Sprinkled Donuts Vol. 6 | A Tribute Mix Dedicated To J Dilla

In the 6th edition of the Sprinkled Donuts playlist series, DJ Kongisto and illustrator Leigh Le Roux pay homage to one of the greatest hip hop producers of our time, the late James Yancey aka J Dilla aka Jay Dee (1973 – 2006).

J Dilla was an American record producer and rapper who emerged from the mid-1990s underground hip hop scene in Detroit, Michigan. He was the MPC Pioneer geared with mad skills that changed the face of hip hop production as we know it. In 2006 Yancey passed away due to a rare blood disorder called Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura. “If hip hop ever had a maestro, it would undoubtedly be Dilla Dawg. The mix is an ode to every producer’s favourite producer and a showcase of how he changed our musical lives for the better,” says Soweto-born beatmeister DJ Kongisto.
