On the birthday of legendary producer J Dilla, here’s an interview with fellow Hip-Hop legend Phife Dawg. The A Tribe Called Quest member speaks on what Dilla meant to him as a producer and a friend. Dilla produced may hits for #ATCQ and one of the last singles from Phife himself entitled “Dear Dilla.”
