R.I.P. J Dilla


James Yancey (aka Jay Dee, aka J Dilla, one half of Jaylib...), one of the most original, inspiring, super-talented hip hop producers, has died of Lupus.

"Champion Sound" was one of those mind-altering albums that showed how much room there is left to explore in this genre. Flat out one of my favorite albums of all time. The entire music scene just got knocked down a peg. Sigh.

Wayne&wax has lots more info and download links for J Dilla's music.
