Dilla month has begun, celebrating his life, death & legacy. We decided to share our tribute to one of our favorite MCs and producers with the world. We have had this artwork up on our wall for a few years and are so excited to have a series of 12 Limited Edition prints signed and numbered by the artist, and our very own Raul “Boogie” Caracoza, Jr. Some of you are familiar with what Boogie has done, and understand how special it is to have a piece of his work in your hands…for those of you that don’t, lets just say he is AMAZING at what he does and an extremely humble & great man.

These Limited Edition J Dilla prints are 12×18. The background and overlay reads “Don’t sell yourself to fall in love with those things you do” repeatedly throughout the whole print. Each signed and numbered print will be going for $40 plus shipping & handling. To order yours, please email us at

mixtape mondays – whatupdoe

Well everyone, it’s getting closer to the time of the year where we get to celebrate the life of James “J Dilla” Yancey…DILLA MONTH! Although throughout the year, his presence is known, felt and most definitely appreciated, there are the 2 days we respectfully acknowledge; his birthday, Feb. 7, 1974 and the day he began resting peacefully, Feb. 10, 2006. We have been overwhelmed with the amount of remixes and mixes DJs have put together of anything and everything Dilla had his hands on, and I can honestly say we NEVER get tired of old ones and look forward to hearing new ones. On that note, here is a 35 minute mix DJ Rhettmatic put together a while back called “WHATUPDOE”. Short and sweet…Thank you Rhettmatic, and Thank you Jay Dee.

Check out what Rhett had to say about this mix after the jump…
