The Roots x J Dilla   Dilla Jawns Mixtape

Philadelphia’s finest crew, The Roots, dropped a mixtape to honor the instrumental work of J Dilla. The late producer is famous for crafting beats for the likes of the Pharcyde, A Tribe Called Quest, and even a Grammy-winning track for Janet Jackson. ?uestlove and company give the beats new life thorough their own interpretations of the work. On tracks like Upper Egypt, the live instrumentation adds a completely different dimension, and the results are rich. Fans of both hip-hop juggernauts will appreciate this respectful, expansive tribute to Dilla. Hit the download link after the jump. via NahRight

I'm listening now......I haven't been a Roots fan since the day they dropped Phrenology, but this CD is nice. Takes me back to the days when they could just do whatever they wanted and it came out dope.
