J Dilla, Still Shining

February 9th, 2011

James Yancey AKA J Dilla passed away after battling a blood disease called Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura. Still Shining (see below) is a documentary that pays tribute to the mc, beatmaker and producer. Most of the footage was recorded around the time of Dilla’s death.

Dilla died on 10th February, and that happens to be a Thursday this year, which means our online hip hop radio show REPRERSENT Real Hip Hop will be on that night with a tribute to the late J Dilla.
