Diamond District - In The Rough

In The Ruff is the highly anticipated debut album from new DC hip hop group “The Diamond District”, created by state veterans Oddisee, X.O. & YU. In The Ruff is the answer for any lover of hip hop who asks the question – “Where did that grimy East coast sound go?”

The group was founded by rapper/ producer Oddisee, who has a long list of production & collaboration credits with the likes of Freeway, Talib Kweli, Siagon, Little Brother, Trek Life, Charles Hamilton, Jazzy Jeff, Buck Shot, Royce the 5′9”, Nikki jean, Muhsinah, J-live, Lil Fame of MOP, Skyzoo and many more. Oddisee’s soulful, haunting samples over bass-heavy beat breaks create the perfect instrumentals for him, XO & YU to match with their street savvy, politically conscious lyrics.

“The ware wolves wear wool suits, be ware of them…”

In The Ruff is a raw mid-90’s Boom-Bap themed album for the DC state of mind, destined to appeal to all lovers of hip hop’s golden era, managing to travel back in time and push the boundaries of DC Hip-Hop simultaneously

Diggaz Love Lab Offs pt4 - 'The Barons Artillery'

Gadge hosted a Lab Off for producers @ http://diggazlove.blogspot.com/ & http://www.ukhhf.co.uk/

Firstly, big up to Baron for providing us the five tracks to use. I'm still not being very creative production wise at the moment, but I found these a real good listen in general. As usual we could have taken parts from one sample, combined the five, as well as use additional sounds from vst's, synths and even other samples. But the main sample had to have came from at least one of the tracks provided.

Deadline: was Saturday 24th October 2009
