James ‘J Dilla’ Yancey succumbed to Lupus in 2006 at the age of 32. His short, but prolific and highly-influential career still resounds today. From his work on chart topping singles for Common, The Roots, Erykah Badu, A Tribe Called Quest, Janet Jackson, etc., to his own genre redefining solo releases, J Dilla’s work as a true innovator continues to inspire nearly eight-years after his death.
Today, Slum Village and Yancey Media Group in conjunction with J Dilla’s family has announced that “Yes Yes” is now available on iTunes and all of the proceeds from the track will go directly to Dilla’s children. In a personal statement, Joylette (the mother of Dilla’s youngest daughter Ja’ May Yancey) states “I would like to thank everyone for the love and support and Slum Village and Yancey Media Group for donating the proceeds from this single to Dilla’s daughters.”
