Since Dilla passed, the week in which he celebrated his birthday (February 7th) and breathed his last breath (February 10th) marks the international J. Dilla week in hip-hop circles. His influence and talent are hard to overstate, and with last weeks slew of James Yancey-related posts from all over the world, we figured the cream of the crop merits an interruption of our regular Cuban Linx schedule for this special edition. Thank you Jay Dee.

1982 was when Jaap van der Doelen aka J.Monkey shot his way out his mom dukes. A mere two years later he was already battling Big Brother and The Illuminati. Whenever he has time to spare from those efforts he writes (about music, mostly), hosts a radio show and designs graphics for a living. He lives in The Netherlands where he continues to be winning.
