Charles Dickens isn’t the only one celebrating a birthday today. Three cheers for the man himself: James Yancey aka J Dilla aka Jay Dee. Commemorate with a journey through his musical legacy (as MC and producer)
Jay Dee - Wouldn’t It Be Nice (Pet Sounds In the Key of Dee, 2008)*

A Tribe Called Quest ft. Faith Evans - Stressed Out (Beats, Rhymes & Life, 1996)

Q-Tip - Breathe and Stop (Amplified, 1999)
The Pharcyde - Drop (Labcabincalifornia, 1995)
The Roots - Dynamite (Things Fall Apart, 1999)
De La Soul ft. Yummy Bingham - Much More (The Grind Date, 2004)
Jay Dee ft. Dwele - Think Twice (Welcome 2 Detroit, 2001)
Slum Village - Get Dis Money (Fantastic Vol. 2, 2000)
*As pointed out by Nate Harris — a mash-up of Dilla, not done by Dilla.

(Dilla was a Rundgren fan)
