From the bomb ass podcast esham giving j dilla a memorial song circa 2006

James Dewitt Yancey, better known by the stage names J Dilla and Jay Dee, was a legendary producer from Detroit and a part of Slum Village. He started his career in 1991. He died in early 2006 after a long disease at age 32. He even recorded his last album “Donuts” (a dope instrumental-album with nice Funk/Soul-samples) in a hospital and he finished it several days before he died from kidney failure.

Esham played this track in early 2007…one year after J Dilla’s death. Its beat is similar to AMB’s song, “Chips ‘N’ Dip fro mtheir 2006 album, “Blood In, Blood Out”.
