The Diggin’ In The Crates Crew has been impacting Hip-Hop for more than 25 years. The collective of Diamond D, Fat Joe, Showbiz, A.G., Lord Finesse, O.C., Buckwild and Big L launched with the release of Finesse’s 1990 Funky Technician album, and has not stopped since.

The members often assisted one another on songs, either by rapping, producing or both, but unlike today, when crew albums are common, they did not release an official D.I.T.C. album until nearly 20 years in, with 2008’s The Movement. As Heads may recall, however, neither Diamond nor Joe participated on that album, so the crew was not at full-strength. Eight years later, all that is about to change, as Diamond, Joe, Show, A.G., Finesse, O.C. and Buckwild prepare to release D.I.T.C. Studios.

At the top of the year, the crew began releasing crate burners weekly. Several weeks in, they confirmed that they had officially reunited and would be dropping a full compilation album. In March, they released “Rock Shyt,” one of their best collaborations in years. The track featured Finesse, Joe and Diamond going in over a hard-hitting guitar-driven beat.

Now, that track is the subject of D.I.T.C.’s first video release in years, and the first ever featuring this treacherous three. Each of Joe, Finesse and Diamond appear in the video, looking photoshop fresh and doing exactly what the song says: rockin’ shyt.
