Thought Mello Music Group weren’t giving away goodies? Think again. A week after re-releasing Oddisee’s Mental Liberation for free, the label comes back this week with the instrumental LP of Diamond District‘s In The Ruff. Considering I had a clean copy of this LP a couple of years ago and still wear it out in the iPod on a given day, it’s a must have for fans of the group as well as those pesky aspiring rappers who want to take command of some of the production.

For example, “Make It Clear” is blaxpoitation meets 80s hip-hop with blaring riffs and a breakbeat only a true b-bopper would love. Yes, the District were clearly given plenty of heat from Odd, Kev Brown, Dunc of DTMD & Slimkat78 and now can be yours, for a limited time only.
