J Dilla - "Donuts"

$ 20.98

J Dilla's magnum opus, Donuts is a watershed album in hip-hop. Universlly acclaimed by critics (Rhapsody's #3 best hip-hop album of the 2000's, 10/10 from Pitchfork Media, need we say more?) Having been diagnosed with lupus and TTP, Dilla created 29 of the 31 songs on this album while in his hospital bed. His mother Maureen Yancy recalls:

"I didn't know about the actual album Donuts until I came to Los Angeles to stay indefinitely. I got a glimpse of the music during one of the hospital stays, around his 31st birthday, when [friend and producer] House Shoes came out from Detroit to visit him. I would sneak in and listen to the work in progress while he was in dialysis. He got furious when he found out I was listening to his music! He didn't want me to listen to anything until it was a finished product.

He was working in the hospital. He tried to go over each beat and make sure that it was something different and make sure that there was nothing that he wanted to change. "Lightworks", oh yes, that was something! That's one of the special ones. It was so different. It blended classical music (way out there classical), commercial and underground at the same time.


If you're a fan of hip-hop, you owe it to yourself to pick up Donuts today.
