J Dilla Foundation x Akomplice x Joey Bada$$
Through this collaborative project J Dilla continues to bless the world with the gift of music. 100% of our profits will be donated to provide instruments and music lessons to children, who would otherwise be without.
For this collab, we’re proud to have blended the talents of J Dilla (via the J Dilla Foundation) with those of the Beast Coast emcee, Joey Bada$$ (who appears in these photos). Our goal with this project was to make something that we love and that the world loves, and to help enable youth access to music. Included within the collection is a t-shirt and crew neck that pay homage to the hallowed producer through an angelic cloud-graphic of J Dilla’s face. We didn’t feel as though a collaboration of this magnitude would be complete without original music, so we included a 45 record, exclusive to the capsule, which contains an unreleased J Dilla beat dubbed “Two Lips” on Side A and an unreleased Joey Bada$$ track over the aforementioned beat on Side B. Those fortunate enough to obtain “The Set” will be blessed with the J Dilla sublimation shirt, in which the cloud-graphic appears across the entire tee, as well as a newspaper featuring interviews with both Dilla’s mom, “Ms. Yancey” and Joey Bada$$, given by our very own, Patrick Liberty. Through this collaboration, we’re pumped to have been part of bringing together two generations of hip-hop that will reverberate with today’s youth and the 90’s hip hop generation. As Joey describes it, “This project has been a dream come true, working with the soul of my favorite producer of all time is an honor.”
