Way way back when in 1992, Diamond D released his magnus opus ‘Stunts Blunts & Hip Hop’ which along with work by the likes of Pete Rock pretty much established the blueprint for all that was to follow in the ‘golden era’ of hip hop.

The album featured early appearances from both Big L and Fat Joe, as well as additional production credits from Large Professor, Q Tip, Showbiz and The 45 King.

It is hard now to describe the excitement that preceded this release, but it was definitely one of the defining moments of the time. The UK release was delayed for some reason and a batch of white label bootlegs found there way into stores, which have only added to the album’s legendary status.

Diamond D plays a rare set and performs live at the next On The Real party on Friday 17th September 2010.
