It’s been 7 years since James Dilla Yancey succumbed to complications from Lupus. However, the depths of his genius, authenticity, work ethic, and humility are still being captured in snippets. This video presented by Fuse TV is one of such. You’ll hear from Ma Dukes Yancey, Illa J, DJ House Shoes, and friends of Dilla; namely J Rocc, Grap Luva, DJ Spinna, Frank Nitt as they give us a peek into Dilla’s collection in one of his storage units in Detroit.
This rare and exclusive peek in to Dilla’s storage locker as well as the accounts of those lucky enough to go record shopping/crate diggin’ with Dilla is inspiring, heart-warming and informative, as the friends, Illa J, House Shoes and Ma Dukes tell us about the beloved, James Yancey.
If you are an aspiring beat maker, producer, musician, DJ, or simply a lover of good music, this video proves to have a take away for you.
