Mad late posting: Diamond District - In The Ruff

Don't ask why I didn't post this the night the joint dropped cuz I sure as hell downloaded it on Tuesday. Nonetheless, I present this to you for your listening pleasure. Diamond District, the truest representation of the DMV is made up of Northwest DC's XO (recently signed to Kenny Burns's Studio 43), uber-talented producer Oddisee (PG County, MD) and Y.U. (Northern Virginia) - see what I mean? The trio dropped their highly anticipated album, In The Ruff, which boasts a 90s boom bap flavor complemented by a DMV accent (no pun intended I swear lol). A stereotype shattering effort if I must say so myself and I think y'all will agree.
