It’s about time!
Not only is Miami being blessed with a whole weekend, J Dilla’s West Coast fans will also get a chance to celebrate the man’s music as the first annual Dilla Day L.A. has been announced as well.
Hosted by Dilla’s longtime friend, Dave New York, the event goes down on February 13th at the Regent Theater – with special performances from eLZhi, Bishop Lamont, Guilty Simpson, J Rocc, Frank Nitt and more.
“This is the first Dilla Day in Los Angeles. There was a lot of drama at Dilla Day Detroit behind the scenes, especially backstage, that a lot of people don’t know about if you weren’t there. Ma Dukes and I were talking and she knew how much love he had in LA from the fans. I was like, ‘Ma Dukes, why don’t we do a Dilla Day in LA?’ Ma Dukes looked at me like, ‘Well, you’re in charge of Dilla Day LA.’” – Dave NY
