J Dilla’s “Lost Scrolls”

J Dilla Stussy Documentary

It’s been seven years since the legendary beatsmith James “J. Dilla” Yancey passed away. He well recognized for his production work with artists like Slum Village, A Tribe Called Quest, Erykah Badu, and many more. His spirit still lives in the hip hop community through his unreleased music.

A few years ago, a record store owner, named Jeff Bubeck, bought a collection of records in an old storage unit. He found a box of tapes with the name “J. Yancey,” and discovered it was J. Dilla’s vinyl collection. The storage unit contained a collection of samples Dilla used to make many of his hits, as well as tracks that Dilla was planning to release in the future. After receiving many offers to sell it, Bubeck decided to hold on to the collection. Jeff Bubeck soon found out that Dilla’s family was having financial, and put the collection back into the right hands. Listen to interview below and hear Jeff’s full side of the story. RIP Dilla!
