The late J Dilla died way too soon six years ago at the age of 32. Nevertheless, the storied producer’s legacy lives on via his music, the adoration of an ever growing fanbase and now, a vinyl toy made in his likeness. The J Dilla Foundation is releasing the Phil Young Song designed figurine made to look like the indelible James Yancey.
The detailing on the figurine is pretty thorough. Dilla sports a Detroit Tigers fitted, a tee that says “Dilla Changed My Life,” a chain with a donut charm, a pair of Nike Dunks and an MPC at his side. It better be an Akai MPC60, for those that know. The sure to be a collector’s item will be available later this year. A posthumous album called Rebirth of Detroit, was released this past June.
