I'm digging what Egon, J. Rocc, JJ and, yes even House Shoes are doing with the Pay Jay stuff they've been putting out. And I'm definitely looking forward to finally hearing the MCA project since I'm one of three people who didn't go out and dl it.

Regarding ST, I remember an interview with Wolf a few years back where he basically said he didn't really want to put out anything else by Dilla bc he didn't want it to seem like they were trying to abuse his legacy or something along those lines.

^ dat link to dat interview.


a few quotes:


"It comes down to Ma Dukes, though. She makes all of the decisions, so it would have to come from her. She was with him in his final days and was sleeping on a cot in his room. She took care of him so much. If I was ever presented with doing something that would upset her, I just wouldn’t do it."


"That’s a weird thing for me. I don’t want to criticize people for doing it, but sometimes it can get a little corny. With all of the tribute stuff, I kind of avoid it for the most part. I’m actually doing his birthday party tribute on Tuesday (February 7), which is a video tribute—which is something I’ve never done. I haven’t ever done a video tribute for him, so I was up for that. But I don’t ever aggressively seek out doing Dilla gigs, because sometimes it just gets self-serving."


"And that’s why we kind of fell back after DonutsDonuts was such a huge success and we could’ve put out The Pizza Man right after it, and capitalized on it monetarily, but I felt kind of strange about it. It was just wrong in my eyes. I’ve always battled with that."


so instead, we will never get the pizza man.

I see a lot of negative talk about posthumous Dilla releases. What did you guys think of Dillagence? I myself find myself listening to that release quite a bit. It's easily one of my favorite posthumous releases.
