J Dilla Inspired Resin/Vinyl Custom Toy Release by Illustrator Patrick Wong



Canadian illustrator Patrick Wong is set to release his hand-crafted designer toy commemorating the late hip hop producer/emcee J-Dilla September 16th, 2014. The extremely limited edition part-resin / part-vinyl Madl measures 7 inches high and available to only 10 pieces worldwide with one original sculpt.



The release is based on the legendary Detroit producer/emcee of Slum Village who had produced a series of memorable tracks for artists like A Tribe Called Quest, Common, Busta Rhymes, Mos Def among others before dying at the age of 32.



The 7 inch J Dilla aka Jay Dee designer toy comes with an accessory mini record crate featuring a Bobby Caldwell LP. Caldwell's "Open Your Eyes" from this album was sampled by J Dilla and eventually lead to a Grammy nomination in 2001 for Common's "The Light".



9 of the 10 numbered pieces will be available to order at Patrick's webshop on Tuesday, September 16th, 2014 at 9:00AM PST or 12:00 PM Eastern. Each are priced at $150 plus trackable shipping.

The original sculpt/custom toy (based on a 5" MadL platform toy) will be exhibited at the Vinyl Thoughts 5 art show September 25th, 2014 at The Quixotic World in Deep Ellum - Dallas, Texas.
