DC Loves Dilla

DJ night
Please note: This event has already occurred.
Every February, a posse of DC's best selectors get together to tag-team their way through an expert curation of the catalog of the departed but always celebrated hip-hop super producer J Dilla. It's one of the best ways to experience the breadth of his work, as the DJs mine the well-known as well as the lost elements of his catalog, and you're surrounded with fans who are all equally devoted to the beats. Ten DJs pay homage at U Street Music Hall, including Waajeed of Slum Village, Book, 2-Tone Jones and Quartermaine. Dilla's mother, "Ma Dukes" Yancey, is the special guest. As always, the proceeds go to the J Dilla Foundation.
