Released on vinyl only in February 2003, this much sought-after release was elusive and virtually unknown to the casual J Dilla fan until Stones Throw reissued the album in 2007. Recorded in the wake of a failed deal with major label, Dilla returned to solo recordings as a fiercely independent artist with Ruff Draft.

This edition includes detailed liner notes by Ronnie Reese discussing Dilla's career in 2002 when Ruff Draft was recorded. Tracks on this disc were taken from J Dilla's original master tapes, where additional previously-unreleased tracks 'Wild' and 'Take Notice' were also discovered.

Heavyweight double vinyl produced by Stones Throw. Chipboard cover sleeve designed by Jeff Jank.
