J Dilla’s “certificate of authenticity”
While some may consider this as a form of blasphemy and prefer to have Dilla’s collections placed in a museum (which I understand and agree with to an extent), some may also think of this as a perfect, personal way to honor an influential man’s legacy (which I also understand and agree with to an extent). With the help of Maureen “Ma Dukes” Yancey, fans can now purchase the very vinyls J Dilla crafted many a banger from…
1) A signed and numbered certificate from Maureen Yancey (Ma Dukes) stating the LP record you will receive is from J Dilla’s personal collection.
2) An LP originally bought by Dilla (on one of his many crate diggin’ expeditions) still in the loose bag Dilla put all his records in. None of the records have been cleaned or checked for defects. You will receive it just as it was in Dilla’s collection, possible writing on covers, old price tags, fingerprints and all.
