Earlier this year on April 24th, author Jordan Ferguson released his new book “J. Dilla’s Donuts”; an examination of J Dilla’s final album (Donuts) before passing three days after his 32nd birthday. The 130-page book of Bloomsbury Publishing’s ‘33 1/3’ series, contains research of theories about death and the role they play in the ‘Donuts’ album, why he chose particular samples and more, as well as, a sound biography of J Dilla.
Life + Times was able to catch up with Ferguson to discuss. Read an excerpt below::

At this point, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve listened to it. People ask me am I sick of it and the funny thing is, I’m not. If anything, I love it more now than I did when I started the book, and this is after probably hundreds of listens. I still think it’s a genius work made more so by the fact of the conditions in which it was created, and if it adds to your appreciation that’s fantastic. That’s all I wanted out of this project: to do right by him, and give back a little bit of the enjoyment that he has brought to my life.” – Ferguson
