Robert Glasper & Zynzelay ‘Shine’ For Dilla

Let's all agree that Robert Glasper is awesome. Okay? Great. Now add vocalist Zynzelay to the mix with her self-penned verses inspired by a Gilles Peterson-J Dilla interview and you get "Dilla*Shine." As you can imagine, it's definitely a morose track, but in their hands, becomes a gentle ode to a gentle musical giant.
