What If… Dilla Produced The Blueprint?

Post Author:

In 2001 it was clear God was mad at us. Not only did The Blueprint get released on September 11, but providence made it so J Dilla didn't get a single beat on the Jay-Z masterpiece. God was so mad at us that he went on to keep the two geniuses apart until Dilla's untimely death on Februrary 10, 2006. But now God's chilled out a bit, maybe because we elected Obama or something, and he and Jimmy Green have offered us this fun What If mixtape combining Dilla beats and The Blueprint a cappellas. If you're worried this is along the lines of that Jaydiohead bomb, shake it out: don't judge a tape by its wretchedly photoshopped cover- this is some quality.

Jay-Z & J Dilla, “Girls Girls Girls”

Jay-Z & J Dilla, “Hola Hovito”
