On this day, February 7th, in 1974, James Dewitt Yancey, a/k/a J Dilla , was born. To commemorate the day, Jay's friend and musical collaborator, Karriem Riggins presents this interview/music video for "J Dilla the Greatest," a cut off his excellent Alone Together LP from last year. After sharing some thoughts on Dilla's music and legacy (alongside Peanut Butter Wolf and J. Rocc) Karriem does his one-man-band thing, manning drums, sampler and keyboard, in a stirring live rendition of the tune. Good stuff. Video produced by Yourstru.ly .
