Jay Dee in the place to be

Even though its not really our function to write much about national music news since you can usually find better coverage elsewhere, we just wanted to link to this Pitchfork rundown of some of the more noteworthy tracks that J Dilla produced over the years. He was one of our favorite hip hop beat makers of all time, and his 2003 album with Madlib was one that we listened to pretty regularly for months after its release. Although he didn't get a lot of recognition in his day, you can expect a flood of postmortem commentary about how great he was in the next few weeks (sort of like the one you're reading right now). Its just a shame that people were too busy with goddamn Puff Diddy to show him much love while he was actually, you know, alive and everything.
