It’s a name you might not recognise – but you’ll certainly know his music… James Dewitt Yancey, Jay Dee or more commonly known as J Dilla, is one of hip hop’s most influential producers and artists, but his genius was cut short at 32 after battling the incurable blood disease, lupus.
As part of the Gone Too Soon series, Benji B presents this 1Xtra story celebrating the incredible music J Dilla created during his lifetime which includes tracks for Janet Jackson, Busta Rhymes, Tribe Called Quest, The Roots, The Pharcyde and De La Soul to name but a few.
Through interviews with Plug 2 from De La Soul, Mos Def, Questlove from The Roots, Common, Erykah Badu, Busta Rhymes, J.Rocc, Slum Village members T3 and Wajeed, his brother Illa J and his incredible mum, Ma Dukes, we learn about how he made those beats, what he was like as a person and the legacy he left behind. Benji also pays his own tribute to the man he knew for almost ten years and is his favourite producer of all time.
Don’t waste any time and listen to this excellent documentary by Benji B right now, because it’s gonna stay online for only 5 more days.
Following up last year’s critically acclaimed release, “Nineteen Ninety Now”, comes an additional bonus set from the MC/Producer duo of Celph Titled & Buckwild. Aptly titled “Nineteen Ninety MORE”, this jam-packed double disc serves as a companion title to the well received “Ninety Now.” Due to popular demand, this release features four unreleased songs from the original sessions, which include guest appearances from Cella Dwellas, Outerspace, Laws (J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League), Kwest (formerly Kwest Tha Madd Lad) and Lord Digga. Also included are the three previously vinyl-only cuts “The Celph Titled Show”, “Nothin’ To Say (feat. Rise)” and “There Will Be Blood [Remix] (feat. DITC and Brand Nubian)”. In addition, all the instrumentals for these songs are gathered here, along with a second disc that contains the entire instrumental version of the original “Ninety Now” LP (including all interlude tracks and four bonus beats). This specially priced 2xCD is the perfect addendum for anyone who owns “Ninety Now” and is an essential piece for any Buckwild/DITC production enthusiast.
“Nineteen Ninety MORE” will be available on 11-8-2011; you can order it now here.
