I Miss J Dilla…

Recently I started a play through of all 1500 songs on my MP3 player in order to revisit some old favs and delete some shit I didn’t even know was on it.  One of many artists that stood out in its personal timelessness is J Dilla.  As an ex hip hop fan and having worked in the Mix Tape/DJ retail business for two years, I’ve heard about everything there was to listen to.  I currently have very little hip hop left in my MP3 player due to its lack of actual instruments and redundant themes.  The Big Ls, Tupacs, and Biggies left a void in the genre that can never and will never be filled in my opinion.

Dilla however stands out as a musical super talent even with my own super critical view of hip hop.  Sadly he died prematurely but his body of work is amazing nonetheless.  Even though he’s gone, I smile and turn up the volume whenever he randomly pops on my playlist.  That’s about the best legacy anyone could ask for.

Pimp C Dies in LA Hotel… WTF…

pimpc.jpg 

Lately this blog is turning into a fucking obituary.  That being said I had to give Pimp C a post.  Pimp, real name Chad Butler, was found dead at Mondrian Hotel on Sunset Strip and it is being reported that he passed from natural causes.  33 is way young to die from natural causes so everyone is probably suspecting foul play but hey, Dilla died at 35.  As half of the legendary rap group UGK, Pimp and partner Bun B were pioneers of Southern rap.  If you listen to any southern rap at all and don’t know UGK then shame on you.  I sign off with a Pimp C quote and pray that I don’t have to post any RIPS for at least a few months…
