James Dewitt Yancy
Known professionally as J Dilla
1974 – 2006
Released five years ago on February 7th, 2006, Donuts was a milestone in hip-hop. It's that kind of record where you remember EXACTLY where you are the second "Workinonit" comes crashing through your soundsystem. But Donuts is just the tip of J Dilla's legacy. Man…this cat produced for pretty much EVERYBODY…A Tribe Called Quest, Busta Rhymes, Common, Erykah Badu…you name it. And the influences? Also, the tip of the iceberg. And the people he's influenced? Man, you have no idea. So tonight on Witch Doctor's Brew we tried to make sense of it all…bringing half of Richmond's producers and DJs with us.
Lookin' for WDB podcasts? Don't worry. This one will be podcasted along with back episodes coming shortly after (if we can find them…nighttime is an elusive time).
For those of you who stay up late and rock with us…peace, and thank you.
