Hey Mama…


If you have not heard, the late great J. Dilla’s mother, Maureen “Ma Dukes” Yancey, is battling Lupus, the same disease that took the life of her son in 2006.  To help raise money for Ma Dukes, artist Parra and J. Dilla’s former record label, Stones Throw, put together a t-shirt, utilizing trademark Parra style writing and colors.  This tee can be purchase on the Stones Throw website and the article on Ma Dukes condition and financial challenges are featured in the latest edition of Vibe and can be viewed here.
