Diamond & The Psychotic Neurotics - Stunts, Blunts & Hip Hop [2LP] ( (180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl, hard-to-find classic hip hop album, originally only out on promo, now finally available again, import)
The Hip Hop producer Diamond D debuted in 1992 with his album Stunts, Blunts and Hip Hop. It became an underground masterpiece with the vibe of the 90's studio ambience. With experiences of his later partners Big L and Fat Joe he created his New York sound. A huge part of the songs is recorded with the help of his crew the Psychotic Neurotics. The beats of the song ''Best Kept Secret'' sets the tone for the massive rhyming of Diamond D. The reason that everything sounds just as it should be is the fantastic production of the songs. ''Sally Got a One Track Mind'' is another classic tune by the formation and one of the highlights of the album.
Joseph Kirkland, better known by his stage name Diamond D, started working in the music industry by the end of the 80s and produced music for lots of artists, like Lord Finesse, Fugees, Outkast and ADOR. During the years he also released solo albums, the latest dates from 2014.
