Watch Karriem Riggins' tribute to J Dilla
First things first. Happy Birthday J Dilla. Today marks what would have been the late producer's 39th birthday and amid some particularly touching tributes is this video from drummer Karriem Riggins. Part eulogy and part performance, here Riggins plays his own instrumental 'J Dilla The Greatest' as a fitting homage. The track appears on his forthcoming Stones Throw release, Alone Together.
