Continuing our Black History Month festivities this week on the Beat Diet. We start it off paying our respects to one of the greatest to ever step behind the boards, J. Dilla. Then we step back 20 years to play a set of 2003 hip hop. Then a couple Canadian tracks from 1998, and then we take it back 30 years for a set from 1993, possibly one of the greatest years in hip hop releases. Despite cramming as many tracks as possible into the last 40 minutes,  I couldn’t believe how many amazing songs I had to leave off.
