Detroit and its neighboring Canadian city Windsor are connected through a tunnel and various bridges, Detroit was founded on July 24, by the French explorer and adventurer Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac and a party of settlers. During the 19th century, it became an important industrial hub at the center of the Great Lakes region, with expansion of the American automobile industry in the early 20th century, the Detroit area emerged as a significant metropolitan region within the United States.
The city became the fourth-largest in the country for a period, in the s and s, suburban expansion continued with construction of a regional freeway system.

Madlib — Otis Jackson Jr. He was raised in Oxnard, where he began his music career, in the early s, Madlib formed a loose-knit collective composed of rappers that worked with Madlib in his Oxnard-based Crate Diggas Palace studio.

J Dilla — Yancey died in of the blood disease thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura. James Yancey was the eldest of four including a sister, Martha.
The family lived at a house near McDougall and Nevada. He developed a vast musical knowledge from his parents—his mother is an opera singer. According to his mother, he could match pitch perfect harmony by two-months old, to the amazement of musician friends and he began collecting vinyl at the age of two and would be allowed to spin records in the park, an activity he enjoyed tremendously as a child. Along with a range of musical genres, Yancey developed a passion for hip hop music.
He also took up beatmaking using a tape deck as the center of his studio. During these teenage years he stayed in the basement alone with his collection of records. He later told Pete Rock when they met years later that I was trying to be you, inhe met experienced Detroit musician Amp Fiddler, who was impressed by what Jay Dee was able to accomplish with such limited tools.
Upon its release inthe quickly became popular with fans of Detroit hip hop, as well as gaining the attention of Q-Tip. I think he embodied what a lot of Midwestern hip-hop brothers are about. He grew up on the east side of Detroit, so he would be talking about his chain and his truck and getting some ass.
He would be on that, but then he would go and sample Ahmad Jamal, or create something from some obscure rock record.

His hip-hop embodied the soul and the funk and the spirit of what the Midwest is about. He might be gone now because he did his job on earth. He had a good childhood. The spot he was at, Conant Gardens, was a little rough. As we grew up, cats got older and started listening to NWA. Cats would be doing their thing, but he was never in that circle. He knew those cats, but he was never in that circle.
He was always in the basement. I met him at this spot called St. We grew together, got real close musically, and started working together.
We would make beats together, listen to music together…that was one of my closest friends.
What Up Testo Frank N Dank
The Roosevelt was the spot in New York where producers used to meet up, the ones who knew about it. It was like a fucking cattle rush in there. All we did was drive the price of records sky high, everybody digging for shit and looking for the same drums. There were a lot of people in there. Nobody would ever see Mark, and that nigga was up in there, eight in the morning.
It was just a cool little movement. He introduced me to the whole Dilla genius. He had something about him that was just real special. He had been staying with Tip for a minute, and I remember him being on the phone a lot because I think he missed Detroit. I heard about fourteen beats on a cassette—a beat tape he sent to Q-Tip—and I lost my mind.
I could not believe that a man had figured out a way to make the machine do shit like that. I was just trying to be the motherfucker that had first dibs. I was trying to develop the Ummah as something of a network. That was the MO. I was trying to follow.
In my world, Fantastic Vol. Common heard it, and had a whole new vigor about his career—that took him out of the Relativity period into the Common we know today. It brought Mos alive, it brought Kweli alive—it was just breathing new life into people. How one demo and one unknown group could spark a fire like this was unheard of. The shit was crazy—the choruses were perfect, the production absolutely unheard of.
I learned so much. When he would ask for things, no matter how weird they might have seemed to me, just trying to find what he was looking for was definitely a huge learning experience. Sonically, it sounded like he was coming out of that Beats, Rhymes and Life sound and moving forward towards what we have now, what his last couple of years of work were.
That album was like the end of one generation of Dilla beats, moving on to the next. The way he was combining the live drumming with the keys and the samples, nobody was doing anything like that at the time. You could tell we were all children of Tribe, but what Jay Dee did so well was bring that aesthetic, but also bring some street to it, so that real cats on the street could appreciate it. I went to Detroit to hang out with Jay Dee—or Dilla as he had just become known as—to talk about ideas for the album.
To my pleasant surprise, he had various BBE comps on his wall. I also noticed he had a lopsided collection to what I expected—way more jazz, Brazilian, funk, and soul albums than hip-hop records. We drove around Detroit and I suggested the title Welcome 2 Detroit to him and he loved it. Jay really loved the fact that the Beat Generation series would allow him to do things no one had ever suggested.
It was different, for the first time in your life, having someone give you the opportunity to basically say who you are as a producer.
Because a lot of us are under the hypnotism of the industry, I had no idea what to do. His Beat Generation album set the tone for everybody that did it. Jay was really hands-on as far as his beats, especially when it came to mixing—he was definitely right up there at the board, right along with you.
He would work different ways, though. Sometimes he would do the track from beginning to end as far as the music. Sometimes he would build a foundation, then bring players in and see what they would bring to it. He just brought in people he was confident in and let them bring what they heard to the project. It was the same thing when he was working with artists. He would really let them do what they were feeling.
Even [with] me as an engineer, he definitely let me do what I was hearing. He would actually make you stop the tape and back up. The primary reason why I even started the idea of a Soulquarians was so I could get first-hand Jay Dee beats. He definitely made it easy for MCs. Dilla would give you a beat for about thirty seconds on a beat tape. You usually have to put the chorus where you want the chorus and the verse space where you want the verse space.
That shit was damn near a finished production by the time you got it on a beat CD. He was extremely thorough. De La and the Pharcyde—I remember hearing that stuff and being blown away. I never felt that he was trying hard—he just innovated. Virgin was mad at us because instead of working on the album like we were supposed to do, we spent two months straight not even recording anything—like, literally putting the record on, learning the chords, then going into the studio and redoing it.
We were so stuck on that record. For the longest time, we would just sit there and listen—me, D, and [engineer] Russell [Elevado]. I would like to think that whole Electric Circus phase was a Hail Mary throw and the ball is still up in the air. I feel somewhat vindicated now because the Sa-Ra cats and Platinum Pied Pipers are embracing the Kraftwerk side of things. Common wanted to go to the next level and be really experimental, and we were going there—doing different things, trying different things, trying different sounds.
That was an amazing time. It was just really creative—extra creative. We tried to go as far as possible with it. If anybody was the reluctant student of that experiment, it was me. He was such a diverse artist. He knew so much about music, having studied music, and he came up in a musical environment, so he knew how to adapt, which is why his shit is just so lethal.
If you notice after he did that wave of albums, he kind of went back to his regular hip-hop and put out the Ruff Draft EP and started doing his thing with Stones Throw. I got a spot out here. It was a time in his life where he knew he was sick and he wanted to get to a more peaceful place in his heart, a more peaceful environment.
I think he was going through different trials and hard times, and I felt like his salvation was out here, like this was his home. He was ordering it for a record store he worked at out there. The first record I ever put out, the Jay Dee Unreleased, it kind of tripped me out, because I would get more frustrated, it seemed, than he would. He had all these remixes that he had submitted to all these different record labels and they all fronted.
I always stayed in touch with House Shoes. Through that, House Shoes was showing him the Lootpack and Quasimoto and all that. Eventually, I started talking to Dilla when Slum Village came out here and did a show. I remember that was when he and Madlib first met. We all felt like it was a historical moment. I was backstage at an Alkaholiks concert ten years ago—I took those cats around digging and shit, and Madlib was DJing for them. He moved out here [to L.
Out here, it was like, bam! I could wake up to that. How many people can say that? Jay was always looking out for folks. Madlib would buy the whole store. Dilla would buy, like, two records.

Even though Dilla was out here [in L. That shit never happened in Detroit unless we were at St. Dilla never let that shit bother him, though. I think it bothered everyone else more than it bothered him. All he wanted to do was make music. The love there is like you were born and raised there. I let other people pay attention to what I do. I pay attention to what somebody like Jay does.
You know how running water sounds? It would have a different swagger when Jay would hear it. Jay Dee was the cat that, if you were a freshman on the first day of school, the creative equivalent would be him rocking a polka dot T-shirt with some plaid plants and multicolored sneakers, but walking with a confident stride.
He did everything with such confidence. Everyone else would be rocking a track suit or some color-coordinated shit, but his feng shui was just totally out of whack. Artists, you know, are a different breed altogether. Some like Jay might be a little alien. He had a fixation on little alien figures at one time or another, and I half-expected him to be from another era or another place in time.Frank-N-Dank Ma Dukes ( Madlib Remix )
He was a little ahead of his time. Back in that Beats, Rhymes and Life era, no one was making music like that. Jay was a different kind of nigga. The nigga had this little alien doll sitting on the speaker. Get the fuck out of here. During one period of recovery in ICU, for two days, he sort of rambled and talked to himself. His eyes were wide open and he was looking at the corner of the wall and talking—not whispering, but talking out loud.
The nurses were asking me if he had ever done this before. They did all kinds of scans to make sure nothing else was going on.
