Q-Tip And Common To Host J Dilla Memorial Gig

LATEST: Rappers Q-TIP AND COMMON will be responsible for organising a memorial concert for the late hip-hop producer J DILLA, who died on 10 February (06).

His funeral will take place in Los Angeles tomorrow (14FEB06) and plans for a memorial gig are already under way.

Sources tell AllHipHop.com that Q-Tip and Common have yet to decide on a venue for the event, which will be played in honour of Dilla, born JAMES YANCEY, who died at the age of 32.

Dilla had spent much of last year (05) in hospital fighting killer disease lupus, which causes the immune system to attack the body's own tissue and vital organs.

The hip-hop star left his group SLUM VILLAGE in 2003 and went on to produce songs for Common, ERYKAH BADU, BUSTA RHYMES and DE LA SOUL, among others.
