Chances are, you've heard RJD2's work without even knowing it, so prolific has his production been in the last few years. Since 2001 the instrumental hip-hop producer has been sending his beats out to the far ends of the music world, releasing tracks on Definitive Jux, Decon, and Chocolate Industries, to name a small fraction of the labels he's worked with. In the last year alone he's produced tracks for videogames, DVDs, Aceyalone, as well as his own Soul Position group.
For 2007 he's let his hair grow out and produced a new album titled The Third Hand. He'll be showing off both as he hits the road this spring, joined by L.A.-based MC Busdriver, whose RoadKillOvercoat album is due out at the end of the month on Anti.
The Third Hand is out March 6, 2007 on XL.
