J Dilla’s Gear Headed to the Smithsonian

J Dilla is a fucking legend, and the Smithsonian in Washington, DC agrees with us. The museum is putting Dilla’s MPC 3000 and custom-made Moog Synthesizer (by Robert Moog himself) up for display.

The gear will be a part of the Smithsonian’s upcoming Museum of African American History and Culture exhibition, opening late early 2016. The announcement came via Maureen Yancey, aka Ma Dukes, which can be seen in the player above.
