R.I.P. J DILLA "Jay Dee", the man, James Yancey

Currently Playing: You Know What Love Is by J-88

On February 10th, James Yancey, aka J Dilla, also known as Jay Dee, passed away. For those in the know, this was and still is in my mind, one of the top hip hop producers EVER. I LOVE THIS MAN'S MUSIC. My neck is still hurting from snapping off this dude's beats cuz I have NEVER heard a wack beat from him. You don't know how many times I've burned the midnight oil on some freelance with Slum Village, on repeat...Champion Sound, on repeat...J-88, Best Kept Secret, on repeat...Phat Kat, on repeat...Frank N Dank, on repeat...Welcome to Detroit, on repeat...Tribe Called Quest, on repeat...Common, Like Water for Chocolate, on repeat...the list of classics this man has produced goes on and on.

There's was a time when I was into music production. Dr. Dre and Jay Dee are my top cats. The moment I heard them snares and just the non-digital, organic feel of the beats, I WAS HOOKED. Real Hip Hop is so precious. It's such a pleasure to hear it done RIGHT. And, I'm not mad at the fact the authenticity of the music has somewhat been relegated to club jazz. That just means it's "choice" listening, not for the squeamish...But, it's that ecclectic vibe that this man crafted that has kept me breathing many a night.

His passing is so unexpected. Cat was 32 years old!!! 32! That is crazy! Life, man...I can't even put it into words...but, everyday, man...everyday, you gotta live. And, if you do right, you can leave a positive contribution behind, like this man. So, even though you're gone in the physical, you'll always be here in spirit living through your creations. That's whatzup.

R.I.P. Jay Dee. You'll always be here with me.

I had hust ordered Jay dee's Dounuts(another JD classic) off the net when I heard about this. The word is that he pretty much worked himself to much, not eating good, not sleeping, it caught up to him damn.......

术+术:可能是唯一有可能冲上2300的同职业组合,天赋一般选用双恶魔法+贼:控制+爆发型,法师的爆发力略胜术士,不过容错性非常小,游戏相似组合还有法+野D,法+暗牧法+法:双冰法控制,综合来说还不错,续战力也存活能力也很强。双奥法的秒杀流一经提出就被喷的面目全非,我本人其实尝试过这个组合,可惜装备只有S2,法伤最多也只能撑到102X(现在能高不少),魔兽队友情况也差不多。这样的组合容错性低的离谱,虽然有10000+HP 400+韧性,但是感觉一被打就瞬间死,而且跑还跑不掉,所以这个打法还是更适合高端副本装,反正一样死很快。组合上还是克死战士队,别和我提盾反,网络游戏那么明显的动画效果能吸到个火冲不错了。网游基本上能够硬顶过我们5秒的职业只有骑士,冰法,盗贼和恶魔SS了。打盗贼队伍,如果是盗贼+看的见,一律先把看的见的OOXX了,双盗贼很难打,2斗篷我们免费网络游戏直接去一人。最后被一个队恶魔SS+骑士卡住了,因为奥法的后续爆发几乎没有,开局秒恶魔SS和骑士都不成功。感觉装备足够猛的话,2000是没问题的,2000以后看能否连好沉默来秒SS了。法伤最好是NOBUFF 1200+以上,最新网游保证秒杀的成功率,可以不用考虑血和韧性,建议装备牛B的法师们平时娱乐使用,非常畅快的战斗贼+暗牧:爆发力非常强的组合,而且他们的视频里很不厚道的最新免费网络游戏吃了金童3场贼+野D:第一赛季闷+盲+消失补闷+飓风的完美控制秒杀型队伍,不过在徽章能解所有控制技能之后容错性大大降低了。
