Hip hop artist J Dilla's legacy continues to shine with the new video to be released for 'shining'' Album Track ''Won''t Do'' exclusively on imeem (www.imeem.com)

As word continues to spread on the recent release of hip hop’s J Dilla's final work ''The Shining'', a steady chorus of praise is making itself heard. From major magazine features and newspapers nationally to NPR, television and more, this final work by one of Hip Hop's most innovative creative forces continues to be held up as proof that J Dilla was one of the most significant Hip Hop artists in recent memory.

The release will now see further play with a new video currently in post production for the track ''Won''t Do''. The video is directed by Mazik Saevitz (of Blood of Abraham fame) and will feature Dilla's brother John Yancey as well as cameos from hip hop and rap notables Common, Will.I.AM, Black Thought, Talib Kweli, Karriem Riggins and others. Styling for the video was done by Las Vegas based Fruition (www.fruitionlv.com). Expect a surreal CG driven visual journey that will celebrate Dilla’s legacy while staying true to ‘Won’t Do’ as a song.

The video will premier on 12/4/06 and will be exclusively available on imeem http://jdilla.imeem.com for 2 weeks following the premier. 2 weeks leading up to the premier exclusive stills and behind the scenes footage will be available on imeem. imeem is a next-generation online network for social media, bringing people together through shared creative passions by combining social networking with innovative digital media features and instant messaging. imeem allows people to upload user-created video, audio, photos, and blogs, attracting an independent and diverse community of artists, bands, filmmakers, photographers, DJs, video nuts and fans.
