This one is for Dilla.

Yesterday’s DC Loves Dilla show was nothing short of amazing. Shamefully it was my first one but certainly won’t be my last. Each and every artist that graced that stage brought their “A” game for Dilla, one of the most prolific producers of our generation. If you’re not familiar, please check the resume.

Bilal has much history with Dilla and I was thrilled when he was added to the show at the 11th hour, maybe right around the time that Black Thought decided he had better shit to do.

For this edition of #ThrowBackThursday* on the blog I decided to go with a classic from 1st Born Second, the Dilla produced “Reminisce.” I recorded this one at a show back in 2007.

Last night, D.C.reminisced on the career of a great man. Of 10 years since the release of Ruff Draft (yes, I turned ALL the way up for Crushin). It was a great night for D.C. music lovers.

*Yes, I know #ThrowBackThursday is a photo meme. But I do what I want!
