Earlier this year Flip the Script released their second mixtape, crewsin’, and knocked off a load of goals in the process. So we thought what next? And looking to the past we saw J Dilla, a man who has influenced us so much that it'd be stupid not to recognize him. This mixtape is titled ‘what u know about dilla?’ because we want to share the talent that burned within that man with everyone. All the songs you will hear on this mixtape are made using J Dilla’s beats.
For those who don’t know J Dilla he was a member of Slum Village, a brilliant producer/rapper who worked with The Roots, Common, The Pharcyde, De La Soul (who inspired the mixtape cover) and so many more. But sadly he passed away February 10, 2006 from a rare blood disease known as Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura. ‘what u know about dilla?’ is our way of trying to thank J Dilla for his music. Our intentions are to give back to J Dilla by donating the funds raised from mixtape and more to the J Dilla Foundation.
Flip the Script is Joe Bourke, Caspar Hardaker and Ben Hinchley.
