Through this collaborative project J Dilla continues to bless the world with the gift of music. 100% of Akomplice’s profits will be donated to provide instruments and music lessons to children, who would otherwise be without.
For this collab, Akomplice blended the talents of J Dilla (via the J Dilla Foundation) with those of the Beast Coast emcee, Joey Bada$$ (who appears in these photos). Included within the collection is a t-shirt and crew neck that pay homage to the hallowed producer through an angelic cloud-graphic of J Dilla’s face. Also included is a 45 record, exclusive to the capsule, which contains an unreleased J Dilla beat dubbed “Two Lips” on Side A and an unreleased Joey Bada$$ track over the aforementioned beat on Side B. Those fortunate enough to obtain “The Set” will be blessed with the J Dilla sublimation shirt, in which the cloud-graphic appears across the entire tee, as well as a newspaper featuring interviews with both Dilla’s mom, “Ms. Yancey” and Joey Bada$$, done by Patrick Liberty. As Joey describes it, “This project has been a dream come true, working with the soul of my favorite producer of all time is an honor.”
