    A Generation of Donut Addicts: J Dilla's Legacy

    by Patrick Lyons

    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.

    Essential Playlist: The National

    by W. Richards
