Still Shining: J Dilla Documentary

 |  February 7, 2011

Brian Atkins of Gifted Films put together this touching tribute to one of the greatest producers in hip hop history. In the film, the late Jay Dee is honored by family, friends and fellow artists such as Common, ?uestlove, Erykah Badu, and Q-Tip just to name a few. Most of the movie is shot around the time of Dilla’s passing, circa 2006. It is no coincidence that the film was released today as today would have been Dilla’s 37th birthday. The full movie can be seen below:

RIP James Yancey AKA J Dilla
