Happy Birthday: J-Dilla "Still Shining (Documentary)"

For those of you that don't know, but today Febuary 7th, is the birthday of the late great hip hop genius James Dewitt Yancey also known as J-Dilla and one half of the group Jaylib. He would have been 37 today and even though he's gone his music still plays a great role in music today and his samples are often reused by many artists. I, myself was first introduced to J-Dilla through Jaylib and their song 'The Red' which I got off of the "Tony Hawk's Project 8" soundtrack, and later went out and bought their album, "Champion Sound" which is full of dope tracks, and you can tell Madlib and J-Dilla had fun on the collaboration through their little skits, and advertisements at the end of some songs. I hope those of you who know who J-Dilla is will continue to support his music, and for those of you that are unaware of J-Dilla and his musical talents will go out and take a listen to some of the stuff he's put together. For everyone, here's the documentary that was released today in honor of his birthday. It was created around the time of Dilla's funeral in 2006, and was finished some time after in the same year. I hope you all enjoy "Still Shining."
