"Ruff Graft is an in-house collaborative album that was thought up, worked on, and completed for release in a space of five days in order for Millennium Jazz Music to pay homage to the late J Dilla during the days of his memorial.
We were so pleased with the end results and the support that the album has been receiving that we decided to make it that bit more memorable and press a small amount to disk to keep for ourselves and a limited few who would like to do the same.
The project features the majority of MJM's production team with beatstrumentals from the likes ofSmokedBeat, RickMal, Bones The Beat Head, Stay Classy, Gadget, and an intro and outro pieced together by DJ Jonny Jazz.
We hope you enjoy our little collection if you haven't already, and we encourage you to support the Yancey family and their efforts to keep James's legacy alive."
