Dilla forever.

It’s been nearly nine years since legendary Detroit hip-hop producer J Dilla (born James Dewitt Yancey) died, just three days after his 32nd birthday, from a rare blood disorder.

But there’s no doubt that Jay Dee’s legacy lives. And every year, on the anniversary of his birth, his mother, Maureen “Ma Dukes” Yancey, and the rest of the J-loving world, from the Motor City to NYC to London town, have celebrated Dilla Day.

Now, though, this honorary hip-hop holiday has expanded to an entire weekend. And it’s officially moved to Miami. Two weeks ago, Ma Dukes and crew announced the 23-act lineup. This week, they reveal the party plan.

Just check the cut for J Dilla Weekend 2015’s Miami schedule so far.
