J DILLA'S RECORD COLLECTION FOR SALE ON EBAY

A limited selection of LPs from J Dilla's personal record collection have been put up for sale on eBay.

This portion of records was first recovered from his basement studio in Detroit before they were permanently moved into storage in 2004.

The legendary hip hop producer, otherwise known as James Yancey, died in 2006 at the age of 32 from a cardiac arrest. Since then, the storage unit was thought to be lost until Dilla's mother, Maureen "Ma Dukes" Yancey, retrieved the rare collection.

Maureen Yancey has now put a random selection of her son's records up for sale on eBay, noting: “test pressings, personal recordings, personal items, tapes, along with a large portion of the record collection” will not be but put up for sale online.

Successful buyers will receive an LP originally purchased by Dilla along with a signed certificate to confirm its authenticity.
