So I found out something pretty cool. J Dilla and Nujabes were born on the same exact day, February 7, 1974. Seriously, the planets must have been aligned perfectly that day or something.

Wow...

They really must've been. Now they're both gone... :(

That's really weird. Two musical geniuses born on the same exact day.

(Updated ) EternalXIII responds:

yeah, they both died in February too, different days though. How fucking weird would it have been if they both died on the same day!

To be honest, I didn't realize that the votes would be based on who sounded like J Dilla the most. I guess I thought it would be more about hearing a J Dilla influence in the beat but it still being your style. Like a "Thank you" type song. So, if it's about what beats sounds more like J Dilla, definitely Kazi.

EternalXIII responds:

This type of contest is really hard judge, I mean, what makes a tribute, a tribute? In the end I think it should come down to two main factors; Do you feel that the track in some way gives tribute to Dilla, and do you like it xD You can't ignore that impulse when you hear a hot track that makes your foot tap or your head bop.

First off, I heard some great work from all the participants. But I gotta give it to Kami because I've been a fan of his work for a while now, and that beat was just bumpin. It was a little bit of a shame that more producers on the site couldn't participate, but it was still interesting to hear some good music! Thanks to everybody who entered and to E-thirteen for hosting.

I gotta give it to Kami though, that song SOUNDED like a dilla beat.

ya kami's and sinerider's were close writing wise, but sine's mix seemed a lot cleaner.
