I am really proud of this tribute because it showcases the different production styles of Dilla and highlights the emcees that he collaborated with. I made this mix before his latest album “Ruff Draft” was released so that is why some dope tracks like “The $” and “Crushin” are not included in this mix, but you can find out more about that album and J Dilla here, and please remember to support all the artists featured on this mix by purchasing their music.
