Four Beats Today 19/02/14 snaps of J Dilla’s Donuts

Our four beats today will look at the last album to be produced by J Dilla, Donuts (2006). I was fortunate enough to obtain a copy on vinyl and the long and short of it is that if you come to listen to the album with an expectation, it will shock you. The reason being that is goes tangent to what has normally been the structure of beats in Hip Hop. J Dilla is said to be one of the worlds foremost modern, young jazz innovators, and this album was about to turn Hip Hop on its head, its only unfortunate that it never came to completion but what was created is magical. Ill only present my favourite four beats from the album.
