Grav - City To City (Classic Kanye West Production)

Undergrounds heads you remember this! I was listening to some old 88.5 Rhythm & Vibe Tapes that I recorded back in 96. I came across this track by Grav. It features Al Tariq & Lil Ray but I totally forgot that Kanye West produced this track. You can hear him on the intro as well. Man have times changed...Khanone

"It was near the end of summer 2005, and James Yancey was sitting in a
hospital bed at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles.

He couldn’t walk. He could barely talk. And after spending most of the
winter and spring in the hospital, receiving treatment for a rare, life-threatening
blood disease and other complications, he had been re-admitted.

His body was killing him, and little could be done about it.

It was a grim prognosis, but it wasn’t deterring him from tinkering
with his electronic drum machine.

In the sterile white hospital room, the tools of his trade surrounded
him: turntables, headphones, crates of records, a sampler, his drum machine and a computer, stuff his mother and friends from L.A.-based record label Stones Throw had lugged to his hospital room. Sometimes his doctor would listen to the beats through Yancey’s headphones, getting a hip-hop education from one of the best in the business.

Yancey tampered with his equipment until his hands swelled so much he could barely move them. When the pain was too intense, he’d take a break. His mother massaged his fingertips until the bones stopped aching.

Then he’d go back to work. Sometimes he’d wake her up in the middle
of the night, asking to be moved from his bed to a nearby reclining chair
so he could layer more hard-hitting beats atop spacey synths or other
sampled sounds, his creations stored on computer. Yancey told his doctor he was proud of the work, and that all he wanted to do was finish the album.

Before September ended, he’d completed all but two songs for “Donuts,” a disc that hit stores on Feb. 7, his 32nd birthday.

Three days after its release, he died.

J Dilla is the one of the greatest beatmakers of all time..his music is a
big inspiration for me..i’m thankful for every piece he has given to

So i took this strong influence and did a beattape called muffins, mainly according to dillas legandary donuts album. You will recognize some samples dilla also worked with.."
