Today, dear friends, is the ever celebrated, ever revered National Donut Day. And as an ode to all you purveyors of circular baked goods, it seems like the perfect time to bring back some high-fructose machine-gun funk for y’all to rock with from J Dilla. Perhaps you recall Biggie‘s born day celebrations when we unearthed and liberated a blazing (or should I say glazing) remix of The Notorious One’s “Kick In The Door” fit to the tune of one of Jay Dee’s more booming, swing-loaded specimens. Well, if not, today we’re reprising that decadent deelight for your listening pleasure, which originally appeared on DJ Soul‘s universally adored Assorted Donuts tributary tape. Consider it a gift from us to you, who yearn for the Dilla-fide treats wherever, however you get them. So grab yourself one of those delicious donut holes, put your feet up and bless the air to this certified heater from the gawd, every bit as sweet as the day itself. Scroll down to stream J Dilla’s remix of Biggie’s icono-cut “Kick In The Door” and celebrate National Donut Day proper, itis and all.
