One of the greatest producers in hip-hop, he was unknown to many, but known to those that knew the beat and groove of some of our favorite artists like Com Sense, D'Angelo, The Pharcyde, A Tribe Called Quest, Erykah Badu, The Roots, and countless others. His influence with the breaks and the soulful drums gave hip-hop a different kind of light. His sampling was choice, and he kept the samples as if they came straight from the vinyl to give that classic feel to today's most recognized musical artform (a musical Sankofa, if you will).

His music and legacy lives on through those who knew him and those who were inspired by him.
Rest In Peace, Dilla Dawg.
