Questlove is set to executive produce a new documentary about the legendary J Dilla.The new film, titled Dilla Time, will see the Roots drummer working alongside the influential late artist’s estate for a project described as “part biography, part musicology, and part musical meditation”.Questlove said: “Explaining musical genius is my mission.

To be able to tell the world about the musician that had the most influence on me is a dream come true. “Not just on me, but on an entire generation of musicians that everyone knows and loves.

J Dilla was our teacher. And what he taught us was how to feel rhythm in a way we had never felt before. I’m so honoured to be a part of bringing his story to the world through this documentary.”Dilla’s estate added: “The estate of James Dewitt Yancey, and its wholly-owned production entity, Pay Jay Productions, Inc., which benefits J Dilla’s two children, his younger brother, and his mother, is proud to give its blessing to an amazing project created by discerning and talented filmmakers who knew J Dilla.

We trust the judgment of Ahmir, Joseph, Dan, and Scenario to elevate Dilla’s life, music, and legacy to their rightful place in the canon of music’s great innovators; and their film is the only documentary project we have endorsed.”A post shared by Questlove (@questlove)Another forthcoming project from Questlove is a documentary about Sly Stone, which will follow “the story of the influential artist, king of funk, and fashion icon Sly Stone, a musician who was breaking all the rules at a time when doing so was extremely challenging, even dangerous.
