Sorry for the pause in posting people, but there really hasn’t been anything that has spiked my interest a great deal in the last week. This video; however, is a much different story. This is the third and final part of Stussy’s documentary on J Dilla; this video pertains to Jay making beats and how he progressed his sound and where Jay got a lot of his sounds from. I love hearing Dave Cooley breaking down what it was like to work with Dilla in the studio; I can’t imagine what it was like to see that man doing his best work. House Shoes mentions another crazy fact: Dilla made most of his tracks in just about fifteen minutes. That shit is nuts. Big ups to Stussy and Stones Throw for collaborating to tell the story of one of the greatest minds music has ever seen.

You will probably see me posting a lot of stuff about J Dilla in the next couple of weeks; I feel way behind the curve considering his birthday was on the 7th. Stussy has released a limited edition shirt in memory of Jay Dee, and they have also put together a three part documentary. This is the first part, and you will see many of the people that were privileged to know Dilla throughout his life. This documentary looks like it’s going to be an awesome testament to Dilla’s legacy, and you all should definitely check it out.
