  2. dilla internet

    been in a heavy dilla mode since his birthday feb. 7
    so inspired by jay dee. here are some of my favorite dilla mixtapes on the internet.
    pete rock, an original grand master so you gotta respect his dilla knowledge. he focuses on Ummah-era / ATCQ, which I think is an often overlooked part of the dilla discography

    j rocc’s four mixtapes, released in the years following jay dee’s death. covering the entire catalogue. some special focus on the 2005 batch beat CD’s. definitive documents all.

    Dilla on Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide on BBC in 2001, after the release of Welcome to Detroit. 

    megamix by BBC Radio 1’s Benji B, aired shortly after dilla’s death / Donuts. packed with bangers.

    DJ house shoes, dilla’s close friend, giving up all of dilla’s samples in two volumes. tastefully done though.
    some recently recovered unreleased tapes and stuff.

    There’s so much more…

    • "This is the legend of Cassius Clay,

    The most beautiful fighter in the world today. He talks a great deal, and brags indeed-y, of a muscular punch that’s incredibly speed-y. The fistic world was dull and weary, But with a champ like Liston, things had to be dreary. Then someone with color and someone with dash, Brought fight fans are runnin’ with Cash. This brash young boxer is something to see And the heavyweight championship is his des-tin-y. This kid fights great; he’s got speed and endurance, But if you sign to fight him, increase your insurance. This kid’s got a left; this kid’s got a right, If he hit you once, you’re asleep for the night. And as you lie on the floor while the ref counts ten, You’ll pray that you won’t have to fight me again. For I am the man this poem’s about, The next champ of the world, there isn’t a doubt. This I predict and I know the score, I’ll be champ of the world in ’64. When I say three, they’ll go in the third,

    2 years ago So don’t bet against me, I’m a man of my word. He is the greatest! Yes! I am the man this poem’s about, I’ll be champ of the world, there isn’t a doubt. Here I predict Mr. Liston’s dismemberment, I’ll hit him so hard; he’ll wonder where October and November went. When I say two, there’s never a third, Standin against me is completely absurd. When Cassius says a mouse can outrun a horse, Don’t ask how; put your money where your mouse is! I AM THE GREATEST!” (1964)
