Firstly – we wanted to thank you for the overwhelming response on the relaunch. Bling is back!!! Shout out to those who joined me on Twitter @jeedo47 and signed up to our Bling47 newsletter. To my newsletter peeps – there will be a special treat in your box this Tuesday, February 7th in celebration of the birthday of James “J Dilla” Yancey. Expect a super rare gem that I can almost promise NO ONE else has. It’s not too late to signup if you haven’t!
In continuing with our Bling47 Breaks series, I had to cover this one myself. This time marks an important phase in the relationship of our crew. When the opportunity for a solo project came from Peter of BBE – it was another crack in the widening gap between Dilla and Slum Village. J took the leap and made one of his most comprehensive projects to date. “Featuring Phat Kat” is just one of the many hidden jewels on the album that would become Welcome 2 Detroit.
