Dilla on National Donut Day

On National Donut Day it’s only right to give a nod to great J Dilla. He recorded his album Donuts in the summer of 2005, in the hospital while being treated for lupus. It’s one of those albums that gets better with time. Whether it’s how he freaked a sample, or how he wove in personal messages throughout the album, I hear and learn something new with each listen. There is a very cool 7-inch boxset that is worth adding to the collection if it’s not already in there…
