Excerpt: There it was. Right there on the display shelf with all the other new releases of note: J. Dilla's soon to be legendary Donuts album. I'd like to say I grabbed the album without hesitation. In fact, what I'd really like to say is that I copped the album three days earlier (on its actual release date). The fact of the matter (as I've written several times on this blog) is that my relationship with Dilla (who I originally knew as Jay Dee) was always complicated. I loved Dilla's production on Slum Village's first two albums (hell, I still have my test pressing of Fall in Love that I bought at SV's Fantastic Vol. 2 release party). However, I also associated Dilla as being the producer behind ATCQ's worst two albums and Common's transformation from "hungry" MC to "flower-power" MC.
Shortkut gets busy here with all Dilla cuts.
This was a part of MYX channel's promo CD with the Triple Threat DJs in 2006.

J. Rocc originally aired this mix on his Adventures in Stereo radio show, but was unable to upload the mix to soundcloud (because his account was taken down) or mixcloud (because of their policy about playing too many songs of the same artist). Here you go. Highly Recommended.
