Also check out the L.A Weeks interview with J Dilla's Mother, Ms. Maureen Yancey here. While many people are making serious dough off of Dilla's legacy, Ma Dukes struggles to find her way through the legal limbo land and the jackals of the music industry. Check out this link to read more on this. Maureen “Ma Dukes” Yancey, the mother of the late James “J Dilla” Yancey, is currently battling the same disease that took her son’s life. To support Ma Dukes, Parra came up with this tee below, which will be available on select sites in February. Proceeds from this tee goes to Ma Dukes.
