J Dilla - Jay Dee The MC
Dilla's greatest verses mixed by DJ Matman
Much has been said about J Dilla aka Jay Dee's incredible production skills, and as one of hip hop's G.O.A.T.s in that field his talent as an MC has often been overlooked as a result . The innate sense of rhythm that is so evident in his music also shines brightly in his vocal performances, and while his lyrical content was often limited to a fairly narrow range of topics, his cutting delivery, flow and musical nuance made him a beast on the mic.
This mix focuses on some (but far from all) of my favourite Jay Dee verses both well-known and obscure, cut up and mixed in my usual style and featuring interview snippets from the "J Dilla: Still Shining" documentary.
Make sure you support the Dilla foundation and cop the new LP "The Diary" ft. Nas, Snoop & more!
