Raise It Up For Your Ma Dukes

A couple of months ago, my dude DJ Nana hit me up and asked me to be part of a very special weekend — Maureen ‘Ma Dukes’ Yancey, aka J Dilla’s mom, was coming down to Toronto for the first time and would be screening Suite For Ma Dukes. [For previous blog post, click HERE.]

A short film about an incredible composer who took Dilla’s most beloved hits, this man had an orchestra perform them, alongside some of our favorites: Common, Bilal, D’Angelo, and more.

Tomorrow is a special art showcase where all our footage and photos that we documented during that weekend, will be on display, a collaboration of other artists who have re-worked our pieces.

**Update: I will be working at RapCity tomorrow night for the opening reception party, BUT I will be there afterwards for the after party endeavors!  The exhibit will be running on Friday and Saturday as well. For full facebook details, click HERE.
