Talib Kweli Is Recording An Album Produced By Diamond D. Take A Look. (Video)
Earlier this year, Diamond D released his latest album, The Diam Piece 2. On that LP, “The Zone” features Talib Kweli as well as Terror Van Pooh, and Niko Is. The Bronx, New York producer, MC, and DJ and the Brooklyn, New York MC, entrepreneur, and show host have some history together, including “The Truth” on Pharoahe Monch’s Internal Affairs, which also had Common as a guest. On the first Diam Piece volume, Kweli and Skyzoo guested on “Where’s The Love.”
This morning (November 25), Diamond confirmed with Ambrosia For Heads that he and Kweli are creating a collaborative project. Revealing that the two are already eight songs deep, the D.I.T.C. veteran shared a two-minute video that shows Talib listening to the playback of one of the tracks. It features Kweli using wordplay to big up Diggin’ In The Crates.
Previously, Diamond produced a full-length for Brand Nubian’s Sadat X, 2017’s The Sum Of A Man.
For The Diam Piece 2, Diamond has released videos, including “Maintaining” featuring Lord Tariq, Peter Gunz, and a-Kash, “I Can’t Lose” with Elzhi and Blake Moses, “Watch Yo Back” alongside Buckshot, General Steele, and Rockness. More recently, Diamond gave fans visuals for “Bodied,” featuring David Banner, Big Rec, and Edson Sean as well as “Hold Up,” featuring A-F-R-O, Dillon, and Twista.
Earlier this year, Diamond D spoke at length with AFH TV about The Diam Piece 2. He also recalled his years working with many Rawkus Records artists, including Kweli’s Black Star co-founder Mos Def. D also described early years around Madlib, who is producing Black Star’s first album in more than 20 years.
