Someone You Know Has Lupus

John Yancey, Common, Black Thought, Will.I.Am, etc. are featured in J Dilla’s Won’t Do. I’d embed that shit but I can’t stop it from autoplaying. Video’s awesome though.

And by the way, just like on this one, I will donate a dollar to charity for each comment on this post.

    Does that mean the donation is per poster or post? Because I’ll gladly script a bot to spam your blog for charity 😉

    “won’t do” is easily my favorite song from *the shining*. perfect, audio specimen of the full range of dilla’s talent as a producer, singer, mc, and musician. the way dilla flipped that isley brothers sample is ridiculous – just the way he weaves different parts of that song into his own creation. it’s been sampled to death, and yet he makes you hear it in a different way…he was amazing. his ear was incredible.

    beautful video, but i couldn’t get through it without getting choked up. the lump is still in my throat…

    not sure what this post is about – no accompanying podcast (unless i missed it).

    however, a very good friend of mine died a horrific death from lupus 6 months after her 2 year old son was beaten to death by his father. subsequently, child protection laws went into place in california – dubbed “Lances Law”

    It’s all outlined in the book:

    Yes – someone I do know has lupus.

    Hey Jeff, thanks for the comment. The reason the post is titled “Someone You Know Has Lupus” is because the producer in question, J Dilla, died from lupus less than a year ago. He was one of the most beloved hip hop producers ever known, and the video I was linking to has the words “Someone you know has lupus” scrolling on a blimp to bring attention to the disease.

    I’m really sorry to hear about what happened. That’s terrible.
