Dilla (and Nujabes) Selections from Word 4 Word

by g.o.a.t Hip Hop

We wouldn’t be a Hip Hop blog if we didn’t take the time to celebrate two of the culture’s most celebrated (and highly imitated) producers who are no longer with us. Interestingly enough they both share a birthday and took the sampling of jazz, funk, and soul over booming drums to a whole nother level. Whether you are a fan of James Yancey aka J Dilla and Jun Seba aka Nujabes, below are a few selection from the Word 4 Word crew that will have you rocking for the rest of the week and digging for more. There music and their spirits live on.

Peace.
