A decade after J Dilla’s untimely passing, Heavy Links member Donnie Propa pays homage to the legendary Detroit producer with this speaker-shaking mix, featuring tracks from Mad Skillz, Common, A Tribe Called Quest and more.
In conjunction with the timeless talent that is Masta Ace, Donnie Propa of UK crew Heavy Links has put together this quality mix of cuts from the Juice Crew legend’s massive discography, largely staying away from obvious choices and instead shining the spotlight on some under-the-radar gems from the Brooklyn lyricist.
