young to even understand how important Pun and Dilla were/are.

    That said, props to Toca for holding it down and bless the late, great Pun and Dilla.

  • ziplockp

    incredible. thank you.
