Yasiin Bey Will Be Performing Tribute to J. DIlla In London

J. Dilla might have been one of the best collaborative producers with any rap artists that has every lived.  Yasiin Bey was one of those collaborations, a continuous bond that apparently didn’t end when JayDee passed away nine years ago.  The rapper/activist will hold tribute to Dilla on June 11, 2015 by performing over nothing but the late producer’s classic tracks.

The celebration of Dilla’s life is a constant effort by rappers and family alike. Check out “History” below, an instrumental released in 2009, 3 years after Dee’s death, with Mos Def’s undeniable lyricism.
