Cause Petitions Are Totally Effective

So there was this great musician (producer/rapper) who went by the name of J. Dilla (as well as Jay Dee). He was on a shortlist of music makers who never went out of rotation once you heard them. You got hooked and you just stayed that way. This year he passed away after a fight with a number of illnesses that forced him to make his final album, Donuts, from his hospital bed. The pure devotion that that act exhibits is pretty amazing; the fact that the album is one of the best albums I’ve ever heard is heart-breaking. The reason I’m relating all this to you is that he has an unreleased album from his days at MCA that a number of people are trying to get released. I’d like to count you as one of those people. If you don’t know his work, here’s a few examples:

Slum Village – Fall in Love

Common – The Light

The Roots – Dynamite!

Jaylib – Nowadayz

A Tribe Called Quest – Get a Hold

    Ah! A Tribe Called Quest! I love them! They are what got me into hip-hop you know.

    I must say though Dave that online petitions actually aren’t effective at all…not to rain on your parade but it’s pretty much fact.

    I know I’m such a downer…

    Oh My God! I can’t believe you were on the YouTube homepage! I had been requesting an OE video to be in their ‘featured’ section, but never very formally. I wonder if I had anything to do with it! Congrats, and I hope you get a bunch of new fans!

    R.I.P. Jay Dilla. Awesome, prolific and underappreciated.

    He’s probably influenced so many producers that don’t even realize.

    Speakin of hip-hop memories, I was just thinkin about that time we were listenin to BlackStar in your car when it first came out. Here’s to drivin around, listening to tracks, schemin’ and kickin it.
