Joe Black's J Dilla the Specialist: Winner of “So Far To Go” Art Contest

The J Dilla Foundation, a separate but complementary entity to the J Dilla Estate, has announced the winner of an artwork contest: “J DILLA the SpeciaLIST,” created by artist and designer Joe Buck.

My goal with this design is to fully capture the magnitude of the body of work Dilla left behind. This is my painstaking attempt to document everything I could find by way of his life and discography. A true workaholic who loved Hip Hop, Life and Music.

“J DILLA the SpeciaLIST” is now being produced as a limited edition, Giclee print series, signed by Joe Buck and J Dilla’s mother, Maureen “Ma Dukes” Yancey, as well as a t-shirt. Proceeds will be donated to the J Dilla Foundation and fund their ongoing programs.

The prints and shirt are available here:

J Dilla Foundation has filed for tax-exempt 501(c)(3) status as a non-profit charitable institution to help fund the development of music in the inner city and provide scholarships to students enrolled at schools with progressive music curricula. For more about the J Dilla Foundation, visit:
