When E-Major hit me up to let me know he and Sean Armstrong (DJ Face) were dropping a Dilla tribute EP, I was a little worried. Since his passing, there have been a number of tributes honoring one of HipHop's biggest and brightest luminaries; many of them probably should have been left as a thought as the product didn't deliver.
Taking a small handful of Dilla's beats and applying the K.I.S.S. method, Armstrong and Major deliver a tribute that Dilla fans everywhere can respect and appreciate. Instead of making a series of redundant "Dilla is the best" and "Dilla we miss you" songs, Louder! features the two MCs doing what they do best- dropping dope rhymes over dope beats. It just so happens to be beats from the legend known as J Dilla.
We put this project together in the name of J Dilla because we believe that he was truly one the best artists to ever work in Hip Hop. Dilla has touched many lives with his music and continues to in his absence. He’s inspired a whole generation of musicians and this is our way of honoring him ... through music.Under Sound Music presents Sean Armstrong & E-Major- Louder! (A Tribute to J Dilla)
