This week on the Seven O'Clock Sample, we celebrate the late-great J Dilla.  James (J-Dilla) Yancey would have tunred 40 this weekend.  We lost Jay Dee way too early, but he left us with a lot of great music.  His solo work got a lot of attention later in his life, but his career took off in the late 90s and early 2000s, as a producer for other artists.  In 2000 he teamed up with Erykah Badu on her album MAMA's GUN.

Dilla was th man behind this amazing track, and it's sample source is equally amazing.  Here is Tarika Blue with the song "Dreamflower".
