J Dilla to be inducted into the Smithsonian Museum
J Dilla’s Moog and MPC are to be presented in the Smithsonian Museum as part of a new African-American History & Culture exhibition.
Detroit bred producer J Dilla left behind a massive legacy, with collaborations from MF Doom, De La Soul & A Tribe Called Quest he was arguably a huge influence on late 90’s Hip Hop. Having previously won the “Plugs Artist of The Year” award and praises from Carl Craig it’s fair to say J Dilla is recognised as one of Hip Hop’s most influential greats and for this reason (and others) it makes sense to feature him in a display celebrating African-American culture.
The exhibition sets out to celebrate and educate people about African-American culture and how it shaped America.
