DJ Rhettmattic hit me up a few minutes ago with his new J Dilla MiniMegaMix. As the third anniversary of Dilla’s passing approaches, February 10th, I can’t stress enough how much of an impact this man made on hip-hop and just music in general. I am going to put a few words up from Rhett himself as he talks about the mix and his great friend, J Dilla.

February is the month that everybody usually connects Valentine’s Day with. But for me & for some other people, we consider February “Dilla Month”, because it is the month that our fallen brother and one of the greatest Hip Hop producers of all time, James D. Yancey aka Jay Dee aka J Dilla, was born & passed away on that same month (Feb. 7, 1974 – Feb. 10, 2006).
In honor & to celebrate the life & music of the honorable “Dill Withers”, i decided to put my bid in for a tribute mix. I know there’s going to be alot of Dilla tribute mixes out there, but i thought it doesn’t hurt to add another one. Plus the Funky President himself, J.Rocc, asked me to do some exclusive mixes for his blog (www.stoneyjackson.blogspot.
com), so why not do a Dilla mix. It is appropriate given the occasion. Personally, i don’t think there’s no out there that can do a better J Dilla mix than my fellow Beat Junkie, J.Rocc…..the closest one next to him I would say is my brother from another mother, “Detroit’s Finest” own, Dj Houseshoes, but yeah, here’s my input.
RIP James D. Yancey aka Jay Dee aka J Dilla (Feb. 7, 1974 – Feb. 10, 2006)
