Dilla Fest Detroit feat. Busta Rhymes, Frank N Dank feat. Illa J & Hosted by Ma Dukes

@ Russell Industrial Center



Further reinforcing the legacy of hip hop pioneer J Dilla, Dilla Fest honors his legacy with stops around the country. On Friday November 4, MeanRed welcomes Dilla Fest to Detroit, where Busta Rhymes, Frank N Dank feat. Illa J and Dez Andrés take to the stage in honor of the Motor City legend. 


Honoring the man who brought us Slum Village, The Pharcyde, Soulquarians, and much more, Busta Rhymes headlines. Needing no introduction, hip-hop legend in his own right, Busta Rhymes, has been at the top of the rap game since the early 90s. His countless iconic tracks have graced speakers and systems the world over. And, on the occasion of Dilla Fest, unanimously considered one of rap’s premiere performers. 


Next up, frequent J Dilla collaborators and hometown heroes, Frank N’ Dank, who will be joined by another local legend, and J Dilla’s younger sibling, Illa J. Having collaborated with J Dilla through much of their respective careers, Frank N’ Dank featuring Illa J are the perfect selections to honor the man at home. Finally, one of Detroit’s most respected DJs and artists will be rounding things out, Dez Andrés.


Dilla Fest in Detroit is produced by MeanRed Productions and Fusicology, two companies that pride themselves as independent woman led music companies.
