J – Dilla Tribute – Dj Finesse NYC filling in for Dj Premier on Live From Headqcourterz
On Friday February 7 2014 as Dj Premier was in Detroit performing at Dilla Day, I was filling in for Premier on his Sirius/Xm radio show “Live From Headqcourterz”. Being that it was what would have been J-Dilla’s 40th birthday I did an all Dilla set in my second hour honoring the late great Producer/MC/DJ.
James “Jay-Dee”, “J-Dilla” Yancey died in 2006 at the young age of 32 from cardiac arrest after a long battle with a rare blood disease….
He was one of the music industry’s most influential and respected hip-hop artists.
