Sketches of a Man is the third album from Dwele. It was released on June 24, 2008 on his new record label with Koch Records after recording two albums for his previous label Virgin Records. The album is a tribute to Dwele's friend, deceased hip hop producer J Dilla and contains several references to songs he recorded or sampled.
