Tonight: One Won’t Do – A Tribute to J-Dilla

Thats right, in Williamsburg tonight there is a tribute to the late and great J-Dilla. This is going to be an amazing show. If you dont know (you should) J-Dilla is a legendary producer that passed away before his time. Its sad... Anyhow, he produced so much stuff that is now ingrained into Hip-hop history. Dilla produced tracks for A Tribe Called Quest, Busta Rhymes, The Pharsyde and many more. He was a member of Slum Village for their critically acclaimed first album "Fantastic, Vol 2". This show is going to be amazing, the cover is only $10 and there are over 10 people/groups performing. Directions, line-up, and more photos/trailer after the jump...
