Ramson Badbonez pays respect to the legendary J Dilla with his free mixtape, J Dilla Tribute Mix Part 2…
Following on from the success of 2010′s part 1, the North London rapper selected 18 more Dilla beats to spit on, making them his own. A long time fan of the Detroit producer and MC, Badbonez went for the less obvious song choices, including MF DOOM’s Lightworks, a track which wasn’t released until after the producer’s death. Familiar instrumentals from tracks by A Tribe Called Next, Pharcyde and Frank and Dank are also featured.
For those unfamiliar with Dilla, this mixtape demonstrates why he is considered one of the best hip hop producers ever. For those unfamiliar with Badbonez, his raw lyrics and rugged attitude are in full effect.
