J Dilla & Madlib

Both released in the same year, these show some of Dilla and Madlibs finest work!

Jay Dee Aka J Dilla - Donuts

Donuts is an instrumental hip hop album by producer J Dilla. Donuts was released on February 7, 2006, his 32nd birthday, and only three days before his death. This album was a major breakthrough for this underground artist, in which his unique style could be shown and many see as having subtle meanings in many of its tracks and their names (for example, the titling of "Don't Cry" and "Bye" in light of Dilla's passing afterwards). On Metacritic, Donuts received "universal acclaim" from critics based on an aggregate score of 84/100 from fifteen reviews.

Rating 9/10

J Dilla - Workinonit

The Beat Konducta Vol. 1-2 : Movie Scenes

Beat Konducta Vol 1-2: Movie Scenes is an instrumental album by Madlib, an American hip hop musician signed to Stones Throw Records. The album, entirely produced by Madlib under the alias of the Beat Konducta, is meant to be a soundtrack to a nonexistent movie of Madlib's imagination. This album boasts an extensive use of 1970s soul samples, but there are also hints of rock, funk, and house.

Rating 8/10

Madlib - Outerlimit (Space Ho)
