The Influence of Donuts on American Music

Say, do you like imaginative loops and beats? Then why not try DONUTS, a CD by J Dilla? I don't know why I haven't mentioned it before, given the concerns of the "blog." DONUTS comes with a "good time" guarantee from me and Barry B. Barry B. says DONUTS is the greatest hip hop he's heard in ten years, and he's an "old school" expert. J Dilla represents one of the few times I've introduced Barry B. to an artist of any kind. Usually Barry's the introducer! He introduced me to the majestic sounds of OP8, for example. OP8 made only one CD, and that CD has a picture of a donut on the cover. Coincidence? This has been one in a series of in-depth articles about donuts and music.
