Records from the collection of late, legendary hiphop producer J Dilla (James DeWitt Yancey) can be found on eBay. Dilla's mother, Maureen "Ma Dukes" Yancey, is planning to sell the vinyl in weekly auctions. You can bid on the goods here. Read the small-print details of the sale and watch ?uestlove's video tribute to J after the jump.
From the dillavinylcollection eBay listing:
1) A signed and numbered certificate from Maureen Yancey (Ma Dukes) stating the LP record you will receive is from J Dilla’s personal collection.
2) An LP originally bought by Dilla (on one of his many crate diggin’ expeditions) still in the loose bag Dilla put all his records in. None of the records have been cleaned or checked for defects. You will receive it just as it was in Dilla’s collection, possible writing on covers, old price tags, fingerprints and all.
The certificates are numbered with the plan of an online registry for Dilla fans to list their Dilla Collection LP. Including the artist, title, and whether any tracks on the LP are known to have been sampled by Dilla. This registry is dependent on the sales of the limited amount of the collection and response from the fans. Visit the J Dilla foundation web site for future updates.
Records are being chosen randomly (Ma’s Choice) so please do not send any requests, it will not be answered.
