Video: Guilty Simpson, Phat Kat + T3 Live at Dilla Day Detroit
Though (as we reported) advertised headliners Busta Rhymes and Jay Electronica were not able to perform for reasons that are still unclear, Friday’s tribute to J Dilla at Dilla Day Detroit went off in a big way in spite of no-shows and 3 inches of snow. T3, Phat Kat, Guilty Simpson and of course Dilla’s little brother Illa J all carried the torch high with live performances and as OKP contributer Fredara Mareva reported via the twitters: “It was a beautiful hometown vibe. Detroit really showed up for Dilla…[and] showed it wasn’t about headliners tonight.” Enjoy the tributes from Guilty Simpson (above), Phat Kat (below) and T3 and Illa J repping Slum Village (after the jump) and see more live performances courtesy of the videographers at HoodHype.
