Wassup everyone. Dilla month is going strong!!!
Before I get into today’s track, I want to take a minute to recognize Bob Marley today on would have been his 69th birthday. Marley is another individual whose music will continue to impact and influence generations to come.
Today’s track come from Dwele, who was a frequent collaborator of Dilla’s. Some people often get their voices mixed up, as they are similar, but Dilla’s voice (who actually had a nice singing voice) was a tad bit stronger than Dwele’s, who sound is softer and a little raspier. However, you can find Dwele on quite a few tracks lending either vocals, or horns to the selection. Dwele is quite the producer himself, which is why I think he and Dilla worked so well together.
Check out Dwele’s tribute to Dilla off his Sketches Of A Man album. Very creative use of various Dilla beats.
