Arguably one of the most underrated producers, James Dewitt Yancey, known to the music world as J Dilla, has left a legacy behind him that is hard to compare. As one of the most influential hip-hop artists, he contributed everlasting beat work for prominent acts like A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Busta Rhymes and Common. Unfortunately, the Detroit native suffered from thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, a rare blood disease, and possibly lupus. J Dilla died on Feb. 10, 2006, three days after his 32nd birthday and the release of his final album Donuts. Today would have marked his 37th birthday.
