Happy Birthday: J-Dilla (James DeWitt Yancey)

James DeWitt "J-Dilla/Jay Dee" Yancey
(February 7, 1974 - February 10, 2006)

As many J-Dilla fans consider the month of February as "The Month of The Man", we take this time to celebrate the day that Maureen "Ma Dukes" Yancey gave birth to the G.O.A.T. I tell many people that J-Dilla is the dopest cat they probably never heard of because I still hear quite a few people say that they either never knew that he produced so many songs they like or they never heard of him at all. Either way, we as true fans salute the greatest to ever touch the pads of the Akai MPC. Rest In Peaceful Power Bro! We miss you.
