It’s been 10 years since legendary producer J Dilla passed away. In honor of his legacy, the good folks at DubLab released a very rare Flying Lotus mix, which was recorded the same day J Dilla died.
Like so many other artists, Flying Lotus took the opportunity to pay tribute to the influential producer the best way he knew how – through music. Before starting his mix, Flying Lotus said:
“It’s been a crazy, crazy, day and I lost somebody that was really close to me and close to the whole community here in L.A., hip-hop, and the whole culture. J Dilla passed away and I found out today and it’s really sad man….Let’s get into some jams for Dilla.”
The mix samples J Dilla and Madlib, as well as actual J Dilla-produced songs. To listen, click here.
