J Dilla's vinyl collection

J Dilla (1974-2006) was a highly-influential music producer from Detroit who collaborated with the likes of A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Janet Jackson, Talib Kweli, and Erykah Badu. In this new half-hour documentary, Fuse looks at Dilla's life and digs into his record collection, currently in a Detroit storage locker.


  1. I haven’t seen anything quite as moving and just plain real as this in a long time. Watching those guys talk about his records and seeing how much they miss him is glorious.

  2. whelp, that’ll hit you right in the gut, eh?

    on the real, Spinna and JRocc big-up-ing you for digging and beats?  I was trying to come up with a bunch of hyperbolic analogies but suffice it to say that’s bananas.

    this whole series is really great, too.  I’d seen the Muggs, Jazzy Jeff, and Cut joints already, so thanks for this.
