With this being national DILLA month, the DILLA stories just keep coming.
Here's a short anecdote from T3;
“We had a show once, one of our first big shows, and Dilla waited til the last minute to make our show CD. So we were all at Dilla's house and I had to leave and go to the show and perform by myself for 45 minutes until Baatin [of Slum Village] showed up with the CD, [but there was still] no Dilla. Needless to say, even though he was late, the show CD was one of the best we've ever had and we still had a great show. Plus he made new beats just for the show that I had never even heard before. And that was the mad scientist in Dilla. You never knew what to expect, but you knew when he was done it was gonna be good and well worth the wait. That’s why I love James Yancey!”
