Diamond District, the trio of yU, Oddisee and Uptown XO, are known for their everyday man-type of hip-hop; that is to say, the type of hip-hop that literally anyone can relate, and rock, to. Their new joint ‘Lost Cause’ is no exception, as the three brothers bare their all in detail over this bouncy and soulful soundscape (which incidentally was also produced by Oddisee).
Another definite gem from Diamond District. A must-hear if I may add.
Diamond District’s second single Lost Cause from the groups upcoming album March On Washington. The track is produced by rising star Oddisee and features the trio (yU, Oddisee, Uptown XO) rhyming some of their most impassioned bars to date. The three emcees bring wildly different styles to the track and offer listeners something very fresh. Like brothers who’ve gone down different paths, yU, Oddisee, and Uptown XO all started in DC and have grown into their own unique solo careers. Diamond District brings them together again as a testament to both their perfect chemistry, and their uniqueness as individual elements in the musical world.
Cosmopolitan troubadour ODDISEE offers a worldly take on where he sits in modern society versus where he would have sat a century ago. Street scientist UPTOWN XO lays fire to a personal tale of struggle and survival. And finally the humble king yU puts down one of the most righteous verses ever laid. Enjoy.
