What’s good. I know I’ve been extra late with this one, implant but hopefully this special 50th episode makes up for it.

By now, anaemia you’re all undoubtedly aware of the the genius of the late, global burden of disease great Jay Dee, aka J Dilla. However, on the off-chance that you haven’t yet been exposed to enough of his work, for Episode 50, I bring you the first half (part 1 of 2) of the Shaman Work Recordings homage to the master: “A Brief Education on the Musical Genius of Jay Dee“. This is an exclusive joint arranged by DJ 2-Tone Jones, available for free in various stores and put out with the blessing of Mrs. Maureen Yancey herself.

Please spread the word about this mixtape, and be sure to check back in at www.mixtapeshow.net in a couple of days for part 2, featuring exclusive (as in – not even available on the store CD version) audio commentary from DJ 2-Tone Jones on the purpose and inspiration behind this first installment of the series. Shouts to Lamar, 2-Tone Jones, JR, and the rest of the Shaman Work family for making this thing happen.

Check the tracklist for this half (don’t worry, Pharcyde’s “Runnin” is on the next half, coming soon), and the press release after that.

    And for those of you that dig the show and also happen to get it in iTunes, please consider taking a couple minutes out of your day and reviewing the Mixtape Show Hip-Hop Podcast in iTunes. It’ll help the Mixtape Show stay at the top of the charts, which is always a good thing.

    Also keep in mind who brought you these two joints.

  9. I know I’m crazy late on a comment, Dex (as always..LOL)..but I have to say..this is hands down my favorite episode…I wasn’t terribly familiar with Jay-Dee before this episode..but after hearing this episode I have since aquired just about everything he’s EVER done..and I’m like…”Oh wait..Jay Dee did that track?!”.as an up and coming beatmaker/producer myself I’m seeing I can learn alot from his style….


  10. Greg – don’t be so sure you got everything dude ever made – a lot of it isn’t released! Speaking of which, stay tuned for some exclusives from the master himself..

  11. Whussup! People had to leave a message seeing as this whole show was dedicated to a gifted and blessed being, Dilla dog. With the original MIDAS touch live on through your music brotha. Lovin da show Dex. Bristol in da house baby an’ we out. ONE!!!

  12. dilla was the shit, and it was sad that people didn’t get really fell him like they was supposed to because he was a fuckin genius and the shit he did from J88 to still shining was like a movement. he was so soulful and humble that people didn’t recognize his talent. Whenever i listen to his music it brings a tear to my eye. he had way with catching certain drums and loop patterns it was crazy
