Raise It Up: A Celebration of J. Dilla


words by Ryan Schleicher

J. Dilla’s stay on earth was not nearly long enough, but his contributions to the hip-hop world were gigantic and lasting. He was able to work with the heavyweights of hip-hop – Tribe Called Quest, De La, Busta, Pharcyde and more – but he also influenced, and continues to influence Milwaukee’s varied hip-hop world. This Saturday Jank and Bizzon (co-hosts of the Tuesday night hip-hop show on WMSE) host a celebration of Dilla featuring some of Milwaukee’s finest MCs and producers. Dana Coppa, Haz Solo, Nigel Wade, MC Mikal and many more celebrate a life cut short and come Sunday, Monday and every day thereafter, you can be sure they will continue celebrating, or at least honoring, J. Dilla with music influenced by the great producer.
Raise It Up! A Celebration of J Dilla, takes place at 8pm this Saturday at Stonefly Brewery. 21+
