Label: Stones Throw

Danny Brown: "Donuts is the first instrumental album that speaks to me. A lot of them are just beats. J Dilla was really talking to you through his beats. He was able to figure that out and repeat that. It just opened up a whole new world with that album. He was on some Charlie Chaplin shit. He made a silent movie. The beats are telling the story. That alone lets you know he was one of the greatest producers to ever live."
