To further celebrate the life (Feb. 7, 1974) and death (Feb. 10, 2006), we dedicate this edition of SS to James Dewitt Yancey aka J Dilla.
First, we have this dope video for “The Last Donut of the Night”. It was created by Tuomas Vauhkonen and Jeremias Nieminen, the winner’s of the Stonesthrow video contest.
The sample comes from The Moments “To You With Love”. This is such a soulful track.
On The Roots’ Game Theory album, Dilla’s “The Donut of the Heart” was used for Can’t Stop This. Black Thought rips this track.
If you haven’t guessed the sample yet, its from The Jackson 5’s “All I Do Is Think of You”. Video below is a live perf on Soul Train. R.I.P. Michael Jackson and Don Cornelius.
Last, its his first single as a solo artist. 1, 2, 3! F**k the Police!
Sample comes from Rene Costy & His Orchestra “Scrabble”. Man, this is another sick instrumental.
