I was supposed to share this with y’all earlier but I had a though choice to make. The influence of Dilla on all beatmakers and MC’s out there grows stronger every day and it’s no wonder that on the 5th anniversary of the day he passed away …the 10th of February 2011… a lot of mixtapes surfaced on blogs all over the world.
Off all the mixtapes out there this one happens to be my favorite cause it contains Dilla inspired work of several beatmakers with different styles but despite their differences they all do justice to Dilla’s legacy…Enjoy!!
