J Dilla, released Donuts in ’06 and three days later was gone. Hip-hop producer, vibe creator, smooth operator, Dilla, displayed his skills on “Last Donut of the Night”, sampling The Moments and Gene Chandler’s “Rainbow ’65“. This video, part of Stones Throw‘s video contest, works on so many levels. What’s synonymous with the police? Donuts. What’s synonymous with J Dilla? Donuts. The video starts off with a splash. Then, soulful guitar riffs pluck on, the police radio picks up a funky signal and the chase begins. There’s no other way to describe the appropriateness, hilarity, and beauty of this video than, “I give to you,” J Dilla’s “Last Donut of the Night”. [via]
