J-dilla just kept on hitting us with new Sh**....some of us were not ready....just when you thought...a new dilla record was going to sound one way...he switched it up ..and came with something new....sometimes it took the average dilla fan awhile to grasp it, some never got it all....but he was able to always come with something new..and original...and still sound like dilla.....one of the greatest of all time.......

RIP Dilla Dawg.

This record is INSTRUMENTAL to any hip hop fan's development as a listener. This record change the path for MANY an artist. As gifted a producer he was, most overlooked his prowess as a lyricist. This record was his coming out. Bottom line: THIS IS A MUST. DIlla is was our Jim Morrison.

May Jay Dee Rest Peacefully ... This is one of the illest albums of beats done by no doubt one of the dopest producers in Hiphop Kulture today ...

Who Is…Lone

By Michelangelo Matos, Contributor

The most alluring dance music of the 21st century sounds a hell of a lot like the early part of the last decade of the 20th. There are many reasons for this, but maybe the biggest is Matt Cutler, the Nottingham-bred producer who calls himself Lone. He emerged in the late '00s as one of a long line of laptop-IDM producers with a J Dilla fixation. But 2008's Lemurian, his first release of note, is… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Jay Dee made a name for himself as one-third of A Tribe Called Quest’s beat-making faction (the Ummah). Thanks to his work on Common’s critically acclaimed Like Water for Chocolate and Q-Tip’s post-Quest endeavor Amplified, Dee has also established himself as a hip-hop super-producer. While Dee’s stock continues to rise (working with Janet Jackson, Erykah Badu, and Macy Gray), his underground projects have been less fruitful. Reason being, when it comes to enlisting new MCs to collaborate with, Dee has yet to locate a lyricist capable of augmenting his sublime production. This fact became apparent during Dee’s short-lived stint as a member of Slum Village, and the trend continues with his first solo outing, Welcome 2 Detroit. Here, Dee continues to showcase a diverse assortment of sensuous melodies and booming funk samples. The Detroit-bred MCs who Dee chooses to highlight — Phat Kat on “Rico Suave Bossa Nova” and Beej on “Beej-N-Dem, Pt. 2″ prove to be very mediocre lyricists. Yet Dee did manage to round up a few hometown prospects, as Frank-n-Dank liven up “Pause” and Elzhi rips a few furious verses on “Come Get It.” Though Dee flips a few clumsy bars as well, Welcome 2 Detroit really takes off when he sticks solely to an instrumental script, retouching trumpeter Donald Byrd’s “Think Twice” and transforming Kraftwerk’s indelible “Trans-Europe Express” into the strippers’ anthem-in-waiting “B.B.E. (Big Booty Express).” [This edition of the album features instrumental mixes exclusively.] – Matt Conaway
