To celebrate Dilla Month 2013, The Estate of James “J Dilla” Yancey partnered with Stussy to create the Dilla World Tour tee. The tee, listing the six albums Dilla created in his lifetime, comes in six colorways. Worldwide shipping available.
Dilla and Stussy’s relationship goes back to the years when Dilla first moved from Detroit to Los Angeles. He lived just around the corner from Stussy’s LA HQ and often visited the store. Photos of Dilla, clad in Stussy gear working on beats in his living room studio, led to the first collaboration with the iconic brand a few years ago.
The Estate of James Yancey is administered by attorney Alex Borden and overseen by the Probate Court of the State of California on behalf of Yancey’s four heirs – his mother, Maureen “Madukes” Yancey, his brother John “Illa J” Yancey and his two daughters, Ja’Mya Yancey and Ty-monae Whitlow.
