Ljubav prema sedamdesetima, osamdesetima i devedesetima pokazao je na instrumentalnom EP-u koji nosi naziv ˝ Soul Of A Jazz ˝ .

j dilla

Uncle of J Dilla is honoring the producer’s legacy with the “Dilla’s Delights” donut shop in his hometown of Detroit. The shop had its’ grand opening yesterday (May 3) and according to “Fox 2 Detroit” they have sold out the donuts three times in four hours.
J Dilla’s album from 2006 is called ˝Donuts˝ which was released days before he passed away. It’s interesting that donuts are made from 100 percent organic flower by owner Herman Hayes at an off- location facility and are brought to the store as needed.
“This means the world to him,” Dilla’s cousin, Herman Hayes Jr. says, “He was all about the community and family and fun. That’s what food is about, and treats and delights.”

Glenn Telton, the store manager is saying that besides furthering J Dilla’s musical legacy, the store will hopefully help empower future generations, including two daughters J Dilla.

“This is all about bringing something to the community and then help Dilla’s kids,” Telton says. “We’re going to have them come in here and learn the business, something they can learn and take over when it’s time.”

After reaching the top of the charts and since causing an uproar on social media with the repeated changing of his album titles, Kanye’s T.L.O.P. seems to have reached the goals he personally set for the project.

After taking to the Met Gala red carpet with some much talked about blue-contacts, Kanye spoke in hindsight about his T.L.O.P. project in an interview with Steve Harvey today (May 3).

Here’s a dope and heavily slept-on underground Compton material from X-Con, a track titled Felony Melody, off his only album called Life Behind Walls, released on Brutal Records in ’92. The album contains dope production by William Zimmerman, Keg Johnson & X-Con and the executive producer is Alonzo “Lonzo” Williams of The World Class Wreckin’ Cru.

Unique sh*t right here.
