On Feb 7th, 1974 James Dewitt Yancey, aka J Dilla or Jay Dee, was born; on Feb 10th, 2006, this emblematic hip hop producer sadly passed away… and so we claim this week as “Inspired by Dilla”
In honour of Dilla’s musical legacy, how inspired he was by music and how much of an inspiration he still is to others, Tjunk decided to raise money to support the J Dilla Foundation! In their store you’ll find a series of ‘Inspired by Dilla’ T–shirts including one designed by LDBK's favorite Oli-B. The profit made on these T-shirts will be fully donated to the J Dilla Foundation, to help them fund inner-city music programs - www.jdillafoundation.org
