As those tuned into the DMV hip-hop scene (or the Booth) are well aware, Oddisee, X.O. and yU of The Diamond District most definitely Mean Business –  if you need more convincing, simply take a look at the numerous rave reviews their late-‘90s boom-bap-inspired In the Ruff LP has already accumulated since its release this past October. On this official remix of the album’s second single, yU takes Oddisee’s place behind the boards; trading his partner’s gritty boardwork for a chopped-sample instrumental with an emphasis on swung percussion; he crafts a funkier but no less retro-appealing backdrop for the trio’s vivid, politically-conscious brand of street lyricism. Those who like what they’re hearing can find more of the Diamond District’s patented blend of on-point, positive-minded rhymes and banging throwback beats on In the Ruff (if you haven’t already purchased a copy), and fans should also be sure to check out the newly-released, instrumental version of the project.
