Hip-Hop Rumors: The Videos of Genius J-Dilla!

RIP J-DILLA!

When J.Dilla died, it wasn’t like the punch in the face that occurred when other’s passed away for me. It was like taking slow-acting poison or something and I realized the tremendous loss we all suffered. I was aware of Dilla from the Tribe Days to his current stuff, but he was so low-key and humble that I didn’t realize the breadth of work he put out.

Here are some of the videos that I have amassed for one reason or another. As always, I want your input and I will add them to the post as much as possible. When you talk about Black History, you have to mention Dilla. Also, peep AllHipHop’s appreciation of Dilla’s musical legacy. On to the videos!

“WON’T DO”

“Won’t do” – J-Dilla and his brother John as the MC. (Dilla’s beautiful mother appears in this video along with Common, Will.I.Am (Black Eyed Peas), Black Thought (Roots), Frank N Dank, and Talib Kweli.)

INTERVIEW WITH DILLA

INSIDE THE DILLA STUDIO

TRIBUTE TO DILLA!

Check out this tribute to the backdrop of “Can´t Stop This” by The Roots.

NAS & DILLA?

Check out this remix of Nas’ “Hope” with a Dilla beat! “Hip-Hop Will Never Die!”

DILLA LACED DE LA SOUL

I’ll be damned to the gates of Hell if this song hasn’t withstood the test of time and the stakes are still high as Heaven.

J-DILLA PODCAST

One thing about Dilla is that his discography was so extensive that you can never really get it all in a post like this. This here is an instrumental podcast of the man’s unreleased work.

J-DILLA – “F**K THE POLICE”

SLUM VILLAGE FEATURING J-DILLA – “THE REUNION”

Shout out to Black Milk on the beat.

OH YEA – J-DILLA AND MOP

Shout out to DJ Soul! He’s the definition of Hip-Hop and so are M.O.P. and Dilla!

“Let’s Ride” by Q-Tip, by Dilla

THE PHARCYDE – “DROP”

Thanks Dilla!

“FIND A WAY” – TRIBE

Just call me old school illseed – just like Dilla! This is Hip-Hop, you know the stuff I love.

That’s all I have for now, but feel free to tell me your favs and I’ll gladly add them in the bonus section. Also, don’t forget if you want a real bonus, check out AHH’s Aqua because he runs down some of Dilla’s heatrocks on the audio tip.Oh yeah, click here to see my special favorite crazy ill fresh J-Dilla video. :)

DILLA, WE LOVE YOU!

They keep us talking, but if we stop talking about them then they should worry!
