Often under appreciated but never forgotten, Diamond D is easily one of the greatest forces of the underground Hip-Hop scene. Whether you mess with his work from D.I.T.C or still bump Stunts, Blunts, & Hip Hop on the regular, D is just as ambitious today, even with his OG status. Going for a remix that’s reminiscent of The East Flatbush Project’s “Tried By 12,” his take on the Nitty Scott, MC featured “Boyz II Men” taken from Blu & Nottz’ 2013 released Gods In The Spirit EP, truly bears the Diggin’ in the Crates Crew stamp of approval. Where the original version relied on triumphant horns, courtesy of Nottz, D ventures into a completely different direction, going for a minimalistic instrumental that still packs enough punch to cause a dizzy spell for any true head. Diamond D’s remix of “Boyz II Men” is featured on the iTunes Deluxe Edition of Coalmine Records’ ten year anniversary compilation, Unearthed, as well as the CD and vinyl edition of Gods In The Spirit, both of which are now available. Stay tuned for the complete full length of Blu & Nottz’ collaborative efforts, with their forthcoming anthology, Gods In The Spirit, Titans In The Flesh.
