Daddy was a Rolling Stone....

You ask me, who are the greats. I reply, Hendrix, Armstrong, Simone.

You ask me, who are my greats. I reply, Tek and Dilla

My greats are behind the music. Sometimes it's best to be heard and not seen.

You name any rapper that has come out the mid-west, both Dilla and Hi-Tek have put a spell on their beat.

Even better, you name any conscious rapper to hit the scene, sure enough, Dilla and Tek have laid down tracks for them.

Hip-hop would not be what it is without them.

Jonell, Little Brother, Black Star, Blacklicious, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Slum Village, Common, Q-Tip, The Roots, Madlib, Badu, The Pharcyde, Raphael Saadiq, just to name a few.
