THE J DILLA RECORD COLLECTION SALE
J-DILLA.COM JANUARY 22, 2013
Years ago J Dilla moved a large collection of records, personal test presses and audio master tapes into a storage until after his Detroit basement studio flooded. Shortly thereafter he moved to Los Angeles.

The storage unit was left by Dilla and taken care of by his mother, Maureen “Ma Dukes” Yancey, but attention and priorities soon shifted: Dilla became seriously ill and hospitalized, and with his mother at his side in Los Angeles during a planned two-week visited that turned into years, the unit was lost.

In Spring of 2012, the entire collection was finally recovered. The back payments and fees were paid – Ma Dukes was reunited with the contents she last saw just before leaving to L.A. to take care of Dilla.

Maureen Yancey is now selling a portion of the record collection in the first of a series of weekly sales taking place on eBay.

EBAY.COM DILLA RECORD COLLECTION

Buyers receive an LP from the collection of J Dilla, with a signed, numbered certificate from Maureen Yancey stating that the record is from this personal collection.

The certificates are numbered with the plan of an online registry for Dilla fans to list their Dilla Collection LP. Buyers are welcomes to include the artist, title, and whether any tracks on the LP are known to have been sampled by Dilla. This registry is dependent on the sales of the limited amount of the collection and response from the fans.

They do them in batches of 100 I think. This is the Dilla Estate seller's page. They currently don't have anything posted. I say, stay tuned.

I got Joe Pass: Virtuoso LP 1974

Dilla sampled Joe pass for Q-Tip once so I wonder if he used this record for something else...
After a few more google searches I figured out pete Rock sampled this record so I know dilla must have used it to study. Also, there's a Car City Records sticker on my record. GEEKED!!!

They are already flipping these on ebay for over a $100. The highest one I saw went for $280. Something ain't right about that.

And it got me thinking, since the record comes in an open plastic sleeve with nothing on the certificate verifying which record it is, what's to stop people from swapping out that record with say Mountain Live or Eddie Kendricks People....Hold On and being like "this is the record Dilla used to make ****** "

thats the first thing I thought of when I got mine. Maybe Ma Dukes shoulda signed each record.
