There were thousands of Dilla tributes in honor of James Yancey aka J Dilla across the globe this week in celebration of his life and legacy. James Yancey was born February 7, 1974 and passed February 10, 2006.
I'm sure the angels in the heavens also had their hands up every time they heard "Raise it Up" across the globe.
Dilla has made such a huge impact on so many people. I wouldn't be surprised if they made his birthday a national holiday.
We celebrate a man who not only was the most gifted & talented producer of all time, J Dilla was the perfect example of someone who lived out their purpose to the fullest. He was a messenger. As if God lent him to us to bring people together. Dilla was unselfish with his gifts and gave each and every one of us a piece of his heart through his music. His love and passion for his craft inspired so many and literally changed people's lives.
May we all lead a life that brings inspiration and change. Thank you J Dilla. R.I.P.- Tiana
