Your Face or Your Kneecaps is the first release by hip-hop producer RJD2. It is a 39-track DJ mix composed mostly of obscure funk records from the 1970s and 1980s that are beat juggled to extend certain drum heavy parts of the songs. Layered on top of the music are also a few hip-hop a cappellas and vocal clips from the classic New York City hip-hop film Wild Style. Also included in the mix are a few original tracks produced by RJ, some of which are featured on his debut solo production LP Deadringer. At the end of the mix are 2 full length tracks produced by RJ exclusively for this album.
