Official J Dilla  In Honor of James Dewitt Yancey aka J Dilla, Jay Dee, Dilla Dawg. Legendary Producer and Emcee from Detroit. (Tribute Page)

THANK YOU JAY DEE

For Being A Great Inspiration
• For Blessing Our Ears
• For Creating Timeless Music
• For Being Original (1 of 1)
• For Being A Great Influence
• For Breaking Barriers
• For Being A Trailblazer

February 10th marks for over a decade since the untimely passing of a great pioneer, a general and music icon in the name of James Dewitt Yancey, Jay Dee aka J Dilla.

Mainly known throughout the majority of his career as Jay Dee prior to the name change to J Dilla in 2001. Jay Dee crafted several remixes and classic tracks for likes of The Ummah (Production Collective), Pharcyde, A Tribe Called Quest, Busta Rhymes, De La Soul, Janet Jackson, Common, Frank-n-Dank, Phat Kat and several others to name.. He was also one-third of the Detroit Hip Hop trio "Slum Village"

James was only 32 when he passed away due to complications from a rare blood disorder TTP and from Lupus. He spent the final months of his life in a hospital in Los Angeles, while his mom left Detroit to be by his side to assist him every step of the way. His mother, who slept at the hospital, never left his side. She even managed to get music equipment, vinyl records and turntables into his hospital room during this period of time, which enabled Jay to keep pursuing and crafting what he loved to do, which was to create great music.

Loved from all around the globe! Jay Dee will always be remembered as one of Hip Hop's most influentual and highly revered emcees/producers.

MaDukes is now focused on nurturing the next generation of Young musicians and producers through the newly re-launched James Dewitt Yancey foundation.
