With plenty of trap music and unfair age discrimination in hip hop every year, someone from the past comes through and shines the light letting everyone know that true emceeing isn’t dead just yet. While looking for that breathe of fresh air veteran artists Talib Kweli and Bronx producer and rapper Diamond D link up to form Gotham.
“One of the first well-known producers to ever show me love in this music business was the legend Diamond D,” Kweli said. “I was raised on his music, from his solo work to the incredible contributions he’s made on the albums of others like Big L, Yasiin Bey, A Tribe Called Quest, Fat Joe, Fugees and many others. As a Bronx native, his sound represents the best, most original hip-hop in the world. New York City.”
