JDILLA’S 1st RIP shirt by LISTEN CLOTHING 2006
As our date to depart via Sao Paulo BR came close, we got an email direct from the Mochilla headquarters about our brother James Yance passing to the other side of life. We stud mute as we heard the news that afternoon, Dilla is not with us anymore. At the care of his mom, he gave his last words and sounds… that mpc never left his sight during his illness, it only made him stronger to pull for those days. Ma’ Dukes at his side till the last minute. As time passed and the funeral came, we here at Listen Clothing decided to take the first step in designing a simple shirt in his memory and work as a Hip Hop Icon. The design was send to Stonesthrow (Dilla’s label at the time) to make sure it was ok in printing a limited amount (50 pieces) which traveled to SF for the 1st release of the Donuts LP. The proceeds given to Ma’ Dukes. In this article, we encounter some photos at BoomBox this past week, where Jrocc wears the shirt made in 2006. We hope that Ma’ Dukes overcomes all obstacles given to her since the passing of her son, our Hip Hop hero. JAMES “DILLA” YANCE
