Jedi Mind Tricks sophomore album, Violent By Design, sold 50,000 copies in its first week of release many years ago in the early 2000’s. It never reached billboard success, but that’s not bad considering the album contains lines of killing the pope & committing acts of violence in the name of the Qur’an.
The first week of sales must’ve been the apex for the albums release since what I have here is the original copy released by Superegular Records, which is some what rare since I see prices ranging from $20-$30 on Discogs and Amazon.
This predates the deluxe rerelease of the Babygrande Version which contains an extra track featuring Sean Price on it (Rip), and as well as a bonus DVD which held footage for the Visions of Gandhi tour along with the video for “I Who Have Nothing.”
Easily one of my favorite albums, I gotta say I’m pretty stoked I got this copy for only $11. Part of me wishes I got the rerelease since it has the Heavenly Divine Remix (which was better than the base version) & Ensemble, but at the same time I got my hands on something that’s normally more inflated in price. The rerelease is also a little pricy from what I’ve seen, so I saved a few bucks, which is a double win for me anyways.
