A week from Saturday is the Chicago edition of the Alliance for Lupus Research Walk to Cure Lupus, which doesn't sound like much of a party or something that should go on a music blog. But lupus is the reason we don't still have J Dilla hanging around making magic out of a pile of records and an MPC, which in turn has made the world a less rad place. The J Dilla Project is honoring Jay Dee's memory by encouraging his fans to donate money or go all the way and set up a walkathon team in his name. If you own a "J Dilla Changed My Life" T-shirt you really have no good reason not to help.
