J Dilla's 'Donuts' Gets 10th Anniversary Vinyl Reissue w/ Original Artwork
Hard to imagine it’s already been a decade since we were gifted with J Dilla‘s masterpiece, Donuts. It is perhaps even harder to believe that it’s also been a decade since we lost one of the most brilliant and prolific minds hip-hop ever had the honor of calling its own. February 7th will officially mark the big 1-0 for Donuts, as well as the day Jay Dee would have turned 42. And so, in celebration of that colossal legacy, Stones Throw has reissued the album on wax, bringing back the iconic Jeff Jank illustration that originally graced the cover, not to mention new liner notes from Jordan Ferguson (author of the 33 1/3 companion script.) The reissued vinyl is currently on sale over at Stones Throw’s shop for $18.99, which is a helluva bargain, all things considered. Don’t sleep on it, grab your copy today, as this one’s a sure-shot sell-out in the month that we celebrate the legacy of the GOAT. Those of you that happen to be in Miami this weekend, be sure to grab your tickets for Dilla Weekend; a three-day long celebration with panels, performances and a record exchange, raising it up for Dilla in all of the right ways.
