Maureen “Ma Dukes” Yancey, mother of highly revered producer James “J Dilla” Yancey is profuse in keeping his memory alive. She was the guest at Hot 97 where she discussed her son’s legacy with Peter Rosenberg and announced the forthcoming children’s book, a biography of J Dilla’s life entitled The “Life Story of James Dewitt Yancey”.

“I want to tell you how very happy I am about the first series of my children’s book titled The Life Story of JDilla,” Ma Dukes said in a statement. “It’s been an amazing quest for the Foundation as we gear up to support the education of youth by inspiring them to pick up an instrument and enhance their creativity and learn to appreciate the arts. This book can be enjoyed by the very young, as an audio is also available. It’s an example of striving to be all you can be and working hard to achieve ones goals in life.”
