[J Dilla] was the most shocking person to me at the time. He’s really the truth. He was the Michael Jordan of beat-making. If we look at Primo and Pete [Rock] as the Larry Bird and Magic Johnson, he was the one that took what the people did before him and put all these new twists on it and took it to a whole new level.
