Founded in 2006 by Maureen Yancey, mother of world-renowned hip-hop producer James Yancey aka J Dilla. The Foundation was formed to keep J Dilla’ss legacy alive and powerful, through partnerships, events, concerts, and fundraisers. The Foundation serves the dual responsibility to continue lupus research and provide quality arts training to our young people.
The J Dilla Foundation’s mission is to raise funds for lupus research and to provide training and support for underprivileged children who aspire to enhance their creative talents primarily in music. The Foundation is here to encourage health awareness and freedom of expression to the youth through music.
