Diamond D featuring Masta Ace – “Ace Of Diamonds” (Video)

Brand new video from Diamond D’s incredibly dope album ‘Diam Piece’ that’s out now. There’s a lot of dope joints on the project & this collaboration video with Masta Ace is another one from that project. I’m glad to see Diamond is releasing videos from the project with all of the quality collaborations he’s done to make the ‘Diam Piece’ a success. Great title for this song which is an obvious play on words on both of their names. This project Directed & Edited by Varras Tower also features cameos from music industry veteran Dante Ross, Kid Capri, Atlanta based emcee BIGREC, Jamal from the rap group Illegal, 8ball of the legendary Memphis Tennessee group 8ball & MJG, & more.

Diamond D officially drops a brand new video for ‘Superman’ off of his ‘Diam Piece’ album that’s out now. DJ Scratch, who produced the track, also makes a cameo appearance in this joint shot in Atlanta & directed by my homies Nick Burnz & Amond Jackson. Don’t sleep on that ‘Diam Piece’ album because there’s quite a number of bangers we still rock out to on my radio show.

Diamond D – “It’s Magic” feat. Alchemist x Evidence (Video)

The official D.I.T.C. emcee, DJ, & producer Diamond D’s new album the ‘Diam Piece’ has been one of my favorites to have dropped in 2014. After dropping the new video ‘Only Way 2 Go’ featuring Pete Rock just a number of days ago, Diamond D takes it out to the West Coast for new visuals to ‘It’s Magic’ featuring the dual threat of  Alchemist & Evidence who are literally ‘laying it down’ in the streets of Los Angeles.

BIGREC – “Doomsday” (All Tracks Produced By Diamond D) [Album Stream]

artworks-000079936475-0fc3ey-t500x500

Where did this dude come from!?!? How does an emcee born in New Orleans, raised in Oklahoma, stomp through the Atlanta indie Hip-Hop circuit, link with the legendary producer Diamond D… who declares that

REC is part of the new school of emcees, but he still has that eternal Hip-Hop sound which made me gravitate toward him, and I don’t gravitate toward nothing I don’t believe in 100%.”

Dope…oh yeah back to the question… How does such an emcee as BIGREC come along to take the world stage just as Hip-Hop makes its full revolution (RHHIB); ready to receive him?

Well, who can know for certain? Do you question every blessing? Okay then. Why not spend that time enjoying this FREE stream of the album that officially launches Diamond D’s Dymond Mine Records label, “Doomsday.” Featuring the likes of R.A. the Rugged Man, Blake Moses and TH5PENTAGON – with a nod from the DJ Premier – you could go through the link below and cop a copy of the work. You know, to collect your own evidence and make your own case… that Real Hip-Hop Is Back. RHHIB!

Pharoahe Monch & Diamond D’s “Rap Life” Tops Snoop’s “Underground Heat” Weekly Countdown (Video)

Snoop has that banging GGN Network. We knew that, but this is a show of a whole other kind. No frills, no jokes, no industry bullsh!t. Underground Heat – a show that is all about the music! Snoop Dogg hosting; sharing his top 10 videos. The top 3 vids and a throwback vid of the week get full play, while snips of the rest are shown. Very dope format! And yes… You (or an emcee you know) can also submit your own videos via the website – www.theundergroundheat.com But come correct… the #1 video this episode is a BEAST! It’s that Pharoahe Monch feat. Diamond D – “Rap Life” we posted on here a bit ago.

Congrats, gentlemen! And respect to all the homies involved including Amond Jackson from Salem Psalms Library who co-directed the flick with Deacon the Villain.

Pharoahe Monch feat. Diamond D – “Rap Life” (Video)

Brand new video from Pharoahe Monch for the Diamond D produced banger “Rap Life”. I was fortunate to be able to see this video well before it was released thanks to my homie Amond Jackson from Salem Psalms Library who co-directed the flick with Deacon the Villain.  The video features a quite a number of noteworthy cameos including dope west coast producer Alchemist but what stands out to me are the number of talented FEMALE DJs, visual artists, emcees, producers who make cameos in the clip.  Visual artist & photographer Ree Swa is seen holding the Japanese sword in the video while critically respected female emcees such as Jean Grae, Boog Brown, &  Stahhr make ‘Rap Life’ appearances as well as my homegirl, model & true school hip hop head, Miss Serena AZ who’s seen holding the guns in the clip.  Be on the lookout for Diamond D’s upcoming project ‘The Diam Piece’ as well as Pharoahe Monch’s upcoming project “P.T.S.D” (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)” with the latter being out to tax you on April 15th.  Pharoahe Monch’s project may have very few features for the conceptually based project, however Diamond D’s background primarily as a producer should require him to have a lengthy guestlist that will include Fat Joe, Pete Rock, Talib Kweli, Elzhi, Smif-N-Wessun, Hi-Tek, Ras Kass, Kurupt, Camp Lo, & more.  Peep some behind-the-scenes photos from the video shoot & trailers to both Pharaohe Monch’s & Diamond D’s upcoming projects below….
