J Dilla's Smile, Story Behind Donuts Cover

 

Remembering J Dilla's Smile

Today marks the 5th anniversary of J Dilla's death. The late hip-hop maestro died Feb. 10, 2006 from complications of lupus at the age of 32. For the month of February, Dilla Dawg's life and music will be celebrated through various tribute/fundraising events worldwide.

Below is a brief video of J Dilla at MED's "Push" video shoot, which was also the photo source for the Donuts album cover. The video's director, Andrew Gura, posted the clip with a link to the back story behind the video and the "smiling" cover photo on his Flickr page. I also posted MED's full-length video, as well.
