I'm not certain nor do I remember when the essence of Jay Dee build upon me but I recall hearing Busta Rhyme's "Can't Hold the Torch" and finding out of some guy name J-Dilla produced it. I digged deep in to the Internets layers and was virtually introduced to the genius. That was when I truly fell in love with music. Not hip-hop but music overall.
Jay Dee showed me how to love music. How to not be gender racist with music. I would stay late nights and listen to the genius then would desperately find the sample and be amazed with the pure chops. Jay Dee made gold into...something much greater, more complex, more soulful. Then later I rushed to the the store and bought his whole catalog. Donuts still fucks with my head when I hear it.
To this day I sit and wonder if he was still alive...it's more than music to me. It's a passion, a way of life, it's pure love. Rest in Beats.
P.S.- I love my (ex)girl for giving me the Donuts Vinyl on our anniversary. I say, the dopest gift I've ever received.

Damn what happened to the powerful galactic force of the mighty Dipset? I miss them I really do. I use to rep the Dips to the extreme, even walking around shouting out "Dipset bitch!". Those were the days I wanted to be in the Dips. Now once in a blue moon I throw on the slamming classics and miss the quality of the music.
I use to even go as far as fighting for the Byrd Gang, smell me? I would use their slang to the extreme! Repping that Lenox, screaming out: free Zeeky, get at me, Purple City, capo status! I was a fool for the love of the Diplomats. Now they have vanish as a movement musically but I still own their joints and I still bump them once in a while.
Dipset bitch, byrd gang! Smell me?...

The reason I'm excited is because of these dudes:
and also the Roots. I just got my tickets to their show. The two most consistent live hip-hop bands ever. This is gonna be a hell of a day. But also this Tuesday run for comfort! The Quilt is dropping. I've been feening for this CD, I recommend it. Fuck downloading support! Support! Fuck itunes too, buy the hard copie it's only reasonable to support real artist who live their music.
As I run for comfort this Tuesday to grab my Quilt...
