When J Dilla lived and worked in Los Angeles, he was right around the corner from the Stussy office, and it was photograph of him working at home on his MPC wearing a Stussy T-shirt which kicked off this long running collaboration between Stussy and J Dilla’s Pay Jay Productions.
Stussy and Pay Jay have teamed up for this third commemorative J Dilla t-shirt in celebration of “Dilla Day 2014″ on February 7th, presented by Stussy & Rappcats.com. This tee is constructed of 100% soft cotton & made in Mexico. A crew neck t-shirt, which features an 2005 image of J Dilla (photo by Roger Erickson) along with Stussy graphics.
Pay Jay Productions is run by The Estate of James Yancey on behalf of Yancey’s four heirs – his mother, Maureen “Madukes” Yancey, his brother John “Illa J” Yancey and his two daughters, Ja’Mya Yancey and Ty-monae Whitlow.
