Today, February 7, is James Dewitt Yancey’s birthday. In remembrance, one of J Dilla’s close friends and collaborators, Karriem Riggins, sat down at Iron Works Studios in Eagle Rock to touch on his friend’s legacy, and bang out a tune in his honor. Watch “J Dilla The Greatest” from Karriem’s Stones Throw debut, Alone Together. The opening and ending track is “Ooooaaaa,” another Karriem production from Alone Together.
