RIP Dilla.


Working both from his home studio and while hospitalized from a portable sound system including turntable, samplers, and small boxes of vinyl brought in and out from visitors Dilla continued making music at his usual non-stop pace, circulating beats to MCs, and coming up with the foundation of what would become "Donuts".

Begun simply enough as a production beat tape, "Donuts" evolved into a project as unusual as the environment in which it was created. It's a hip-hop album without MC's. An album of electronic music that at times sounds like a 70s soul mixtape. Its abrupt transitions and numerous interludes might make you think you're rapidly turning the radio dial in some strange city where every station is programmed by a certain Detroit hip-hop producer. "Donuts" is J Dilla doing what he does best crafting hip-hop, soul and electronic music into his own sound.

What's up with the title? Easy explanation. Dilla likes donuts.
