from the massive selector site:
" jay dee, your producer's favorite producer... the genius beatmaker behind tribe, de la, common, slum village, erykah, pharcyde, madlib, platinum pied pipers, sa-ra and more... passed away on february 10, 2006 after suffering kidney failure. he was one of the hardest working people in the biz, continuing to create music even after his health began to decline... making beats from his bed... and even performing on stage in a wheelchair... his sound... that bangin yet soulful, off-beat-on style put detroit on the map. his new album, "donuts", just dropped and is an instant classic. fresco & massive selector in association with stones throw will be dedicating this week's MADLIB "DIRECTION IN SOUND" (friday feb 17 at the mezzanine, sf) to the memory of JAMES YANCEY aka JAY DEE... this will be the OFFICIAL JAY DEE TRIBUTE PARTY in SAN FRANCISCO with J-ROCC of the BEATJUNKIES rockin' an exclusive ALL JAY-DEE TRIBUTE SET at 9pm. peace and prayers go out to jay dee, his close family, friends, and fans... j dilla was one of the nicest of our generation and will be truely missed. rest in paradise.
