Products / J Dilla - Donuts
Released just three days before Dilla's untimely passing, 'Donuts' is an almost entirely instrumental hip hop record, featuring 31 tracks. It was produced and recorded while he lay in hospital, dealing with complications relating to thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura - a disease he'd been suffering with for three years, by this point. Pitchfork describe the album as "pure postmodern art—which was hip-hop's aim in the first place". Highlight track: 'One Eleven'
