Product Details


Grammy award-winning, legendary producer Diamond D of the historical Diggin' In the Crates (D.I.T.C.) collective returns with a brand new, star-studded compilation titled "The Diam Piece". "The Diam Piece" features the likes of Pete Rock, Talib Kweli, Skyzoo, Rapsody, Hi-Tek, A.G., FAT JOE, Alchemist, Pharaohe Monch, Black Rob, ELZHI, Kurupt, Ras Kass, Scram Jones, Guilty Simpson, Tha Alkaholiks, Nottz and more. This is Diamond's first production compilation album and is produced entirely by himself, except for the bonus track "Superman" produced by DJ Scratch. The album is being released on Dymond Mine Records and is full of the classic productions for which he is best known.

"I wanted to make a classic sounding project with some of my favorite iconic and new MC's... I call it "Brand New Retro" in this age of keyboard synth beats and dumbed down lyricism." Says Diamond on the new album.

No watered-down Hip Hop, just the MPC 3000, The Yamaha Motif ES8, an intricate selection of samples and the mic skills.

Comment: Sept. 30th is my birthday. I ordered this the day it became official. What I heard has been making me want the 30th to get here even quicker. I can't wait to hear "Jose Feliciano". Thanks for this one D.

Comment: I've heard a few tracks and Diamond D has come back strong and smashed it as his previous album was garbage. I've also got my pre-order in!

Comment: From the samples posted online, this sounds like it could possibly end up being one of the illest records dropped this year. Definitely quality hip hop here produced by a legend and featuring more than a handful of dope MC's. Cannot fathom why anyone who appreciates "real" hip hop would pass up on this. A definite cop.

Comment: Absolute honesty is brutal it might kill other's soul momentum and maybe their dignity. Only say what is necessary enough for positive development. This ish is dope.

Comment: @ "Looks like an attempt to gain commercial fans" Did you actually read the line up son? It gets no more underground than this!

Comment: I hope he sticks to the production because that's his strong point, he was decent on the mic in the 90s but that last album in 2008 was not good.

Comment: Hey boob, I mean Bob - Diamond D is also 100x's doper than you will ever be. What have you done to advance hip hop? Rather, what have you done to pioneer any cultural movement? Sorry, keyboard gangsterism doesn't count.
