  • Diamond District “First Step” | @Oddisee @yUthe78er @uptownxo


    Yeah man, I’m ready for this new album. Read more about the Diamond District upcoming collaborative project below.

    Produced by Oddisee. From the upcoming return of Diamond District “March On Washington” October 14th. Diamond District is yU, Oddisee, and Uptown XO.

    When Diamond District dropped In the Ruff on Mello Music Group in 2009, the gritty drums and grimy raps combined as elementally as hydrogen and oxygen. The D.C. Voltron of Oddisee, yU, and X.O. dusted off and revitalized a sound once consigned to the catacombs.

    Hailed as an instance classic, its impact reverberated throughout the underground and mainstream. The Washington D.C. City Paper called it the city’s best album in many years. During an era when lyricism was deemed too intellectual and samples too dated,Diamond District overturned conventional logic. They preserved the raw and made it righteous.

    A half-decade later, the holy trinity has returned with March on Washington. The truths remain timeless. Wisdom over rhythm. Slang turned into testament.

    Man, Rittz and Strange Music are not playing around with this album as they continue the onslaught of new material. This time Rittz teams up with Chicago spitter, Twista over a super smooth track by Lifted titled “Bounce.” Some pimp shit as Rittz says. The 2nd verse on here though, damn. Next To Nothing drops next month, so stay tuned.
