The "Dilla Road Trip" takes Undrea Woods and myself, James Dewitt Yancey Foundation (JDYF) - MN Chapter Director Reies Romero, on a 3 day weekend of Dilla events and activities. Departing around 1:00pm from the Twin Cities Friday afternoon, we will "chase the storm" and journey to Chicago and then Detroit for J Dilla celebrations!
Friday Febuary 9th
Friday's Chi Loves Dilla event will be held at the Promontory in electric Hyde Park, home of the University of Chicago. We will be visiting and supprting Shervon Coleman who is the official JDYF Chicago Rep. while checking out her Deejay focused Dilla tribute. This event will be hosted by T3 of Slum Village with music by Chicago's own Joe Kollage.
Saturday February 10th
Saturday morning we will be heading further east to Dilla's hometown of Detroit Michigan where we will hit up the Dilla Youth Day and visit Uncle Herm (Dilla's uncle) at Dilla's Delights, then smash on some organic donuts, kick it, and see the city.
Sunday February 11th
Sunday is Dillatroit3, held in downtown Detroit at the Dime Music Institute for Education throughout the evening. Of course we are excited to catch up, and hang out with, Ma Dukes during this historic weekend of J Dilla events. We will also be linking up with our dear friends Diana Boardley and Shawn Wise to kick it with other Detroit Hip Hop originals.
We are very excited to see Jay Electronica and the other heavy hitters such as Obie Trice, Phat Kat, and Gulity Simpson. Be sure, we will take plenty of photos and rep for our Twin Cities J Dilla (JDYF) chapter with full Hip Hop cultural integrity and knowledge.
