It's been 11 years since the world lost J Dilla, but his contributions to hip hop have long stayed with the masses. Detroit's James Dewitt Yancey (or sometimes, Jay Dee) not only produced some of the finest beats around for artists like De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest, but his prolific lyricism as a solo artist and founding member of Slum Village and his all around endearing outlook on life made him one of the most revered hip hop legends of all time. We celebrate him every year with a Dilla Tribute night and 2017 will be no different.
DJ Ronin Roc from Ante Up will be playing some of best in Dilla's extensive studio and posthumous discography, along with local legned Rev Shines of Lifesavas, Supper Set and XRAY.fm and Portland's veteran vinyl master DJ Kez. And as always, free doughnuts from Voodoo and a custom Dilla Dawg photo booth will there for all to enjoy. Come enjoy a $5 get down with Dilla everything at Dig A Pony on Tuesday, February 6.
