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. For more background on this album and Dilla himself check out the wonderful video below: J Dilla: Ruff Draft Tribute video from the Ruff Draft release/tribute party in Toronto 2007 featuring interviews with Frank-N-Dank and J.Rocc.
