Wearing what seems to be his favorite shirt ever, J Rocc links with Bling47 again to break down J Dilla's "Free Your Mind Beat," off of Dilla Beats Vol. 1-5.  The Beat Junkie starts off by taking hits at Casablanca Records - "You know damn well there ain't nothing good on Casablanca, unless you buying Donna Summer, Village People" - though Dilla was "peepin' Casablanca for some stupid reason" when he chopped up Kevin Moore's "Speak Your Mind." Rocc also gets into it, telling the people to stop making up names for Dilla beat tapes. Watch below to see J Rocc get all riled up about hiccups and disco labels while he discusses the dope Kevin Moore flip with the erudition of a sample scientist.
