I heard about this from Mayer Hawthorne on the Food Is New Rock podcast.
The Detroit News reports that J Dilla’s uncle, Herman Hayes, plans to pay tribute to the beloved producer with a new coffee-and-doughnut shop called Dilla’s Delights. Hayes, a former baker, hopes to open the business sometime in October or November. When he does start serving his nephew’s favorite snack, Hayes will be working out of an 800-square-foot-space in the ground floor of the Ashley, a luxury apartment building that was previously the Milner Hotel, where Dilla lived briefly as a toddler.
