D.C. Loves Dilla Fundraiser & Concert 2014: FuseBox Radio Broadcast x BlackRadioIsBack.com Pictures & Video

Here are some pictures and video footage taken at the DC Loves Dilla - 9th Annual Tribute and Fundraiser Concert that was held at the Howard Theatre in Washington, DC on Thursday, July 17, 2014 by the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast and BlackRadioIsBack.com family.

For those who aren't familiar with the extremely talented producer and MC, Detroit's own James “J Dilla” Yancey inspired millions with his music on the mic and behind the boards for artists including Common, Raekwon, Erykah Badu, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Busta Rhymes, A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, N'Dea Davenport and many more. He passed away on February 10, 2006 after a long bout battling with Lupus.  

The DC Loves Dilla movement was created by 
Cultural Curator Munch Joseph and HedRush Music to celebrate J Dilla and honor his career works.  

"Carrying on the musical legacy of J Dilla for the 9th year and counting is something HedRush and myself look forward to. Personally, it's my way of paying homage to a great creator as well as doing our part to continually add balance to urban music. Dilla's music accomplishes that on many levels," says Munch Joseph when asked the motivation behind the Tribute Concert ad Fundraiser.

Hope you enjoy a bit of the great performances on display here and the event pictures throughout the evening's festivities!
