Dillatroit 5 

When: Sun., Feb. 9, 8 p.m. 2020
Price: $25-$50
Just three days after the release of his highly influential record Donuts and his 32nd birthday, prolific producer J. Dilla died of complications from lupus. Detroit has not forgotten Dilla or his massive contribution in shaping Detroit’s underground hip-hop scene, nor his work with an impressive list of A-list musicians, including Common, Janet Jackson, Macy Gray, and Erykah Badu. For the last five of the 14 years since his death, Detroit has formally come together to pay tribute to Dilla with Dillatroit. Hosted by emcee Miz Korona, Uncle P, and Bishop Lamont, this year’s event will welcome guests Guilty Simpson, Phat Kat, Big Noyd (of Mobb Deep), A.R.E.S., Clear Soul Forces, Killa Ghaanz, 5-ELA, and more. Music will be provided by DJs Los, Butter, RO, Tony Tone, Sabotage, and King David, as well as DDrew Green, Junes Flow, and Max Julian.
