Nothing Like This. by Joey-Zero Nothing Like This. by Joey-Zero
I know, I owe a lot of work to a lot of different people, but I had to do this. I got inspired when I got my package in the mail... For those that don't know, I won a Stonesthrow package with all sorts of dope-ass dilla stuff. I also got the idea from a sort of request from a buddy.

I got the reference image from an old Waxpoetic mag cover.

Title from one of my more recently favorite Dilla tracks.

This would be a perfect tour poster. I wish I had it in a size half as high as my door. You earned my utmost respect. From details to format to the writing - great work!

Ooh. Hehe, well that's not recent at all. Guess I'm just slow. :clueless: But yeah. Terrible loss. He could've been a big hit if he... you know, were still around. :shrug:
