Read an early excerpt of the oral history of the classic J Dilla debut, Welcome 2 Detroit, written by John Vanderpuije. The oral history will be included in the Welcome 2 Detroit 20-year box set.
Next month will be the 20th anniversary of Welcome 2 Detroit, legendary producer J Dilla’s masterful debut. To celebrate the occasion, BBE, the label that released the album, will drop a special 20th Anniversary Box Set on February 5th, 2021, just a couple of days before Dilla Day

The box set is massive: it spans 12 discs, featuring instrumentals, unreleased alternative mixes, studio outtakes, and new interpretations by DJs Azymuth and Muro. What’s really exciting is that there will also be an oral history breaking down the making of the album. Written by British writer and filmmaker John Vanderpuije, the oral history will include interviews with Dwele, Karriem Riggins, Amp Fiddler, Big Tone, Frank Nitt, Ma Dukes, and more.
