J Dilla-Themed Dilla's Delights Donut Shop Among Latest COVID-19 Casualties: 'We're Homeless'

Owner Herman Hayes promises, "We’re definitely gonna keep donuts alive, Dilla’s legacy alive … we gonna come back bigger, better and just be creative."

Detroit, MI – Dilla’s Delights Donut Shop, owned by J Dilla’s uncle Herman Hayes, is closing its doors. During an extensive Instagram Live session on Sunday (January 10), Hayes revealed he could no longer helm the Detroit-based location on John R Road. He also noted the store has actually been closed since March 2020.

“It’s official — the donut shop is closed in that location,” he said, rocking a custom Phife Forever t-shirt. “We don’t quite know which direction we’re gonna go in and where we’re gonna be, but we’re working on some things. That location at 242 John R Road is no longer open and we will not open back up at 242 John R Road and we are looking for a home. We’re homeless. We lookin’ for a home and the possibilities are out there. Let’s put it that way. We may want to open up somewhere else. I don’t know. We gotta figure it out.”.centered-ad {
