Mos Def To Perform J Dilla Catalogue
For one night only Yasiin Bey, commonly known as Mos Def will perform the back catalogue of J Dilla, one of the most influential Hip Hop artists to come out of Detroit. Soundcrash will host the one-off event on the 11th of June at The O2's Indigo in tribute of the late Jay Dee.
J Dilla is still considered a legend and a huge influence on the scene, before Dilla passed away in 2006 he had risen significantly since the 90s, and collaborated with A Tribe Called Quest, Busta Rhymes, Madlib, D’Angelo, MF DOOM, The Pharcyde and Mos Def. As a collaborator with the man himself, it's only natural that Mos Def pay homage to the life's work of Dilla.
‘We gotta make music and think, "If Dilla was alive, would he like this?" I have to work on behalf of Dilla.’ – Kanye West
Tickets will be available from the 1st of May at 10am via the Soundcrash website.
