James Dewitt Yancey—better known as J Dilla—was a man who was ahead of his time, producing countless timeless beats in his few short years in the game. Questlove called J Dilla the best producer of all-time and “absolutely without peer.” There have been countless tributes and dedication for Jay Dee since he lost his battle with Lupus and thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) at the young age of 32 in 2006. J Dilla’s legacy has lived on throughout hip-hop and he continues to be a major influence on many artists, both rappers and producers, of all walks of life.  One of the main people that carrying on Dilla’s legacy is his mother, Maureen “Ma Dukes” Yancey. Ma Dukes is the chairman and spokesperson for the J Dilla Foundation, an organization that looks to introduce inner city children to the arts. She stopped by XXL offices last week to talk about some of her favorite memories of her son, the immortal J Dilla. —Emmanuel C.M. (@ECM_LP)
