Welcome 2 Detroit is the debut studio album by album by Detroit, Michagan hip hop recording artist J Dilla, released on February 27, 2001. The album followed the group's critically acclaimed Fantastic, Vol. 2, and kicked off BBE's "Beat Generation" series (producer-driven albums).
 
Welcome 2 Detroit bears the name "Jay Dee" as well as "J Dilla", and marks the first time Dilla (who until that point was still known as Jay Dee) officially used the name J Dilla.
 
Welcome 2 Detroit is a showcase of the talent from J Dilla's hometown, introducing a pre-Slum Village Elzhi on the song "Come Get It", and making room for his longtime 1st Down partner Phat Kat on the appropriately titled "Featuring Phat Kat".
 
The album sound ranges from grimy hardcore hip hop ("Pause") to electronic psychedelia ("B.B.E."). The track "Rico Suave Bossa Nova" is inspired by Brazilian music group Azymuth. As Dilla mentions in the extensive liner notes:
 
I fell in love with Brazilian music the day I listened to a Sérgio Mendes album. We used to have jam sessions in the studio after work was done, (and) one day my mans Karriem Riggins came through. I asked him for "Bossa nova". He gave me exactly what I needed.
 
J Dilla covers Donald Byrd's "Think Twice", singing the lead vocals.
 
On "African Rhythms", J Dilla covers the Afro beat group Plunky & the Oneness of Juju's song of the same name, replaying all the instruments as well as mimicking the spoken introduction.
 
On the albums outro "One", J Dilla takes a moment to thank all who have helped him in the Hip-Hop industry, including Slum Village, Q-Tip and De La Soul. The Pop band 'N Sync is also mentioned. An instrumental version of the album was released on August 23, 2005.

Ice Cube has changed the sound of Hip-Hop, the face of Hollywood, and now he aims to rearrange the retirement age in professional basketball. Cube, a former high school athlete who has been a devoted sports fan to the Oakland Raiders, Los Angeles Lakers, and other pro franchises, is launching a league. According to Yahoo! Sports’ The Vertical, Cube’s league will be called BIG3 and will play in the summer, presumably after the NBA Finals. There will be eight teams, each with five players. These games will replicate, in structure, many pick-up games of hoops, with three-on-three using just half the court. The news broke after NBA Players Association Executive Director Roger Mason stepped down. In conjunction with his exit, Mason (who played in the NBA between 2002 and 2014) announced he would be the president and commissioner of the new venture. Sir Jinx Speaks About Keeping The Production On Ice Cube’s Death Certificate True To The Game So far Cube has brought in some powerful names committed to BIG3. Nine-time NBA all-star and 2006 champion Gary Payton is on board, as well as six time all-star Jermaine O’Neal. 2013 champ Rashard Lewis and 2003 champion Stephen Jackson are signed on. Kenyon Martin, as well as former Nets teammate Jason Williams (who won a ‘chip in 2006) complete the six stars said to be on board. “I thought of this concept as a fan who got sick of seeing his heroes retire and not play anymore,” said Cube to The Vertical. “A lot of these guys can still play once they retire – just not the back-to-backs or four games in five nights. I started to look at three-on-three basketball and wondered, ‘Why isn’t this played on a pro level?’ It’s the most normal form of basketball. And from there it was like, ‘Yo, why don’t we make this happen?’” In music, Ice Cube (now 47) has helped challenge ageism. Now, the N.W.A. and Westside Connection member hopes to do the same in hoops. “Game, Blouses:” The Real Story Behind Dave Chappelle’s Prince Basketball Skit Also, with Gary Payton playing hoops again, one of the players from that famed Lakers vs. Supersonics game in Cube’s “It Was A Good Day” is still making moves on the court.
