the whole Donuts style era of chopping was birthed from Kanye's "spaceship".


yes, that is why kanye imitated dilla's style on common's finding forever

because you can definitely imitate something you originated

Dilla was just an auteur of sample chopping. Dude definitely set a lot of precedents in terms of vocal samples and sonic texturing in a hip-hop context. But like, "psychedelic soul" was invented by Funkadelic in the 60s...

All I do is smoke weed, blow lines, and listen to MF DOOM. And rap. http://www.facebook.com/SpacemanNYC

true true. i didnt realize that till after looking up psychedelic soul.

ive been and still am listening to a lot of 60s50s psychedelic rock.
when i went back and started listening to Donuts again, the music just sounded like some psychedelia, mixed with soul and hard hitting drums. so thats what i labeled it until i looked up and did a lil research.

He was definitely the Ian Curtis of hip hop, but I know a lot of people who got into slum village and were really affected by them at a young age, i remember my friend was listening to vol. 2 in his room and he started crying right in front of me

J Dilla is a Top 5 producer of all-time.(<-Period)

You gotta understand he started making beats when it was 10x harder than it is today. Motherfuckers could sit in the crib all day, and watch the best producers mix cuts for hours, and take whatever inspiration they want. Listen to instrumental mixes they downloaded for free, and pluck any fucking sample they want, edit it, and chop it up without really having to do much work.

Ya'll got no respect even if it is a messageboard that is built on trolling, telling other people "why you mad" and stirring up shit. I also understand it's ya'll opinion, but damn he made some of the most original, ridiculous, and meaningful instrumentals in hip hop history. He literallly spoke through samples.

People have bit his style, and tweaked it because of the many inspirations the can combine. If you heard his shit when it was going down back then it was a wtf that shits not even possible kinda deal. Because of the hours of work it took to make that kinda abstract beat making work.

Anyways, lemme see what kinda "demotivational" posters and hate I get. /rant

to be honest, donuts is great, but his production on a whole has superior work IMO to donuts. yeah he made it when he was sick, but lets not hype up quality please. agree, he blew up after his death, &#9829;&#9829;&#9829;&#9829;&#9829;s been around for a minute.

QUANTIZE OFF.
