The USA Pays Tribute To J Dilla With Coast To Coast Parties

To mark the 10th anniversary of hip hop masterpiece 'The Shining', we’ve pressed J Dilla's final album on 7″ vinyl for the very first time.

Ten years on from J Dilla’s seminal, posthumously completed masterpiece ‘The Shining’, venues across America will be paying homage to the great man and his incredible musical legacy. To mark the occasion, BBE have pressed vocal and instrumental versions album onto x10 7″ vinyl discs for the first time ever. You can purchase the boxed set HERE (a portion of proceeds go to the The Lupus Foundation). Find your nearest ‘Shining’ event below:
