For eight years now London’s No.1 Hip-Hop party promoters, The Doctor’s Orders, and thousands of dedicated fans have celebrated the life and work of the incredible James “J-Dilla” Yancey and raised money for charity while they are at it.
This year the event will also be travelling West to Bristol and is blessed by two of Dilla’s family joining us in the shape of his mum Maureen “Ma Dukes” Yancey and performing live his brother John ‘Illa J’ Yancey.
The Bristol Hip Hop community has come together to support the event with some of it’s finest DJs from the city’s biggest nights in the genre, such as Don’t Sleep, Donuts, FallingUp, Rhyme & Reason and Sip the Juice.
Combine that with a night dedicated to the incredible music of James Yancey otherwise known as Jay-Dee or J-Dilla for the likes of De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Erykah Badu, The Pharcyde, Janet Jackson, Busta Rhymes, Common, D’Angelo, his own crew Slum Village, Guilty Simpson, Phat Kat, Frank & Dank and of course his own incredible lyrical abilities and you have a night that is not to be missed.
