No secret in the world of hip hop that the best artists are in its past, sadly, most have actually passed away. Jay Dilla aka Jay Dee seems to have firmly secured the spot as the most prolific producer in hip hop, ever. Dilla joints have been sampled, remixed, and covered by a myriad of respectable and not so respectable acts. It is with great pleasure that I share with you a valiant exploration into the musical genius of Jay Dilla, this time, by the legendary hip hop band, The Roots. Questlove has been covering Dilla tracks for a minute, especially in live sets. This compilation is newly recorded material, of some Dilla material, which is clearly fire. Time to appreciate the past, in the present.
