This year Valentines Day happens to fall on the same day as our annual tribute to Mr. James Dewitt Yancey aka J Dilla, one of most beloved and prolific hip-hop legends of our time.. so we decided it's best to combine love with love. Ronin Roc (Ante Up) will be joined by couple PDX legends to round out the dedication – Rev Shines (Life Savas, Live & Direct, XRAY) and DJ Kez (Rockbox, 360 Vinyl, Discogs.)
“J Dilla changed my life” is an oft-heard endorsement amongst the hip-hop community As a founding member of the legendary Detroit group Slum Village and member of the Native Tongue movement, J Dilla has produced records for some of the most recognized and celebrated names in the game – Janet Jackson, Common, De La Soul, The Pharcyde, A Tribe Called Quest and countless others.
Since his untimely passing in 2006, his name and work continue to be celebrated through the hip-hop community worldwide and has been a staple artist of several Portland hip-hop monthly parties.
Join us in a celebration of love..and the life of one of Detroit’s greatest sons.
