Another great collection of beats by Jay Dee, a must have for any fan of Slum Village! This, his first solo project, definately illustrates his passion for real hip-hop grooves, and, like all of Slum Village's work, is a breath of fresh air in todays' smog of rap bravado, pompousness, and over-materialism without substance.

Here we see actual musical substance, as in "African Rhythms," and an amazing guest appearance of Elzhi (sp?), one of the gifted lyricists of Slum Village. This also gives Jay Dee the opportunity to do what I would call the "Pete Rock or Erik Sermon thing," where a producer and DJ also is the main MC heard on the record, and like the aformentioned hip-hop legends, Jay Dee shines.

Jay Dee stuff is out in abundance now, but the reason may not be the one you think. (R.I.P.) Fact is, Dilla was reaching the height of his popularity after a long climb, and Donuts was perhaps his most critically acclaimed work. People have been scrambling to compile the man's back catalogue for months. This is obviously a key piece: his production album for BBE back in 2001 featuring Detroit/SV affiliates like Phat Kat, Frank N Dank, Elzhi and others.

J Dilla - Think Twice

One of my favorite Dilla tunes. It's a smooth Jazzy, Hip-hop instrumental. Yes, J flipped another great joint. I've uploaded some random Dilla pictures, friends and label artists. For example Peanut Butter Wolf, Frank N Dank, Medaphoare aka MED, Madlib, Loot Pack, Charizma, Slum Village, Stones Throw owners and his mother. Also check out de records he was working on. R.I.P to a genius.

J Dilla was a genius, and this cover /remix of a famous Blue Note track was sheer genius.
