RIP J. Dilla (February 7, 1974 – February 10, 2006), )
With the birthday & death of "your favorite producer's favorite producer" this week, it only seems fitting to pay tribute to J. Dilla (aka Jay Dee). The sounds of Dilla were magical and inspiring to not only mild mannered bloggers / DJs like myself but some of his biggest fans were his peers like,?uestlove, Common, Erykah Badu, Pharrell & many more.
In 2006, upon hearing the news of the death of Dilla,psychology humbly put together which has since become one of the most regarded episodes of DITR; The Diamond In The Rough - The J. Dilla Tribute. psychology digs in the archives and posts this special episode of DITR for you to download, enjoy & share.
It will re-air this Thursday, February 7th (Dilla's birthday) on the airwaves of K103 (103.7 FM).
RIP J Dilla.
