Here’s my selection of the best J Dilla songs ever
J Dilla is one of the greatest hip hop producers to ever live. J Dilla was 32 years old when he moved on to his next life in February of 2006 due to cardiac arrest and other medical complications. I’m a big fan of J Dilla’s music, and this list is comprised of my favorite songs produced by him.
This top 40 best J Dilla songs list features mostly songs with vocals instead of just pure instrumentals because I feel like J Dilla created some of his best music when he collaborated with other artists or made remixes for them.
The songs aren’t listed in any particular order because I don’t feel like there is a specific best #1 J Dilla song. I like them all. If I missed one of your favorite songs by J Dilla, feel free to include your own personal favorite in a comment!
