Diamond D The Huge Hefner Chronicles 2008

New LP from Diamond D. He was part of DITC back in the days. Worth checking out. Brought by C4, enjoy this.

Legendary Producer/MC/DJ Diamond D, constituent of the seminal collective D.I.T.C. (also included Fat Joe, Big L. & more), has signed a multi-album deal with renowned indie Babygrande Records. His inaugural release with the label will be October 14th’s “The Huge Hefner Chronicles,” Diamond’s third official release and first offering in 3+ years. Over the years, aside from independently releasing his subsequent two LP’s, Diamond has remained an active participant behind the boards, having contributed his trademark style to some of the most iconic records in hip-hop history including The Fugees’ “The Score,” A Tribe Called Quest’s “The Low End Theory,” as well as releases by Mos Def, Pharoahe Monch & many more.

With “The Huge Hefner Chronicles,” Diamond returns to form, with a record that recalls the nostalgic stylings of the “golden age,” while maintaining a contemporary sensibility accessible to the modern day hip-hop head. This duality of form is on full display on the first single from the forthcoming LP, entitled “D-I-A-M-O-N-D.” A vicious head-nodder, the track instantly explodes into a “golden-age” inflected beat, produced by none other than the infamous beat maestro Nottz (Notorious B.I.G., Busta Rhymes, Method Man, Scarface, J Dilla, Snoop Dogg & more). Diamond answers with the lyrical fluidity that only a vet of his stature can offer. “D-I-A-M-O-N-D” is the feel-good back-to-school jam that hits the sweet spot for both purists and modern day heads alike.
