Video: J.Dilla - Still Shining' (Documentary)

Legendary producer/artist J.Dilla is a wunderkind who truly touched the souls of all those who encountered his music. It's hard to believe that it's been four years since his passing. His contributions to "Hip Hop" as a culture is endless. His discography reads like a who's who of Hip Hop. From ATCQ to Common to Slum Village and more. The list seems endless. As a fan what made me pay attention was his details and genuine love for his craft. His music is timeless and records made ten years ago sound just as fresh as the the day they were created. Directed by Brian "B.Kyle" Atkins "Still Shining" is look at the man from those closest to him. Peep the breakdown of the various segments after the jump.
