Happy Birthday J Dilla
Today (Feb 7, 2013) would have been James Yancey's 39th birthday. Known to most as J Dilla, James was one of the most creative producers to have ever put a beat together. His work with A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Busta Rhymes, The Pharcyde, Common & others; is legendary.
It's been 7 years since Dilla passed away, and his music and life still touch me & many others in the music industry every day. Thank you James for the inspiration and creativity. You changed our lives.
