5th Annual Bmore Dilla event: Forever Shining

It is no secret that we at Under Sound have been huge fans and supporters of J Dilla’s work.  He’s been such an inspiration to all of us and we encourage you all to support this great event.  J Dilla’s mom, Ms. Maureen ‘Ma Dukes’ Yancey, along with T3 of Slum Village will be present at the event.  You can also expect amazing tribute performances from many of Under Sound’s friends such as Cynthia Hawkes, Sean Toure, Ullnevano, J Soul, Tislam The Great, Ab Rock and more.  If you’re in the Baltimore area this Sunday, March 6th, please go out and support.  Shouts to the good people over at Club Reality for always supporting great hip-hop and contributing to keeping Dilla’s legacy alive!
