Attention all Donut lovers: it’s that time of the year again, fam. When the world takes a moment or a night or — in this case — a weekend to hold up a flame to the GOAT AKA James Dewitt Yancey AKA Jay Dee AKA the one and only J Dilla. Whatever you call him, his status and –most importantly– his contribution to music at large is inarguable. But we’re not the only one’s with that in mind.What do you think?
This year, instead of devoting a single day to the man’s legacy, Ma Dukes & Co. have picked up shop and relocated the festivities to the all-too-sunny isles of Miami, hoping the warmer vibes will bring all of the heads out to play in this weekend-long retreat from February 5th through the 8th. The weekend will host performances and meet-greets with some of the most legendary collaborators and admirers of Jay Dee’s career that ever were, including (but certainly not limited to) Madlib, Pete Rock, Talib Kweli, Slum Village, Joey Bada$$, Black Milk, Camp Lo and so many more. So come one, come all. Grab your friends and family and hit the road if you’ve got to ’cause this year’s celebration of Dilla’s life will be one for the books.
