Originally released in small quantities on Mummy Records in 2003 as a vinyl-only EP and posthumously produced for reissued by Egon for Stones Throw in 2007, J. Dilla's Ruff Draft was a bold declaration of independence from an artist 10 years into his career – an artist still cloaked in rookie hunger and ambition despite a operating at the peak of both his creative and technical talents. Though the EP would go on to attain legendary status following Dilla's passing in 2006, the original edition of the album was marred by poor sound, resulting from lackluster vinyl mastering. The 2007 reissue was produced during a period when Dilla's original mixes were thought to be lost, and the album was remixed by engineers Dave Cooley and Kelly Hibbert from the original multi-tracks. In the course of preparing the release of Dilla's long thought lost solo debut, issued in 2016 as The Diary, Cooley uncovered Dilla's original mixes for Ruff Draft which are now available in this special instrumental edition.
