5th Annual Dilla Days features hip hop events at House of Dance and Icehouse on April 7
MINNEAPOLIS — February 7, 2018 — The Twin Cities chapter of the James Dewitt Yancey Foundation will host a pair of events April 7 to celebrate the music of Dilla, aka J Dilla or Jay Dee. Twin Cities Dilla Days returns for a fifth year with two events: a combined hip hop dance and music production battle, and a show featuring legendary producer and DJ Pete Rock, plus several well-known local acts.
Hip hop culture has consistently helped generations of youth use their creativity for something tangible, positive, and productive. We are reaching out to you as someone who believes in the power and vibrancy of Hip Hop Culture to become a sponsor of the 2018 Twin Cities Dilla Days.
Dilla Days honors the legacy of Hip Hop icon James Dewitt Yancey, known as J. Dilla or JayDee, a child musical prodigy who took the field of music production to new heights before his untimely death from lupus at age 32, in 2006.
