Well this is pretty cool. Dilla’s MPC and custom made Moog synthesizer will be added to the collection at the Smithsonian Institute’s soon to launch Museum Of African American History And Culture. Above you can watch an announcement about the exhibit by Dilla’s mom, Ma Dukes Yancey, and a representative from the Institute at the recent D.C. Loves Dilla event.
So we’ve got Nas at Harvard and Dilla in the Smithsonian, now we just need to add Kool Herc’s mug to Mount Rushmore.
