We Not Trappin, We Boom Bappin: Tribute to J. Dilla at Fresh Richmond

Thursday, Feb. 8

Easily one of the greatest beat-makers of all-time, J. Dilla, has always deserved a wider audience. Producer Nottz Raw and turntablist DJ Bee (Philly2VA) will take you on a live journey through the eclectic, funky-ass catalogue of James Dewett Yancey, or J. Dilla, in the space at 213 E. Broad St. A native of Detroit, Dilla passed away in 2006 from a blood disease but his work continues to be massively influential in hip-hop circles. 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. $10. Tickets at
