Elder & Rosen put on a live music birthday celebration featuring the Charleston, S.C. sextet, “Dillamental.” Tab One of Kooley High and DJ Gonzo lent MC and DJ support while the band kept rhythm for the Detroit soul of J Dilla.
Phife’s tribute to Jay, “Dear Dilla,” dropped late last month. Download on iTunes and Amazon. Stream from SoundCloud. Dig the site. Link below.
Our friend Funkleberry made a “Happy Birthday Dilla” beat yesterday as a present to our favorite hip hop innovator.
