J Dilla & Motown Unplugged


Lovely D-centric mix:
Last year while i was listening to some Motown stuff, i started hearing J Dilla rhymes in my head over the tunes that were playing. Being that Dilla was not only one of the greatest producers ever, but in my opinion one of the greatest MCs as well, i wondered what it would have sounded like to have him rhyming backed by the original Motown band and artists.
As i was putting together this tribute to the Detroit music I love, everything fell into place with the song titles and rhythms making perfect sense...

So here is my version of of J Dilla "Unplugged" backed by the OG Motown band.
