This is a short biography I did on legendary hip hop produced J Dilla in 2006 for Radio 1190 AM KVCU Boulder
ATTENTION: Thanks to the helpful eyes and ears of user ronmexico770 I've learned that Dilla in fact was left off of the Janet Jackson production credits, and not by request. Sorry about the error, I had read otherwise but ronmex put me up an interview with Dilla in which he details the situation and it is clear he was simply left off the credit, and that he did not ask to be. My bad.
- aka dilla dawggggg
- Thanks for that. The love we have for what he loved doing lives on after him. I've been bangin the "climax" instrumental for the last few days straight personally.
- Is that mumia abu jamal on the cover of fuck the police at 5:55 ?

- C'mon, this dude left out the Delicious Vinyl era, including 1st Down and 5 Elementz (and played a Pharcyde track from 1995).
