Dilla changed music. But don’t listen to me, listen to Don Charnas. Start with this incredible interview he just did with Jesse Thorn on the Bullseye podcast, and then check out his new book, Dilla Time.
And, if you’re like me, spend the next few days revisiting Donuts and his other stuff. I wrote about his first solo record here. Dilla provided so much of the soundtrack to my late high school/college years and beyond, I could just eat this stuff up (like a donut, which I am just realizing how hungry I am while writing this post, and now want donuts. Stay healthy out there).
You can stream Donuts on YouTube (or the streaming service of your choice). Here’s the link and a video for the “Last Donut of the Night” single.
