In celebration of the musical legacy of James “J. Dilla” Yancey, Fuse takes you to Detroit to celebrate the life of J Dilla and people who have worked closely with him like Talib Kweli, House Shoes, his mom and more speak on his legacy.
Okayplayer’s new site The Revivalist sat down with Tip, Illa and T while at Jay Dee’s tribute show in New York City late last week. While Kamaal speaks on Dilla’s influence over him, Illa J and T3 speak on his music and magic (down bottom).
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.
On October 6th, the homie Grynch is re-releasing the Chemistry EP (as Chemistry 1.5) on iTunes, Amazon, etc. The new edition will include 2 new tracks and 2 remixes (full artwork x tracklist after the jump). One of the remixes is included below; featuring Dilla’s younger brother. A relationship that was built after Grynch was one of the winners of the Illa J contest we held earlier this year.
I laced ya’ll with the Mos Def snippets yesterday, now here’s 30 second clips of the upcoming J Dilla album. I’ve given this three listens so far and it’s safe to say we’re in for a treat. Some of these beats are just nutty (as expected)! Definitely making a purchase next week (June 2nd). Hit the jump for the artwork and tracklist to follow along…
