Beat*Shot Music head DJ Trumastr & J-Live will be hosting his 3rd Annual Beat*Shot Spins for J Dilla, A Whole Case-A-Dilla on February 4, 2011 at Red Square in Albany. DJ Trumastr conceived of the idea to honor the late, great hip-hop producer J Dilla. James Dewitt Yancey was behind many of hip-hops hits, by artists such as Erykah Badduh, Tribe Called Quest, Common, Busta Rhymes, Slum Village, The Pharcyde and many more. True passes the proceeds on to the J Dilla Foundation, which provides funding for inner-city music programs and scholarships in James’s name. Local musicians, including Glens Falls’s very own Rawstrumentals and Midas from Sub-Bombin Records will be performing Dilla tributes and tunes. Local visual artists will also be selling artwork of inspired by Jay Dee. When True got in touch with us about creating the look for this years event, we couldn’t pass it up and wanted to be a part of one of Albany’s top events. We commissioned an illustration of the producer by Corey John who created a unique perspective of Dilla, while using his unique illustration style. The design will be incorporated into web, print and shirts for the event. Local music and hip-hop fans out there in Albany on February 4, come out to Red Square to pay tribute, and have a great time for a great cause.
