TURN IT UP!
Happy Birthday Jay Dee
We all know who J Dilla is. We all have our favourite beats that he produced (for me, it’s all about the soulful joints – Common’s ‘The Light’ Remix featuring Erykah Badu is my JAM). And the more than eclectic producer, who profoundly changed the face of hip-hop, would have celebrated his 37th birthday yesterday had he not passed away from a rare blood disease on February 10th, 2006.
Here’s an insightful documentary charting his work and life, with contributions from the people who knew him and worked with him – from ?uestlove, to Common, to Q-Tip, to Pete Rock and more. Take a look.
