The Jam- Episode 3: Dilla
It’s been a while! Sorry for the wait on this side of things, but I’ve been pretty active on a lot of fronts.
Wanna be sure to catch you up on many many things, and lot of changes happening. But I especially want you to peep The Jam podcasts I’ve had going with my friends Kim & Chris at BlackIsOnline.
Episode 3 is dedicated to the one and only James Yancey aka J Dilla.
One of the illest musicians, who led the charge of great Hip Hop music from Detroit. Since his passing in 2006, Dilla has also been a bit of a polarizing figure since many people feel he is being praised a bit too much. We discuss our favorite Dilla tracks/beats, the politics of music, and the “what ifs”.
Other topics include: The Soulquarians, how Dilla can help you find a soulmate, the physics of Funk, Napster, and how to appreciate creativity.
