J Dilla‘s influence on the world of hip-hop is immense and nearly 15 years after his death, fans continue to enjoy the tracks he produced. From posthumous albums to the output he gave us while he was on this planet, the Detroit producer never disappointed. Perhaps one of his greatest projects is 2001’s Welcome 2 Detroit which is celebrating its 20th anniversary. With Dilla’s birthday going down on Sunday, February 7th, BBE Music is now honoring Dilla by coming through with a special version of the album, which is now available for streaming.
