    Product Details


    In the annals of "from the vaults" Hip Hop legend, time will show that a 17-year delay in the release of the Ultimate Force's ridiculously dope debut, "I'm Not Playin", is an injustice of mammoth musical proportions. That sounds like a bunch of hype. It's not. Take one listen to "Another Hit", "Girls", "Revolution of the Mind", the stellar posse cut "Oh Shit" (featuring a teenaged Fat Joe, also heard here on "C'mon") and one of the best DJ tracks of all time, "Supreme Diamond D", and tell me that these wouldn't have blown up if they had hit, as originally planned, in 1990. We all know that the Ultimate Force's DJ and producer Diamond [then known as Diamond D] is one hell of a tracktitioner. His work on Lord Finesse's 1990 classic "Funky Technician" proved it, his 1992 debut "Stunts, Blunts & Hip-Hop" cemented it early on, and his track record ever since (ever heard of the Fugees? Busta Rhymes? DITC, anyone?) has shut down any doubters. Case closed. But one listen to this record will show you where his skills really started to shine. And not just as a producer, and definitely not as an MC (he didn't rhyme in the Ultimate Force). His DJ skills here, along with his now-legendary production muscle, are worth the price of admission alone. Imagine if the world had heard "Supreme Diamond D" - wherein the man born Joseph Kirkland runs through the entire alphabet, cutting phrases from A to Z - in 1990. - Brian Coleman (author of "Rakim Told Me", and the upcoming "Check The Technique: Liner Notes for Hip-Hop Junkies")
    'Special Edition Extended Play Double Disc' includes all album tracks as well as full instrumentals and a capellas for each song, thirty six total cuts, housed in a deluxe six-panel digipak with additional liner note booklet written by Brian Coleman, with input from Master Rob and Diamond D themselves.

    Comment: Who would have thought that it would take 17 years for us to actually get hold of this. Incredible. We all heard the rumor that there was a whole album recorded. But all we had was "I'm Not Playing".. This is sure shot after sure shot.... Dope Bronx golden era, Strong City in full effect! Cop it NOW!
