Push play.Fuck. What can I even say? I remember the first time I ever heard J Dilla. I owe it all to Kyla. Kyla, Ta'Raach and House Shoes took me on as their hip hop apprentice. And for that, I am ever grateful because it's changed my life in the most beautiful way. At first the amount of information they were unloading onto me was overwhelming, and then it became addicting. It was like an unquenchable thirst. I wanted to spend every minute of my day listening to Dilla, researching and finding out new bits of information on him and his work and share it with every person I could...Shit, I still do.
Happy birthday, Dilla dawg.
