Producer: J Dilla
Album: Ruff Draft
Label: Mummy Records/Stones Throw Records
Released on Dilla's lo-fi masterpiece Ruff Draft, “Reckless Driving” was among the more abstract and experimental of Dilla's catalog. “Reckless Driving” was three minutes of frantic production, creating a nervous energy that actually feels like you're driving drunk.
Recorded in just a week, Ruff Draft was a true rarity and collectors' item until its re-release on Stones Throw in 2007. One of the best examples of Dilla's thought process during this time, “Reckless Driving” can only be compared to his work on Common's Electric Circus.
