Top Ten Hip-Hop Albums Chart [Video Version]


1: J Dilla Dilla's Mix The Instrumentals LP/vinyl also on CD (PayDay)

In the number slot of this new Top 20 hip-hop album releases chart (video version), that spans album releases from the several weeks, is both the CD and vinyl versions of the late J Dilla's album Ruff Draft: Dilla's Mix / aka Dilla's Mix The Instrumentals LP/vinyl also on CD (PayDay). The vinyl version arrived into Amoeba on Friday (June 8th) following the 2CD version that dropped a few weeks previously.  Over an hour in length the album is the latest reissue version of Dilla’s album that was originally released back in 2003 as a ten track EP (reportedly recorded within a week). Then four years later following his tragic death, it was reissued as a full length expanded 2CD remastered album as the 2007 release via Stones Throw that most are familiar with.
