If you haven't noticed by now, I am a huge J Dilla fan. Not only are we both from Conant Gardens area, but the man changed music. Samples were used in a whole new way. He brought the voice back into consideration as an instrument, not just for lyrics. And like myself, he loved to dig thru crates and study music history.
If you are unfamiliar with his work, join me tomorrow for Donuts Are Forever, when ?uestlove will be headlining. Guilty Simpson, an emcee who Dilla collaborated many times with, will be hosting the party. If you like hip hop with soul, this is not a night to miss. Brooklyn definitely shows love when it comes to his music.
