Salute To J Dilla, Vol. 2

So, here’s the best part about concocting your own podcast-slash-mixshow: you don’t necessarily have to abide by the conventional rules and time frames of releasing episodes!

Yes, the last episode of 2DopeRadio happened over a month ago. However, there were also mixes spotlighting J. Cole’s 2018 run as well as Jay-Z & Rick Ross’ collaborations in between, on top of the normal activities I do to keep a roof over my skull. So, naturally, I got burnt out and needed a brief respite from the turntables.

However, this particular episode has been on my mind for several months, especially since I’ve grown to hold J Dilla in such a high regard in the latest chapter of my life. I wanted to do a tribute for the episode, but I also wanted it to be longer than the typical episodes. Fortunately, with the help of episode 2 guest Donwill, we crafted a two-hour “special” of remixes, mashups, samples, blends, and everything in between. Per usual, we’ve also added regular playlists for the show as well.

We pay homage to the legacy of one James Yancey, and we think you’ll enjoy the end result. Listen below.
