This past friday (February 7) we celebrated what would have been James Dewitt Yancey aka J Dilla’s 40th birthday. Today (February 10) marks the 8 year anniversary of his untimely death .
If you couldn’t be in Detroit for the annual #DIllaDay festivities and was unable to tune into BackSpin Sirius XM, check out Pete Rock’s exclusive tribute Dilla Mix below.
Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
