J Dilla On Detroit Police & Musical Recognition

February 10, 2010


J Dilla offers up an interview during a trip to Toronto.  In addition to discussing personal concerns about the Detroit Police Department, the late producer briefly comments on the increased sense of recognition received when traveling outside of his home city.

It’s weird cuz like in Detroit, ya know I’m just a regular Joe.  Ya know what I’m sayin’.  but you go to New York, or you go to Cali, or go to London. Even coming to Toronto now, you know what I’m saying now, it’s a whole different thing.  I get the love for what I do in that basement, it’s like appreciated.  So I go back and do more sh**.
