Diamond D Drops Artwork & Tracklisting For ‘The Diam Piece 3: Initium’ Album

Diamond D shares the artwork and tracklisting for his upcoming album, ‘The Diam Piece 3: Initium’, featuring KRS-One, 38 Spesh, RJ Payne, Inspectah Deck, Royal Flush, and more.

Following his 2022 release, ‘The Rear View’, legendary rapper/producer Diamond D returns to team up with a star-studded cast of guest emcees on ‘The Diam Piece 3: Initium’.

It serves as the final installment in his producer compilation series and will also be released in three parts.

Following Initium, D plans to release ‘Duo’ and ‘Tria’ over the course of the next six months.

In this day and age of short attention spans, I would never release an album with 29 songs,” Diamond D explains. “That’s why I’m choosing to release ‘The Diam Piece 3 as three EPs,’ released every three months, so each one can be appreciated and absorbed on its own.

On Initium, the DITC cofounder provides his trademark hard-hitting production for the likes of KRS-One, Inspectah Deck, 38 Spesh, RJ Payne, Fatman Scoop, Royal Flush, Skyzoo, Sauce Money, Torae, Lord Tariq, and Bonecrusher, among many others.

For the track’s lead single, Diamond wanted to highlight his collaboration with KRS, “The Kings”, as a celebration of their previous work together on cuts like “Build Ya Skillz”, “Squash All Beef”, and the “Step into a World” remix.

I crafted a dark and gritty track that gave Kris the backdrop to do what he does best—spit hard bars!” D added.

It’s that same feeling of true collaboration that makes the entirety of this EP such a success, and it serves as another example of Diamond D’s incredible talents as a producer.

“The Kings” hits DSPs on July 26, with ‘The Diam Piece 3: Initium’, set to drop on August 9th via DSPs and vinyl through Diamond D’s own Dymond Mine Records.
