These are super super rare pictures of James ‘J-Dilla’ Yancey’s Studio while recording ‘Like Water For Chocolate’ with Common.

I came accross these while helping Pete from BBE records (pictured alongside Dilla in the top photo) move house and he kindly let me take copies.

This is Dilla’s first home studio in Detroit and in the last pic you can actually see Common sitting with his back to camera.

If you love J-Dilla make sure you represent at the ‘J-Dilla Changed My Life’ fundraisers in London, Manchester & Brighton this week end.
