WATCH AN AMAZING VISUAL INTERPRETATION OF J DILLA’S DONUTS ALBUM

A fan made video interpretation of the late J Dilla’s album “Donuts” has surfaced and is simply remarkable to watch. To splice together 44 minutes of visuals that include rare clips of performances by Dionne Warwick, Ronald Isley, Eddie Kendricks and more that were sampled for the album is all kinds of awesome and our hats should be tipped to the crew that put this together. Check it out!
