With last week marking what would have been J Dilla’s 40th birthday, legendary DJ J Rocc is continuing to celebrate the legacy of the late great producer with a set of mash-ups/blends. J Rocc has marked these blends as ‘Dil Jackson’ combining the works of two mega-talented musicians in J Dilla and Michael Jackson, each of whom lost their life way too early. This hybrid of musical genius from these two legends is one of a kind as J Rocc takes the vocals of MJ and puts them over some familiar J Dilla instrumentals. The results are successful as one would expect, and while we normally do not promote mash-ups/blends…these are most definitely worth a listen. 

J Rocc is a well-respected hip-hop historian and was a longtime DJ for J Dilla during his live shows. Therefore, it makes sense that he would nail these blends that remind us of just how special J Dilla and Michael Jackson were in the world of music. “Another Part Of Me” in particular stands out as the signature Dilla production fits perfectly with the godly voice of Michael Jackson. These two are a killer combo to say the least…so props to J Rocc for bringing these to the light during #DillaMonth.

Take a listen to the mash-ups/blends below and let us know what you think!
