Diamond D – The Unkut Interview

1314219211-diamondd

Growing up in Forest Projects in the South Bronx, DJ Diamond D embarked on a career as a local DJ before teaming-up with childhood friend Master Rob to form the Ultimate Force crew and release the “I’m Not Playing” single on Strong City. Following on from yesterdays detailed breakdown of his first solo album, we discussed his formative years as a music fan, his loyalty to those he grew-up with and some of his lesser known musical contributions beyond his work with the D.I.T.C. crew.

Robbie: How old were you when you first deejayed publicly?

Diamond D: First time I deejayed in public I was around 13, 14 in my projects at the jams outside. There were two DJ’s in my neighborhood – DJ Supreme and DJ Hutch. They would come outside and basically provide the soundtrack to our lives, through hip-hop. At some point, from me pestering them, they let me get on their set. To me that was the biggest deal, to be able to get on the turntables in your projects and feel the love of the people that were in the projects, basically.

This new Diamond D beat is serious. I thought that the rapper might have been that Big Red kid he used to work with but it’s a different dude.

Even though this P Brothers song dropped in 2006, it’s still great enough to warrant a video eight years later. Also note that Eddie Cheeba and Trey Bag have changed their name back from Boss Money Gangsters to Money Boss Inc. and have removed the outro and all references to Nottingham in this version.

Doo Wop brings a new party tape to get dressed-up as Macklemore or your favorite Pokemon to. Might I suggest attending any festivities as Travis Bickell and Betsy on that ill-fated first date steez?

Boogie Down Productions – Duck Down [Alternative Version]

bdp duck down still

More BDP action with this vinyl rip from Rob Pursey of Southern Hospitality. Apparently the UK pressing of the “Duck Down” 12″ features an alternative version of the Pal Joey produced track, despite being labeled as the “LP Version”. Sporting a looser deliver from KRS, an extra bassline and an extra verse going at X-Clan, which would later end-up as part of “Build and Destroy”, from the same LP. Was there some kind of fuck up and an early demo version of “Duck Down” was pressed up for the British audience, or did the Jive UK office just prefer this version? Regardless, it’s more greatness from the third best BDP album, and therefore essential listening.



KRS-One – Criminal Minded Practice Sessions

krs-kenny

Holy shit…Kenny Parker finally got around to ripping some of those old tapes of KRS-One rapping over breakbeats courtesy of DJ Scott La Rock and Kool DJ Red Alert , as he told us about back in 2006. While there was no sign of the one with the dog barking over Kris’ verse, there’s an incredible ‘La Di Da Di’ style track which I’ve never heard before that will make your year. Shouts out to the Frozen Files crew over at East Village Radio for making this happen.
