R.I.P. Dilla

  • Yesterday would have marked James Dewitt Jancey’s 42nd birthday, had he not died February 10th 2006. Just three days before that tragic day, J Dilla had released his album Donuts, a certified masterpiece of instrumental hip hop.

Around the ten year anniversaries of these events it surely is a time for mourning and reflecting on a lost talent but one also of absolute celebration. Donuts well and truly has earned its status as a classic album. It is brimming with creativity, joy and soul.
