A GoFundMe campaign is online and is led by J Dilla’s uncle Herman Hayes in an effort to save Dilla’s Delights, a donut shop named after the late Hip-Hop producer.

“The cost of transporting product, insurance, rent, and permits for both retail and production locations has taken a toll on our ability to eke out a profit,” the page reads. “We are in negotiations with properties for a larger space to produce and sell our donuts and merchandise with room for seating and a museum.

“One potential site comes with enormous historic magnitude. We hope to acquire grants, partners, and/or investors to present a Dilla’s Delights that truly defines a historical landmark and Detroit tourist attraction.”

The page details Hayes struggle with cancer resulting in the shop being shut down for nearly a month. The goal of $15,000 was to repair equipment, vendor contracts and more. As of writing, the fundraiser has surpassed the goal with $16,255 raised. You can still contribute here.
