Talk about stories of Dilla, post beats, speculation, all that good stuff. RIP to the God.
I'm going to start off with two postings:
1.The first is an interview I did with ?uestlove over the phone back when The Roots' Game Theory album was dropping. I didn't have much interview experience at that point. I had a strict time limit and knew I had to ask about the album but really I was getting that out of the way to ask for a Dilla story.
The story he tells is the making of the Beat for Common's Dooinit. Enjoy.
[Dilla anecdote starts around 7:15]
EDIT: Here's the hyperlink as I keep seeing it show up as "track currently unavailable". http://soundcloud.co...e-interview-cut
2. Second is a rare SV track they did for Jazzy Jeff produced by Dilla. One of if not my favorite all-time Slum Village song. This is my go-to 100% time while pre-gaming before going out for a night on the town. It was very hard to find prior to being released on the BBE 15 years collection.

Here's part 1 of a good video series about Dilla. Would post the others, but there's a limit

What im really looking foward to though, since im 20 and turn 21 later this year so i cant go to any dilla shows, is what documentary they come out with this year. The stussy one was dope and had very good insight on how he worked, and the one they released last year were they show him goin to radioshack and the show was too ill.... what will this year have in store for us??

If I wasn't so lazy, I'd put together the LP Guilty Simpson & Dilla had produced. I think most, if not all, tracks have been released. Can someone post the supposed tracklist? I guess you could just check on all Dilla produced Simpson tracks, but still

Here's the story:
I got this one on a cassette from T3 circa 1997. I’m not sure what it was for, or why Dilla had this on tape, but I thought it was hilarious. “Shut the Fuck Up and listen to this… this.” This kind of style was typical for our crew at this time – we were just finishing up the Fantastic Vol 1 album. It was never about what they said – but instead how they said it. We called it “R.A.W.” – Rugged And wild. And that is exactly what this one is – tape hiss and all.

This is the same way I found out about Danny Brown as well.

In the spirit of Dilla Month let info and such on this thread go under no policing or shut down.
Someone post the "momma" track at the end of THANK YOU JAY DEE 3...please.

As for my point in the first sentence, alot of cats related so much to his beats that one day they just straight said "I'm going to make music that sounds like this, and im going to study Dilla production as a science". Since then, an ENTIRE GENRE of instrumental production has formed, and I'd argue that 97% of cats STILL dont even know the HALF when it comes to the technique that was actually in Jay Dee's head. From the drum techniques, simple stuff like swing, more intricate mixdown stuff like chaining, MPC techniques....all stuff that folks think they know about him. He was nowhere near the top of his game when he passed, so he might have been even more visionary than we give credit for (and we give him the most credit of any beatmaker, so thats all the more notable). So whenever I hear cats making Dilla tributes, biting, showing love, being influenced, whatever, its all love--thats how we continue his musical legacy...but i also smile, nod, and just say "nice, but you truly have no idea". and neither do I!
