J Dilla – Still Shining Documentary

"J.Dilla: Still Shining" from B.Kyle on Vimeo.

Earlier I posted the trailer for this. I was hyped to see what this documentary would reveal, and it definitely was worth the viewing. There's tons of exclusive footage in here, including Dilla making beats in the basement, performing with Slum Village, behind the scenes of the famous SoulAquarians photoshoot, features from Common, Erykah Badu, Bilal, Dwele, House Shoes, Pete Rock and more. It's been 5 years since Dilla passed and I'm glad to see his legacy is still being kept alive and strong. So throw on Donuts and Turn It UP! for one of the greatest to ever do it musically. R.I.P.
