      EVENT DETAILS
      7th Annual J Dilla Tribute & Fundraiser

      The J Dilla Tribute aka DC Love Dilla Concert honors the late, great
      Hip-Hop and music-maker, James Dewitt Yancey. Haven't been to a show?...Shame on you, especially if you're a Hip-Hop head. Let's explain. Each year, members of Dilla's musical family, alongside a incredible assortment of talent weave their lyrical offerings within Dilla's music - performed by 12 piece band, J Laine & The Players. We're talkin' samplers & horn section too folks.

      Prior guests include The Pharcyde, Dwele, Phife Dawg [A Tribe Called
      Quest], Talib Kweli, Pete Rock

      In 2006 J Dilla passed from complications with Lupus. Portion of proceeds
      benefit The J Dilla & Lupus Foundations. Thanks for your support.

      WHO IS J DILLA?
      Think Common, Erykah Badu, The Roots, Busta Rhymes, A Tribe Called Quest and many more - More than likely some of your favorite songs were produced by J Dilla.
