Q-Tip, Slum Village to Perform at J Dilla Benefit Show

The J. Dilla Foundation, in association with XXL magazine, is proud to present the “One Won’t Do Pt. 2: A J Dilla Tribute and Fundraiser” at DROM Nightclub in New York City.

The tribute/fundraiser will feature live performances by Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest alongside Slum Village, Illa J and music by Mick Boogie & DJ Metaphysic.

The mission of The J Dilla Foundation is to help inner city music programs. The foundation was started by Maureen Yancey; the mother of the late Grammy-award winning record producer James “J Dilla” Yancey. Dilla passed away in 2006 after a struggle with Lupus.

In an interview with DromNYC Maureen said, “One of the things he wanted me to do with his legacy was to use it to help others – kids who were musically gifted but had little hope due to poverty. It is the foundation’s hope that by funding and encouraging such progressive music curricula, young prodigies, and music enthusiast alike will have the tools and support they need to flourish and become successful within the entertainment industry.”

The show is set for Thursday, February 3. Doors open at 8 p.m. EST and the show starts at 9. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door you can purchase them at —Michael Naclerio
