Illa J

After the passing of his brother, Detroit producer/MC Jay Dee, Illa J (born John Yancey) dropped out of Central Michigan University, put aside his inhibitions, and stepped out as an MC and producer. Previously apprehensive about living up to the genius-level standard set by his elder sibling, Illa J became visible outside his local circle through the video for his brother's "Won't Do" -- where he was shown lip-syncing the rhymes -- as well as the Dilla Changed My Life tour, which allowed him to perform for Dilla admirers across the globe. He then got into recording, collaborating with the likes of Karriem Riggins, Guilty Simpson, Black Milk, and Little Brother's Big Pooh. A self-released EP was issued in 2007, featuring self-productions, with the exception of one track ("Me and My Brother") produced by Jay Dee. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi

I don't know where the musical mind goes when it prepares tunes to stimulate the ears, but this is one... stimulating. Nice work.

Dont read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest friday by the love of ur life. Tommorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this u will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading this so don't stop. This so scary put this on at least five songs in 143 minutes. When done press F6 and your lovers name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary cuz it acually works.
