The celebration of Dilla's life comes to Los Angeles.
While the Dilla Day celebration was already announced to be taking place in Miami this year as a full weekend,it's now announced to be taking place in Los Angeles as well. The event is scheduled to take place in Miami February 5th through 8th, as well as taking place February 13th in Los Angeles.
Dilla Day LA will be hosted by Dilla's longtime friend, Dave New York who released the following statement:
"This is the first Dilla Day in Los Angeles. There was a lot of drama at Dilla Day Detroit behind the scenes, especially backstage, that a lot of people don’t know about if you weren’t there. Ma Dukes and I were talking and she knew how much love he had in LA from the fans. I was like, ‘Ma Dukes, why don’t we do a Dilla Day in LA?’ Ma Dukes looked at me like, ‘Well, you’re in charge of Dilla Day LA.’”
