On February 10th, 2006 we lost James “J Dilla” Yancey, one of the most influential hip-hop producers of all time. Dilla, aka Jay Dee, passed away from complications related to a rare blood disease three days after his 32nd birthday.
Eulogized in song by artists like The Roots, Erykah Badu and Common, Dilla’s musical legacy would earn him new fans and legendary status in the years following his untimely death.
In honor of Jay Dee streetwear heavyweights Stussy are linking up with the J Dilla Estate to release a limited edition t-shirt. The tee comes in six different color ways, featuring Stussy’s iconic World Tribe design along with the titles of Dilla’s classic projects from his discography and his signature donut graphic. Take some time out of your busy schedules this week to reminisce on Dilla’s masterpieces and look out for the drop this Friday, February 8th.
JAY STAY PAID.
