Lost J Dilla record collection found?

by The 405 News Team, 26 April 2012

It seems record store owner Jeff Bubeck, who runs UHF in Royal Oak, is the luckiest man on earth right now. In a find most record lovers, J heads and record store owners can only dream of, it seems Bubeck has stumbled across J Dilla's personal collection of records.

Bubeck found 7'000-8'000 records in an abandoned storage unit in Clinton Township last month, with all the signs (cassette tapes labelled Jaydee Beats, lyrics books and junk mail addressed to James Yancey, and to his parents Beverly and Maureen Yancey) indicating that this was J Dilla's long lost collection.

Bubeck is currently selling the records in his store, with many Dilla fans fighting to get their hands on a piece of history.

    Since Dilla's untimely death, the music world has seen arguably more tributes, posthumous releases, fan art, and homages directed at him than any other rap producer of his era. I say "music world" because it's important to note that, while Dilla rarely stepped outside the realm of hip-hop/R&B in his time on Earth (here's one amazing outlier though), his influence has spread to genres far and wide.
