Stunts, Blunts, and Hip-Hop (2xLP)Diamond D & The Psychotic Neurotics
Long out of print, and even impossible to find on vinyl at the time of its release, Get on Down presents the classic Diamond D debut Stunts, Blunts and Hip Hop. As the album title states, this album is one long party from beginning to end. Diamond shines both on the mic and behind the boards creating one of the greatest Hip Hop albums ever made. Coming in at over an hour long Stunts never has a dull moment, Diamond along with the Psychotic Neurotic’s and his D.I.T.C brethren are able to make each song or interlude stand out and play through without any skip worthy moments. Literally, each track has such uniqueness to it, each song fits like a piece to the puzzle. Stand out tracks like “Step To Me”, “Pass that S#*t” or “Check One, Two” are perfect examples of Diamonds ability to create a different mood from song to song, the rhymes mirror the music almost perfectly. Singles such as “Best Kept Secret” and “Sally Got A One Track Mind” were perfect choices in showcasing the overall feel of the album. Although Diamond D handles the majority of the album's production, others such as Large Professor, Q-Tip, Jazzy Jay, Showbiz, and DJ Mark the 45 King co-produce on several tracks. The music he was making in 1992 cemented Diamond as one of the best producers in the game. This record is true to his heart, and because of the immense quality of its contents, it should be remembered fondly by all lovers of this music. As he puts it “Diamond is Dope Nuff Said”!
