IN THE STORE:
J DILLA - RUFF DRAFT BEATS

1/LP with chip board cover.

Stones Throw has reissued J Dilla's Ruff Draft Instrumentals with a long-overdue LP cover.

These self-produced tracks make up one of the late J Dilla's least known works during his lifetime. Released on vinyl only in February 2003, Ruff Draft EP was elusive and virtually unknown to the casual Dilla fan until Stones Throw's reissue in 2007. Recorded in the wake of a failed deal with major label MCA, Dilla returned to solo recordings as a fiercely independent artist with Ruff Draft.  

Tracks on this single vinyl disc were taken from J Dilla's original master tapes, mixed and remastered by Dave Cooley & Kelly Hibbert.
