Today marks the sixth anniversary of the death of a true hip-hop legend, James “J Dilla/Jay Dee” Yancey. And as some of y’all might be aware, he was very close friends with Questlove, of the Roots. They worked together on numerous projects, many times as part of the Soulquarians collective that also features Erykah Badu, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, and other supreme talents. So to show his love for his late friend, Questo took to Hot97 studios to perform a live DJ set dedicated to Dilla. It’s more than an hour’s worth of Dilla-related material and discussions that you are definitely going to listen to as soon as you’re done reading this post and our feature. Stream it below.
