Bizarre Ride Live & Slum Village – Welcome To Dillaville Live 5/8 at Yoshi’s, Oakland [Show PREVIEW]

Posted on May 7, 2014 by




You’ve heard the name, you’ve heard the music (whether you were aware or not) and I am assuming you hold him in high regard.  I’m talking about J Dilla! Aka James Yancey, Jay Dee, J Deezy, JD, etc.. ONE of the best producers of all time left us in 2006 but left behind one of the greatest catalogs of music ever created.  From his work with the group he helped start with best friends Baatin, T3 (and eventually Elzhi)  – Slum Village – to his work with The Pharcyde, Madlib, his amazing solo work and of course the countless production placement scattered across hip hop, we have a lot to thank J Deezy for.

Welcome to Fillaville pays the ultimate homage to the late, great Dilla featuring performances from Pharcyde’s Fatlip and SlimKid3 backed by J-Sw!ft and LA Jay plus a performance by the living members of Slum Village – T3 and Illa J! All of the artists worked directly with JD during his short life and will undoubtedly have interesting insight into this man.  This is a show that any fan of hip hop will enjoy and should be at.
