Release Date: 30th April 2021

 Impossible  to  find  on  vinyl  at  the  time  of  its  release,  Get  on  Down  presents  the classic  Diamond  D  debut  Stunts,  Blunts  and  Hip  Hop.  As  the  album  title  states,  this  album  is  one  long  party  from  beginning  to  end. Diamond shines both on the mic and behind the boards creating one of the greatest Hip Hop albums ever made. Coming in at overan hour  long  Stunts  never  has  a  dull  moment,  Diamond  along  with the Psychotic Neurotic’s and his D.I.T.C brethren are able to make each song  or  interlude stand  out  and  play  through  without  any  skip  worthy  moments.  Literally  each  track  has  such  uniqueness  to  it, each song fits like a piece to the puzzle. Stand out tracks like “Step To Me”, “Pass that S#*t” or “Check One, Two” are perfect examples of Diamonds ability to create a different mood from song to song, the rhymes mirror the music almost perfectly. Singles such as “Best Kept Secret” and “Sally Got A One TrackMind” were perfect choices in showcasing the overall feel of the album. Although Diamond D handles the majority of the album's production, others such as Large Professor, Q-Tip, Jazzy Jay, Showbiz, and DJ Mark the 45 King co-produce on several tracks. Themusic he was making in 1992 cemented Diamond as one of the best producers in the game. This record  is  true  to  his  heart,  and  because  of  the  immense  quality  of  its  contents,  it  should  be  remembered  fondly  by  all  loversof  this music. As he puts it “Diamondis Dope Nuff Said”!
