Flip the Script consists of Joe Bourke, Caspar Hardaker and Ben Hinchley. Earlier this year Flip the Script released their second mixtape, Crewsin’, and knocked off a load of goals in the process. So they thought what next? And looking to the past they saw J Dilla, a man who has influenced these young artists so much that they thought it’d be stupid not to recognize him. This mixtape is titled ‘what u know about Dilla?’. All the songs you will hear on this mixtape are made using J Dilla’s beats.
For those who don’t know J Dilla (kill yourselves) he was a member of Slum Village, a brilliant producer/rapper who worked with The Roots, Common, The Pharcyde, De La Soul (who inspired the mixtape cover) and so many more. But sadly he passed away February 10, 2006 from a rare blood disease known as Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura. ‘what u know about dilla?’ is the groups way of trying to thank J Dilla for his music. Their intentions are to give back to J Dilla by donating the funds raised from mixtape and more to the J Dilla Foundation.
You can pick up a copy of the new tape here.
