MTV lists Assorted Donuts as one of the 10 essential mixtapes of the year!

Earlier this year, I teamed up with ?uestlove's website
Okayplayer to drop this tribute mix to the late great J Dilla aka Jay Dee. Originally I was remixing tracks off of Donuts but when Kweli gave me his freestyle over an unreleased Dilla track and I mysteriously received a Notorious B.I.G. remix that Dilla had personally done, it turned into a bigger project. It's been about 5 months since we put it online as a free download and in that time the response has been tremendous (almost 50,000 downloads). I didn't personally know Dilla but was a huge fan of his production and music. To get props personally from his family and peers is a feeling that I can't put into words! There is no way I could've done this project without all the peeps who helped me and supported it. On that note I want to say THANK YOU to everybody who was involved! I would name names but I don't wanna forget anybody!

In case u missed it, here are the links once again.
