Diggin’ In The Crates crew are back in the studio, their own studio at that, and the result is their first new album in 15 years. 15 tracks deep, this album features lyrics and production by all members of the crew, including a few new affiliates. Highlights include a return to the microphone by Lord Finesse on the banger “Rock Shyt”, Fat Joe returning to this legendary Bronx crew and DJ Premier production on “Connect 3”. This album was designed to be the first of many new releases coming out of their new headquarters and label, DITC Studios.

“One of the stand out tracks from First Divisions debut album, Overworked & Underpaid, was the DJ Premier produced, “This Iz Tha Time”.

This album has sat in the archives for nearly a decade, but is finally getting the release it deserves. El Da Sensei is Mean “Johnny” Barrows and K-Def is Ghettoman in this gritty New Jersey soundtrack. These two combine as ‘The Enforcers’ taking down anyone who gets in their way on a mission to give you what you need…quality hip hop! No soundtrack is complete without quality art and this doesn’t disappoint with an incredible cover illustration by Fred Whyte.
