Stated on the Ebay profile:
"Proceeds from the sale of these records go to benefit the J Dilla Foundation. Please visit the foundation web site and support Ma Dukes and all the foundations efforts!"
Information about the J Dilla Foundation - http://www.j-dilla.com/foundation/:
"...the newly established J Dilla Foundation has filed for tax-exempt 501©(3) status as a non-profit charitable institution to help fund the development of music in the inner city and provide scholarships to students enrolled at schools with progressive music curricula. Four initiatives will be launched each year and three cities chosen to enhance local music programs, with scholarships awarded to one or more students at the beginning of the fall semester."
SOME ONE NEEDS TO SHUT IT DOWN. This vegetable samosa lover needs to deeply think about what being "distasteful" and "irresponsible" with their words means.
Shut what down, ebay ? me ? you saying I'm being distasteful and irresponsible, can't tell, Ill try this as basic as I can, why through ebay, you have just copied and pasted what I've all ready said "proceeds will go to the foundation" well after ebay has made their profit off of this, which they are, you can not sell for free on there, what does the foundation get. it does not say ALL the proceeds does it. And for your information I have already made donations myself to this foundation directly, I even had an idea which I will write to Ma Dukes about, where the foundation could actually open up residential care homes for kids and young adults worldwide, making it a global foundation, not in just one country, Imagine that "Dilla foundation care homes Globally supporting all sorts of needs as well as the music and art side of things, Oh and by the way if you are saying I'm irresponsible, what do you do, I work with disabled people, special needs kids, the homeless and sexually abused children for the last 10 years, just be careful when you think you have the right to pull someone up on what they're saying, they may be talking figuratively and your taking it literally, one of the great problems with the internet, can't see each others body language, but my God do people like to judge each other. You point out where I'm being distasteful and I'll take it on board if it's valid, makes sense, and is well explained.
