My Own Lil' J Dilla

I was holed up in a Starbucks knocking out some work yesterday when I got this text message from Meron...

The girl had me smiling big and I could't wait to get home!

Come to find out she had found an app for her (unconnected) "cellphone" that was a little beat-maker - a sequencer loaded up with different sounds that would allow her to make her own beats!

And girl was putting in WORK!

She had programmed her own little beat...

And then turned around and wrote an entire song to it!


Daddy was beaming from ear to ear!

And for those wondering what the heck the title of this post means:

James Dewitt Yancey (February 7, 1974 – February 10, 2006),better known by the stage names J Dilla and Jay Dee, was an American record producer and rapper who emerged from the mid-1990s underground hip hop scene in Detroit, Michigan as one third of the acclaimed music group Slum Village. His obituary at NPR stated that he "was one of the music industry's most influential hip-hop artists", working with notable acts including A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Busta Rhymes, Erykah Badu, The Roots, The Pharcyde and Common.
There ya have it... my own little J Dilla!

Meron... I LOVE that you LOVE to sing, write songs and be creative!

You encourage and inspire me more than you'll ever know!

Never ever stop releasing what He put in your heart, girl!
