J Dilla: Behind The Beat (Poster)

Back in 2005, photographer Raph Rashid was hoping to complete a book of  hip-hop home studios by getting pics of J Dilla at work in Los Angeles.   Unknown to all but a small circle of people at the time, J Dilla had  been in and out of the hospital all year dealing with increasingly  serious health problems.  It was summer, during a brief period when  Dilla was home, working on The Shining, looking and feeling good, when Raph came to take this picture. It was published with others later that year in his book Behind the Beat: Hip-Hop Home Studios. 

Poster will be available for purchase through StonesThrow Feb 14
