Beedie - Ruff Draft: J Dilla Changed My Life Mixtape

At this time of the year we are typically inundated with J Dilla tributes. You can't swing a cat without hitting someone with a mixtape full of songs over Dilla beats.  (Editor's note:  I am not advocating the swinging of cats, just stating that there are lots of Dilla projects.  I love dogs and like cats.)  That being said, I recently saw Beedie as one of the opening acts for Black Milk ( . . .who shut the place down, btw) a couple weeks ago.  I liked what I heard so I decided to pass along.

thanks for posting... i'm always skeptical of MCs releasing a whole album of Dilla's beats, but this is actually pretty dope. the flow of the rhymes fits J's mode in a big way.

my group recorded a version of The $ too, feel free to listen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BUTYvlJC0mg
