How do you properly toast a legend? The impact of J Dilla’s far-too-short career reaches deep and wide with everyone from Questlove to Kanye to Pharrell openly acknowledging the influence of his genius on their own creative journeys. With 29 of the 31 songs on ​Donuts being completed while Dilla was in the hospital, the album isn’t just a critical piece of hip hop history, it’s the swan song of a man who had beats bottled in his soul like lightning. Passing just 3 days after the release of the album, we listen with great respect & offer a toast to one of our generation’s best, a modern royal of his craft…to Dilla.
