Yup and even after his death I dont think he is getting as much recognition as he should. Or maybe he is and I'm not exposed to it? I just feel we should be hearing R.I.P Dilla often as much as other RAPPERS get that treatment. Man this guy was amazing. Definately gonna be missed as far as wanting to hear new sounds from him but he left behind classic production that will still get you in the mood years after u first heard it.
