DILLAGENCE: Stream 33+ Hours of JAY DEE / J.DILLA On This 711-Track Career Anthology [Soundcloud]

Happy Birthday to James Yancey, aka Jay Dee, aka J.Dilla. The visionary hip-hop producer would have been 46 years old today, February 7th, 2020. Dilla tragically succumbed to lupus on February 10th, 2006. Mr. Yancey’s genius and legacy live on: in the music, the culture, and the next generations pushing the art form onward and upward. RIP Dilla Dawg!

This exhaustive Jay Dee/J Dilla anthology does not belong to Upful LIFE. The 711-track, 33+-hour collection is a project created by longtime Okayplayer @araQual, who was kind enough to post it on The Lesson a while back. This cat has been blessing us up with incredible online mixtapes as part of Vahe: LeisureCast series for many years. The Soundcloud page is Confessions Of A Curly Mind. LARGE UP to @araQual for this wonderful gift. Here’s what the curator had to say:

 

 

“….9 months in the making, celebrating the life & times of Mr. James Yancey (aka Jay Dee aka J Dilla). even before his untimely passing in 2006, Dilla Dog was already a mythologised, legendary figure within the hip hop pantheon. his work was so distinct, stunningly influential and incredibly vast, that i knew i would be staring down the barrel of my largest show, and project, ever.
as per the many interviews and testimonials you’ll hear scattered throughout the show, Dilla’s overall style and swag when it came to creating music ultimately ended up influencing not only a whole new generation of beat makers, but also how live musicians played their shit. a TRUE artist and the godfather to an entire sound, Dilla was by all accounts a humble and modest individual, but also loved his ice, his trucks & getting faded with his friends n fellow musicians. personally speaking, as is the case for a lot of the fans who grew up listening to his music and didn’t have the privilege of knowing him as just James, his influence on my own musical journey can’t be overstated.
as a result, this show goes for a whopping 33 hours, 30 minutes & 59 seconds. truly a Dilla Day-and-a-bit, & a reverent tribute to both the man AND the musician, as told by not only my nasal ranting, but by audio clips of those closest to him speaking on his life, his skills & his legacy.
due to SoundCloud’s 6hr45min length limitation, the show will be broken up into 6 parts for your convenience. so smoke em if you got em, and remember to TURN IT UP!
