Music Mondays - J Dilla

For those of us blessed to be from Detroit, we already know of Dilla's legend and his impact on the hip-hop game. Along with being one of the most acclaimed producers in the game, Dilla is responsible for a movement that is still taking place within the city. Artists on the rise like Guilty Simpson and Black Milk credit Dilla for having a major stake in their success. J Dilla's catalogue is one that is completely unparalleled in the industry. It's hard to find another artist outside of other legends such as Biggie and Pac that completely embodied their hometown in their music as Dilla and the aforementioned have. There are not enough words in any language to express the impact Dilla's work has had on not only the local music scene but also in the overall scope of hip-hop. His passing in 2006 has become yet another tragic moment of someone with a world of ability to offer being taken too soon. Dilla's legacy is one that will continue to live on and inspire artists for years to come.
