I actually painted this right after I his death. I actually found out about his death through someone posting the news on @countbassd’s message board. As I read the article, “Don’t Cry” was playing as I just bought the CD that week. His music was the voice of God. #dilladay #thankyoujaydee #dilla #dillaiseternal
Kanye on J Dilla - Upcoming on Stones Throws new documentary “Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton: This Is Stones Throw”
Funny how when Dilla met Pete Rock he told him “I was trying to be you.” Dilla is the greatest to ever do it, this album right here is probably the most meaningful album he did because he basically finished this album while being hospitalized yo.. rest in beats Dilla!
