J Dilla honored 6 years after his passing with Dilla Day Detroit

Six years ago today, the late, great J Dilla passed away after losing his battle to Lupus at the age of 32, after he was hospitalized with pneumonia. Dilla produced and remixed tracks for everyone, including A Tribe Called Quest, The Pharcyde, De La Soul, Busta Rhymes, Common, Erykah Badu, D'Angelo, Janet Jackson, The Roots, and his own group, Slum Village. In honor and in celebration of his mark on music, J Dilla will be remembered this Friday (February 10) with a concert at The Fillmore in Detroit. Branded as “Dilla Day Detroit,” the celebration seeks to recognize J Dilla's musical legacy and will feature Busta Rhymes, Jay Electronica, Phife of A Tribe Called Quest, Guilty Simpson, along with Phat Kat, Danny Brown, and the Nick Speed Orchestra. While those are the confirmed performances to date, others are expected to be added to the bill as the the concert approaches. Portions of the proceeds from the concert will go to the J Dilla Foundation and Rebirth of Detroit, a new album of unreleased J Dilla material, scheduled for May through the Yancey Music Group.
