Repress of Jay Dee aka J Dilla’s classic album ! The first in BBE’s infamous ‘Beat Generation’ series is being repressed. It was Jay Dee who inspired the above panegyric and set it off in his unmatched style! Detroit’s Don of the beats is widely regarded as one of the most important men in hip–hop! The Roots’ Questlove refers to him as GOAT (Greatest Of All Time). His credentials read like a who’s who of the best in hip hop and R&B who have ever done it: A Tribe Called Quest, Erykah Badu, D’Angelo, Common, Pharcyde, Slum Village, Madlib, and too many more to mention “Welcome 2 Detroit” is a blend of Jay Dee’s unique hip hop and R&B productions, as well as left field twisted instrumentals and jam sessions. “Welcome 2 Detroit” featured many up & coming talents from Detroit at the time including Dwele (Virgin), Elzhi (later became a member of Slum Village), Lacks aka Ta’Raach (Sound In Color / Earth Angel), Karriem Riggins (Common’s producer , drummer and Co-Executive producer of J Dilla’s “The Shining”), Frank N Dank, Phat Kat (other half in J Dilla’s first group First Down), Hodge Podge aka Big Tone (ABB Records) and others!
