James Dewitt Yancey (also known as J Dilla and Jay Dee) is one of the most prolific and influential producers in the history of hip-hop.

The timer behind his gravestone rubbing counts down to 70 years after Yancey's death, at which point his music will be free of copyright and enter the public domain.
