Dilla Studio Wajeed Slum Village

Waajeed’s Interview on the Making of a Classic J Dilla Beat

J Dilla’s close friend and confidant Robert “Waajeed” O’Bryant breaks down the “Look of Love” instrumental, one of the most popular hits from Slum Village. In the short piece, Waajeed lets us in on a nostalgic story that captures the essence around Dilla, which is complemented with a seriously inspiring quick live performance clip of the classic. He explains the first time he ever heard the song, and the emotional impact it had on him, which I’m sure most Dilla fans, including myself, have experienced. Emphasizing the timelessness of the beat and its prolific drum kicks that create a heart beat-like pulse, Waajeed lets Dilla fans reminisce on the beauty of his work and even drops some exclusive sampling knowledge. Give the video a spin and make sure to support Ma Dukes and the city of Detroit by grabbing The Rebirth of Detroit out now.
