Happy Birthday J Dilla: Must-Hear J Dilla Track No. 4
Had he not passed away on Feb. 10, 2006, beloved hip-hop producerJ Dilla
would have turned 38 years young Tuesday. Although his official cause of death is cardiac arrest, Dilla suffered from a rare blood disorder called thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura.
In honor of J Dilla's birthday, his premature passing and his awesomeness, we are going to post one must-hear track every day until Friday.
Happy birthday, J Dilla, and rest in peace! The final track of our four-day intro to J Dilla is "Take Notice." The song rules thanks to an infectious keyboard hook, a funky electro bassline and a beat so tight you could bounce a quarter off it.
Today marks the sixth anniversary of Dilla's death, and following the advice of the title of this track, we take notice of his work.
I couldn't find a link, but I did find this:
I also highly, highly suggest looking for the instrumental version of "The $."
