It's been a long time coming but finally I have a cool blog that I can call my own. Most people reading will already know who I am. Discussions of hip hop and life will usually take place here when I have things to talk about.

Dilla Dedications

I thought I would take a few minutes to write my thoughts on the Michael Jordan of production, the Muhammed Ali of beats, the Wayne Gretzky of knob twisting etc. etc. It was a huge blow to myself and countless other when we heard the fateful news that day in Spetember that Jay Dee, otherwise known as Dilla, was no longer on this planet.Words cannot not really descrobe just how influential this producer was, from the beats he did to the countless DJ's, beatmakers, producer's, and emcees that he influenced. The hip hop nation lost a close member of the family, and it is still tough knowing that he was still not at his peak. The first time I heard Dilla was listening to Beats Rhymes and Life by Tribe at the production really blew me away. Over the years I kept hearing dope track after track and when I finally did some investigating I found that most of them were done by the same guy. He inspired me to create dope beats, and is still influencing me now in death. So I thought I would put a mix together of some of his lesser known hype cats up on the influence this cat had and to pay my respects to the master. Dilla "King of Beats"
