One of my favorite hip-hop groups Diamond District (Oddisee, Y.U. and X.O.) just came off of their first (but definately not last) European tour which also featured Trek Life and DJ Quartermaine. Oddisee (who’s also a gifted photographer) captured flix and pics of them on the road. To celebrate their first tour, we’re posting some of the footage from the tour!
I listen to “In the Ruff” every other day, no B.S. I even listen to the clean verison at work so as not to offend the coworkers, lol.
Please support them, because they make real hip hop music. Download Diamond District on iTunes.
I’d love to see a collabo w/ them and an ill female rapper like Boog Brown. That would make my life 🙂 Anywho enjoy the vids!
There has only been one album that has been getting constant rotation in my IPOD and that’s Diamond District’s “In The Ruff.” “In the Ruff” reminds me of when I actually fell in love with hip hop. They took it back with the lyrics and the production. Download “In the Ruff” if you are a true hip hop head. “In The Ruff” has to go down as a classic from the DMV, in my opinion. Xo, Yu, and Oddisee raised the bar to another level.
My Favorite song from “In the Ruff”:

Wale+ Tabi Bonney+ X.O. and More- Rock the Vote @ 9:30 Club
Recap by Renee Woods
As we headed to the 9:30 Club for the Wale show Wednesday night, my chief concern was parking. It ended up not even being an issue; it only took me two minutes to find a spot but like ten minutes to actually park. Hey I’m a MD driver; my parallel parking ain’t the best. Walking to the club, UrbanSocialight and I met a cool white guy headed to the show too, so we ended up chatting it up with him. Headed toward the will call line, we spotted another CNB member Mark. Unlike the Bmore show last week, we actually had to stand in line since we didn’t have the hook up (shoutout to Jamar, thanks homie!).
We picked up our tickets but since we’re always “fashionably late” we missed Wordsmith and Phil Ade, who I heard were both hot, so please myspace them. Side Note: It’s worth mentioning that 9:30 Club events start and end on time.
