Today marks the day J Dilla passed away. Merely days after his 34th birthday and release of his infamous album Donuts. It’s only fitting that I share with you my favorite Dilla track. There are so many to chose from, but this one always speaks to me. Maybe it’s Dilla singing “Never felt nothing like this.” I don’t know what it is. All I know is next to the interlude after “Raise It Up”, this song makes me feel an indescribable way. It stops me in my tracks. It brings me to tears. This lyrics ring true to the song.
Rest In Peace J Dilla. You will forever live on through the genius of your music.
