33 1/3 Books is about to release a book based on J Dilla’s album, Donuts (by Jordan Ferguson). Consists of 130-pages, this book will not only give you a look at the creation of the album, but also J Dilla’s career, his influences, his music styles, and also the art of music itself. The book will be coming out on April 24th, and you can pre-order it now.

The jacket reads, “Drawing from philosophy, critical theory and musicology, as well as Dilla’s own musical catalog, Jordan Ferguson shows that the contradictory, irascible and confrontational music found on Donuts is as much a result of an artist’s declining health as it is an example of what scholars call ‘late style,’ placing the album in a musical tradition that stretches back centuries.”
