Remembering J.Dilla + A Tribute Track From Fashawn

On what would have been Hip-Hop legend J.Dilla's 37th birthday it's seem appropriate to pay tribute to the genius beatsmith, responsible for some of the most brilliant beats in Hip-Hop, by bumping some of our favourite Dilla joints:

I really could keep going all night, the man just has so many incredible beats. I remember the very first time i heard Donuts and was just amazed at what that he manged to craft with the samples. To this day the man remains in my top 5 GOAT producer list, for what that's worth.

Now here's Fashawn's tribute to Dilla, rocking over his So Far To Go instrumental:

The track is off Fashawn's upcoming release, Higher Learning 2, dropping February 16th

If you need to get your hands on some more Dilla check out his Brillaint album, Donuts and his collaboration album with Madlib, Champion Sound, under the persona of Jaylib.

For more Fashawn I highly recommend his debut album, Boy Meets World.


  1. He was a legend indeed

  2. Great artist, really loved his work.

  3. We lost too many hip-hop legends last couple years.
