There are several tributes to the late, great James "Jay Dee"/"J Dilla" Yancey floating around, but All the Way to Heaven is one of the best I've heard.
Produced by Theory, one-third of the DC-based hip-hop group The Package, All the Way to Heaven revisits and reconstructs the original songs Dilla sampled for his most famous hits, including The Pharcyde's "Runnin'" and Slum Village's "Get Dis Money."
The result is a lovingly crafted letter to J Dilla, a person who had a major impact on a generation of hip-hop producers, MCs and aficionados alike.
