This past week the city (and the world) celebrated a unique individual that impacted the hip hop community in such a short amount of time. His name is J Dilla.
J Dilla is a super producer and artist from Detroit who has used his musical genius to create timeless pieces. He has worked with everyone from Janet Jackson, A Tribe Called Quest, Common, Kanye West, and many, many more.
We celebrated this week what would have been his 34th birthday, as well as the 11th anniversary of his death.
Radio One Detroit is remembering J Dilla.
The celebration continues tonight with Dillatroit happening at Bert’s Warehouse from 8p-2a.
