LOL!!! at the very end I thought he was gonna say “…and the Jonas Brothers” when he said “Joni Mitchell”…wow…great insight though. I miss Dilla’s music for reals though…

yall dont know bout joni mitchell? jonas brothers is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear that first syllable “jone” in a list of great musicians and bands? i wouldn’t admit to that…

Common is a great speaker. He just communicates very well, which lends to his amazing ability to express himself over tracks

you want his e-harmony account or something? Straighten up bro

@Spank: What was wrong with Sane’s comment? Totally unnecessary for you to tell him to “straighten up” for making an intelligent and thoughtful comment. Grow up bro.

let’s see…I’m a 24 yr. old, white, male whose parents listened to nothing but Christian heavy metal throughout the late 80’s and 90’s…I’m sorry I’m a product of my upbringing…

we gotta cut it out with the negativity though…I stumbled on this site a few months ago and have been loving all the videos and comments but lately it seems like everyone is on edge or something…I actually feel bad for making my smartass comment about my upbringing but I think it’s relevant…

Dilla Days –

problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Wonderful blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
There are so many choices out there that I’m totally
overwhelmed .. Any tips? Thank you!
