Over ten years on from his death, J Dilla's presence is still felt. His influence on hip-hop, specifically with his production style, continues to be felt throughout countless releases. It would make sense, then, that a museum would see fit to honor his indisputable legacy sooner rather than later. A museum due to open later this month, Washington D.C.'s National Museum of African American History and Culture, will include J Dilla's very own MPC.
The MPC helped him put together some of his most famous projects, including Welcome to Detroit, Champion Sound, and the landmark instrumental hip-hop masterpiece Donuts. The famous MPC will be available for viewing when at the museum when it opens later this month on September 24, with more information about the museum's grand opening here. The museum will also feature Huddle 'Lead Belly' Ledbetter's guitar, alongside the Parliament Funkadelic 'Mothership' stage prop from George Clinton's home.
