On the 6th anniversary of Jay Dee's untimely passing, Mister Cee tapped Questlove to spin some of his favorite records as part of his Black Fist Fridays series on Hot97. With an incredible mix of Dilla, The Roots, Ghostface, Mos Def, ATCQ, etc... this is definitely gonna be my soundtrack to the weekend.

Shouts to Miss Info on the heads up and head if you missed Pete Rock's guest session last week, check here.
