Following this past weekend’s trio of UK ‘J Dilla Saved My Life’ events, we’ve been digging through the BBE Music back catalogue and revisiting some of his classic material. Check out those releases here.

For those of you lucky enough to have attended one of the shows, props if you managed to cop one of the new t-shirts. The photo featured is a super rare shot of Dilla & Common recording ‘Like Water For Chocolate’ in Detroit in 1999 taken by BBE Records‘ Pete Adarkwah when visiting Jay Dee at home to discuss recording “Welcome To Detroit” for the label. The Doctor’s Orders have been granted exclusive use of the photo to print on the shirts for this years ‘J-Dilla Changed My Life’ tribute parties, with all profits going to the J-Dilla Foundation & Lupus UK.
