Dilla’s final project he created while still alive was DONUTS. He actually worked on it on his dying hospital bed. The 31 Track album consists of only instrumentals, spanning a vast array of eclectic samples. Each beat was seen as so ‘Fresh’ the tracks are known as Donuts. We tend to enjoy good music like good food, and everything looks better with sprinkles anyway.
