HEADPHONES: “CopyCat (A Dilla Tribute) by VLooper

There’s so many ways to describe J Dilla and still none in the dictionary would give him justice.  VLooper decided to describe the genius in his own way by creating his own Dilla tribute and thus continuing to blossom what Dilla birthed.  Enjoy … and let it marinate…

HEADPHONES: “I’m From PG” by Oddisee

Always showing love to one of my favorite producers who remains understated and under appreciated by the masses (maybe that’s why he stays fresh) I decided to post this track so you all can get your grubby hands on it.  Enjoy!
