J Dilla – Crushin’ (Original Version)

Today’s stream is of the original version of “Crushin” produced by me. We have J Rocc to thank for this one. I was DJing with Houseshoes in San Fran with Fran Boogie and DJ Mr. E. We heard J Rocc was staying in the same hotel and went to holla at him. We were talking about Dilla rarities when he said that he liked that version of, “Crushin” I did. I was like what version!?! He played it and it split my melon! I did that beat for Dilla circa 2002 for his MCA project – I assumed he never used it when I didn’t hear anything. Turns out it was the original version that he later remixed himself for his then newly founded label, Mummy Records.
