Here in NYC, J Dilla month really kicked off in a major way this past Friday at the 5th edition of Donuts Are Forever at Santos Party House. Everyone got a chance to spend the night dancing and celebrating the life of J Dilla. Today, on the date of James ‘J Dilla’ Yancey’s birth, we get a closer look at his life, influence, and music by those who knew him best, with J Dilla: Still Shinning. The trailer sparked some conversation topics that are still being discussed, now lets take some time out to see the full project from Brian ‘B. Kyle’ Atkins. BKyle describes this as more of a remembrance piece than a documentary, the vid starts on the day of Dilla’s funeral service (2/10/06) and gives us exclusive interviews with his close friends and family, unseen photos, and rare concert footage. Powerful stuff right here. Gone but never forgotten, Dilla shines on (Rest In Power).
