“Dilla’s Delights” Doughnut Shop to Open in Detroit

(AllHipHopNews) J. Dilla’s uncle, Herman Hayes, known to fans as “Uncle Herm” is opening a new doughnut shop in Detroit this fall. The new shop, Dilla’s Delights, will serve the legendary producer’s favorite snack, along with coffee and tea. Uncle Herm is a former baker and brother of Maureen “Ma Dukes” Yancey, Dilla’s mom, and the founder of Yancey Boys Music Group and The J. Dilla Foundation.

Dilla’s Delights is located on the ground floor of the Ashley, formerly known as the Milner Hotel, where Dilla lived briefly as a child. The 800-square foot space will serve doughnuts that use all organic ingredients. Dilla’s Delights will also feature vinyl spinning of songs produced by Dilla, and the artists he sampled.

The shop will feature 20-plus varieties of doughnuts whose names pay tribute to the Dilla’s legacy, including, the Conant Gardens Glaze, the Fantastic Fritter, and McNasty Macaroons.

Donuts was the title of J. Dilla’s final album produced and recorded from the producer/rapper’s deathbed. “I want to honor my nephew in the right way, and this is a good way to do it,” Hayes says. “Not by putting out another album, but putting a sustainable business with his name on it that I plan on being in Detroit long after I’m gone. It’s just what I can give back to him for giving us that music.”

Dilla’s Delights is scheduled to open in October or November.
