DILLA TRIBUTES IN THE US & CANADA

Backspin on Sirius/XM Radio celebrating the life and music of hip-hop producer J Dilla by playing his legendary beats and classics all day on his birthday, Tuesday February 7th. Plus, hear memories from Busta Rhymes, Pete Rock, Common and more! (All Day)
As you also know, February is when Valentine’s Day & Presidents’ Day is celebrated, but for us personally, we like to call February, “Dilla Month”, in honor of our brother, the late great J-Dilla.  We will be posting things related all this week since it’s Dilla’s Birthday on Feb 7th (Dilla would’ve been 38 years old this Tuesday) & Dilla’s 5th anniversary of his passing on Feb. 10th.  The Beat Junkies have close personal ties to Dilla, especially J.Rocc & myself.  We posted Dilla-related stuff that you may or may not have heard or seen; something to remember & celebrate the life & music of the one and only James Dewitt Yancey aka J-DILLA….We miss you Dilla!!
