Allow Detroit’s Illa J to reintroduce himself (in the radio interview above, and with his album linked below). He is very much and very proud to be the brother of the late great J Dilla.

But being seen as just ‘some dude flowing over Dilla beats,’ or as some Slum Village hanger-on… nah, miss him with that.

When I saw everyone talking about her recent interview it piqued my interest to see what the fuss was about. After watching this interview I’m more of a fan of Azealia Banks the person even though I’m not too familiar with her music.
