It’s February. In Hip Hop that means it’s Dilla Appreciation month. Arguably the most influential hip hop producer of all time, Dilla died on February 10th, 2006 of a blood disease. Every year his friends, fans and fellow artists celebrate his contribution to hip hop with an onslaught of tribute mixes. To be honest most of them are rehashed and not that noteworthy, but if a big dog in hip hop drops a tribute, it gives you a nice insight into which songs that person picks as Dilla’s most influential work. Case in point this year: Mr. Cee on Hot97.
