Diamond District on the Rolling Stone's Hype Monitor

Rock & Roll Daily, Your non-stop music news source.

Hype Monitor: Diamond District

The Band: Diamond District
The Buzz: Longtime denizen of the underground Oddisee teams with MCs (and Scrabble proper-name points bonanzas) XO and YU for a record that documents the seamy underbelly of our nation’s capital, rapping about people in tight times pushed well past the breaking point.
Listen If: You don’t call it ” ’90s hip-hop,” you call it “real hip-hop.”
Key Track: The grim and grimy “Streets Won’t Let Me Chill,” where all three MCs take turns narrating a bleak day in the city over humid horns and a panicked vocal sample.
