A Look Inside J. Dilla’s Vinyl Collection
One of the greatest to ever do it, Fuse delves into the vinyl collection of legendary DJ and producer, J. Dilla in the latest installment of its Crate Diggers video series. Given the great extent and scope of the late artist's work, it makes sense that Dilla would also have an equally as impressive archive of vinyl. In the episode, J. Rocc, DJ Spinna, and rappers Frank Nitt and Grap Luva explore the rich archive of J. Dilla's collection that effectively sheds light into the amalgam of genres that defined his career. Commentary is also provided by Dilla's mother, Maureen "Ma Dukes" Yancey as well as his brother Illa J. The nearly 30-minute episode steps into the heart of Detroit to explore the birthplace and heart of one of the greatest music producers to date.
