First two parts of Stussy's three part tie-in documentary with Stones Throw and the Dilla Estate (hopefully the Dilla Estate as run by Ma Dukes and Dilla's family).

As interesting as these chunks of documentary are, there's next to no mention of Tribe Called Quest, no mention of Stakes Is High, no interview with anyone from SV, nothing about 1st Down, nothing about Pharcyde, no input from Busta, no input from Common or any of the Soulquarians, and so on and so on. I guess Stones Throw is only interested in Stones Throw, huh.

Also interesting is that Peanut Butter Wolf quite openly jokes about how he put out a Dilla bootleg on vinyl (that hadn't been cleared) for a mixtape he was working on (also not cleared)... when Stones Throw shuts down ANY website that has anything from Stone's Throw on it.

For MY money, here's a much better summary of his career from DJ Judge (originally broadcast on Radio 1190 KVCU Boulder). Massive props man.
