Jay Dee - Rest in Peace

The day before yesterday, on Feb 10, Jay Dee (a/k/a J Dilla, born James Yancey), one of the most brilliant HipHop producers unfortunately passed away because of kidney complications, three days after his 32nd birthday. He has created an exclusive style of beat making including ingeniously drawling drums. A couple of days ago he released his new album Donuts on Stones Throw Records. May he rest in peace.

( offers several possibilities of remembrance and 3030 radio has a tribute live stream of Jay Dee tracks)
