Throwback Thursday: Diamond D - The Hiatus

The Hiatus from '97's "Hatred, Passion, & Infidelities". Shit knocks. End of story. Skip to the :28 second mark for the song. The first 30 seconds is a snippet from another Diamond D joint called "The Projects". For the uninitiated, Diamond D was resident in-house producer for the D.I.T.C. (Diggin in the crates) crew, which played host to the likes Showbiz and A.G. (personal fave), Big L, Lord Finesse, Fat Joe and numerous other classic rap acts from the hey-day of New York hip hop.

I prefer Diamond D as a producer, but i gotta give credit when it's due, and D came correct on the verses here. Straight classic material from an industry savvy veteran.
