Celebrate “Dilla” Month…

When Hip-Hop was it’s commercialization stage J Dilla was a kat who brought it back to the simplified-bare rawness of this music. He is famous for his stripped down, synth-heavy, knocking Hip-Hop. Dilla passed away three years ago this weekend of Lupus. As a tribute to J Dilla here is a quick playlist with some of my favorite tracks by one of the most influential producers in Hip-Hop music… Click HERE to listen to JHigH\’s JDilla Playlist.

Party & Bullshit

I’ve been listening to the radio music at least once a month to see what is new and popular. I bet you’d agree with me that there is a ongoing trend for club music, rather than music with any conscious value. I think it’s a known fact that on a daily basis majority of people rather be surrounded with complete nonsense rather than being challenged mentally.
Hip Hop Club music has been evolving over the years, from story telling to house partying to now, drink buying club sexing vibes. So many of the club songs of today have the same theme, that it’s almost repetitive.

Here are a few club tracks, that mix quality with just plain fun.

Rah Digga – Party & Bullshit

Kardinal Offishall – Dangerous (feat. AKON)

The Notorious B.I.G. – Mo’ Money Mo’ Problems (feat. Puff Daddy & MA$E)

What are some of your favorite Club Tracks?
