J.Dilla

Attention eBay-ers, prepare to get busy. J.Dilla's record collection has been returned from the record store to the Yancey family and now is available to the entire world for purchase...:

Now with the verification from Ma Dukes, a limited amount of J Dilla's personal record collection is being offered for sale with a signed and numbered certificate from Ma Dukes!

These records come from the storage unit that Dilla and Ma Dukes moved his records and personal recordings in after his Detroit basement flooded. Then shortly thereafter he moved to Los Angeles. The storage unit was left by Dilla and taken care of by Ma Dukes but lost once Dilla fell ill and priorities changed. After 5 years it was recently found again. The back payments and fees were paid and Ma Dukes was reunited with the contents she last saw just before leaving to L.A. to take care of Dilla. A planned 2 week trip that turned into years.

All the J Dilla (Slum Village...etc.) test pressings, personal recordings, personal items, tapes, along with a large portion of the record collection are being held by Ma Dukes for inclusion in a possible future Hip Hop museum and upcoming record release projects.

$29.99 gets you a record, Ma Dukes choice (no requests), from James Yancey's personal collection. Buy it now at eBay, it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

3:22 - Ma Dukes is Dilla's mother. Unlike your father, people know who she is...

most used vinyl hasn't been stored properly for years. Anything you buy in a used record store, thrift shop, flea market etc, probably hasn't been stored properly for years.

Thirty bucks for a record that you don't even know what it is?

How do you know MA ain't just gonna go to the local Salvation Army and buy any old record for a buck and then fulfill your thirty dollar order with it?

Not to mention the fact that you can be sure Ma has had the collection appraised and probably had a few big time collector/dj's in there already. You can be sure you ain't getting anything worth anything for that 30.

This is rather insulting. Just keep the collection together and make an archive of it. This is such an important source of knowing the inspiration behind a record producer.

30 dollars to get well-worn records of My Fair Lady and some random European Orchestra performing the hits of Tchaikovsky.

30 dollars buys a lot of hummus.

You can probably bet the collection has already been picked over.

Proceeds from the sale of these records go to benefit the J Dilla Foundation.
