James 'J Dilla' / 'Jay Dee' Yancey leaves behind an impression on hip hop that will last the test of time. A bridge between the underground and mainstream, Dilla's contributions ranged from single handedly defining Detroit hip hop as a founding member of Slum Village to providing his production talents to Common, D'Angelo, Busta Rhymes, Erykah Badu, A Tribe Called Quest, The Pharcyde, The Roots, Janet Jackson and Macy Gray.

"The Shining" marks the reunion  of J Dilla and BBE, the label who released the producer's first solo album "Welcome 2 Detroit" back in 2001. Featuring an impressive guest list that includes Busta Rhymes, D'Angelo Pharoahe Monch, Dwele, Madlib, Black Thought (from The Roots), J Rocc, Guilty Simpson & Karriem Riggins, "The Sining" serves up a strong set of inventive hip hop and hip hop-soul cuts. There's even sleeve notes by Dilla's number 1 fan Ahmir (Questlove) Thompson from The Roots.
