Violent By Design is the seminal underground hip-hop album by Jedi Mind Tricks, originally released in 2000. This reissue has been digitally remastered and is now presented in the original Babygrande Records album jacket on limited edition red colored double LP.

An out-of-print gem for the past several years, this vinyl version of Jedi’s breakthrough album will thrill die-hard enthusiasts and collectors alike, while allowing Jedi’s rapidly expanding fan base to discover this definitive version of the underground classic. To date, the most acclaimed aspect of the album has been the dark, atmospheric production work by Stoupe the Enemy of Mankind. Featuring a variety of vague samples, largely taken from movie scores and various tracks from Latin artists, matched with random vocals taken from numerous films and selections of poems by British poet Wilfred Owen, Stoupe's work on Violent by Design helped to establish him as one of underground hip hop's preeminent producers.
