I'm Sure He's Still "Workinonit" Somewhere

Posted by - 12:09 PM on 02/07/14
Today would have been J Dilla's 40th birthday. Rest in peace wherever you are, Jay Dee. Monday will mark eight years since the incredibly influential producer died of a blood disease.

Probably the biggest "what if..." in popular music from the last decade or so. Imagine what the hip-hop landscape would look like today if Dilla was still alive and making beats. Actually that's pretty fucking hard to imagine never mind.

They were born on the same day and same year.

RIP Dilla and Nujabes, my two favorite hip hop producers.
