J Dilla's personal record collection for sale at Detroit-area record store

Collectors rejoice! According to The Detroit News, the Royal Oak record store UHF offers

Collectors rejoice! According to The Detroit News, the Royal Oak record store UHF offers between 7,000-8,000 records that they believe belonged to Dilla. UHF’s Jeff Bubeck acquired the collection from an abandoned storage unit in Clinton Township. The collection encompasses “mountains of 94-cent Earth, Wind & Fire LPs,” lyric booklets, junk mail addressed to James Yancey, and cassette tapes labeled “Jaydee Beats.” A first batch of the collection was released on Record Store Day. Some of the proceeds will be shared with the J Dilla Foundation, but his attempts to contact the foundation and Dilla’s mother, Maureen Yancey, have been unsuccessful so far.
