Dilla Day 2012 in Boston was very special. Soulkore Productions’ celebration included live performances, a show of Dilla inspired art and a chance to meet the iconic producer’s mother, Maureen Yancey, now known by the Hip Hop world as Ma Dukes. She sat down with us at high end sneaker shop, Bodega and spoke with us in depth about her son’s early life. We covered everything from the first sign of his love of music, how the family’s musical atmosphere influenced his work, his love of classical music, how she tried to persuade him into a career in science and the R&B legend who almost kept the Ummah from forming.
