So here we are back at it again with the third annual edition of Celebrating DILLA Everywhere, and this time around we’re going to try our best to bring you all the DILLA-esque tribute parties in just this one post! I don’t want to go on-and-on-and-on-and-on about how inspirational Mr. Yancey is; you guys already know, which is obviously why you’re here! So, with that being said, let’s get right into it, and click the darker red links for the details on the flyer!
