Video: J Dilla Tribute (R.I.P Dilla)

It's been two years since hip-hop producer J Dilla aka Jay Dee (real name James Yancey) passed away from complications of the disease lupus on February 10th, 2006.

The musical legacy that he left behind will never be paralleled. This is a video tribute that gives you a brief snapshot of who J Dilla was as a producer, person and legend. If you don't know who he is, you'd better ask somebody!

FYI. The song playing in the background is "Can't Stop This" which is a track off The Roots' most recent album Game Theory using a beat from Dilla's instrumental album Donuts.
