I think at times his work resembles Omar's, in terms of aesthetic sensibilities and sound selection.

This guy is a genius. Even though RZA will always be my greatest producer of all time, Dilla caused an epiphany for me when i was exposed to his production. It was so revolutionary to me, he was causing progression and evolution in quality hip-hop and completely shot the bar so high up for hip hop beat makers, his beats are timeless. i cant say enough about this genius.

I can't even think of why I would have said this. The stuff that can change in three years...

haha

 

there are probably other j dilla threads but this was the most recent...i just want to make sure everyoen watches that episode of crate diggers

 

 

i think it is pretty inspiring...he was totally a humble dude(which i didn't realize..he likes to talk shit in a lot of his lyrics) and is proof that if you work hard and love music you can do anything with it

Read dis shit mah nigga:

And then to his last stage, which really amazes me, because that was really him at his MacGuyver stage, which was a box of 45s by his bedside, a very cheap turntable and Pro Tools on his computer, flipping beats back and forth. The last stage of this period, that to me was more exciting, because he really wasn’t able to communicate. Which really makes Donuts that much creepier for me to hear because all of those [samples], I’m now certain beyond a shadow of a doubt, were actual messages from him. Not just him randomly choosing stuff. If you analyze everything that’s said onDonuts—from “Workinonit,” (where the sample says I’m still working—’cause that’s the thing, he was confined to a wheelchair, he really couldn’t talk, he was half his weight. To see him would freak you out and frighten you. And then he’d press play and you’re like, “Wait a minute!” And that’s when it hits you, like, “Oh, OK, the brain and the creativity inside him are still the same even though the physicality is different.”

“[Don’t Cry],” definitely [was] for his mother. My favorite one, of course, was “Waves,” which he morphed a 10cc sample from Johnny C “Don’t Do it,” to “John Do It, John Do It,” which, of course, is his little brother, Illa J. The way he found to have messages in all the songs—even the nihilistic nature of him flipping “I Don’t Really Care,” [on “Airworks”] nothing in there was [an] accident, at all. [And] that even displayed his genius more, that he communicated via sample.
