Sweet mother of Jesus, what the fuck is this Miami Vice reject doing? I’m surprised he didn’t turn his hat to the side and start ‘busting a beatbox’ in true Guttenburg/Selleck/Danson/’Three Men & A Little Lady’ style. I’m sure his descent into heroin and gay porn was a quick one – probably about 5 minutes after he turned off the camera right here.
I’m sorry if it seems like I’m banging on about this like I have an axe to grind with the man – I honestly don’t. (Its actually a circular saw, but I digress.) I felt though that another attempt to deify Dilla in the latest issue of Scratch (The Roots cover) couldn’t go without a mention. By the way, there’s a beautiful interview with Dilla’s mother on the opposite page to the one where the quotes below appear, which really is quite emotional to read. (See I’m not a heartless bastard at all. At least not all the time.)
