vmt: dilla changed our life


J Dilla was a music fan's producer. I think this is why I was such a huge fan of his. After listening to his music, you felt enlightened. You felt more educated about music. You also felt his passion he had for music and for the culture of Hip Hop. This is why I had a love hate relationship with this special edition of the VMT where we look back at the beats of J Dilla. Four years after his tragic death. I loved making this VMT since I got educated on new songs, and new beats. But I hated it because I know that Dilla isn't around anymore. This VMT will take you on a journey of Dilla beats, songs that inspired Dilla tracks and tributes to the late emcee producer. We still miss Dilla. He changed Our Life.
