In honour of the late, great James Dewitt Yancey, on the 7th anniversary of his death and on what would be his 39th year were he still alive, The BeatDigga presents a mix of some of his most famous and celebrated work.
This is by no means a definitive list or a 'Best Of' - this is just a collection of songs that you can play anytime, any place and at any occasion (mostly). How many producers can you say that about?
Dilla changed the face of hip hop, and changed the way hip hop presents itself and his legacy will live on for many years to come.
Jay Dee/J Dilla/The Ummah/James D. Yancey/Dilla Dawg/Dill Withers/McNasty, whatever you want to call him, there will only ever be one Dilla - February 7, 1974 – February 10, 2006 - R.I.P.
