February is almost here and you know what that means. It’s J Dilla month. This year, DJ Trumastr brings his 5th Annual Beat*Shot Spins for J Dilla back to Red Square in Albany. The event, which celebrates the life and body of work of one of the most prolific and well-known Hip Hop producers of all time, brings local and regional musicians together for a night of great music and art that pay tribute to the late producer.

This year, the event features a special guest, J Dilla’s mother, Maureen “Ma Dukes” Yancey and she will be in attendance at the show. Performances this year will include J-Live, Oddisee, JB aka Dirty Moses, PJ Katz and the Dilla Gents and Midas & Rawhead. The show is 21+ and kicks off at 8pm. Cost for the event is $10 and the profits go toward the J Dilla Foundation which supports Lupus research and inner city music programs for children. Albany come out for a great night of ALL things Jay Dee!
