5th Annual J Dilla Tribute & Fund Raiser
The DMV loves Dilla each and every day, but this Friday heads are really expected to come out and represent for the 5th Annual J Dilla Tribute and Fundraiser. The Washington, DC music community will come together once again for a night filled with hip hop and soul to honor the legacy of beatmaker, producer and DJ extraordinaire J Dilla who lost his battle with lupus in 2006. This year's tribute is on tap to be the largest yet, with a venue change to the Black Cat and with special guest Talib Kweli headlining the event, which will feature local talent galore such as Kokayi, Diamond District and Alison Carney to name a few. The brainchild of J Laine who will serve as the evening's musical director, proceeds from the event will benefit the J Dilla and Lupus Foundations. Tickets are on sale for the low-low of $15 in advance and $20 day of the show at the Black Cat box office or online at TicketAlternative.
