With their 2009 debut LP, Diamond District established themselves as loyal torch-bearers for that classic boom-bap sound. Though the DMV reppers are planning to stay in their lane for much of the the follow-up, they're not opposed to swerving into uncharted aural territory every now and again. For example, second single Lost Cause finds them going in over a double-time beat. As usual, Oddisee mans the boards, layering chopped soul samples over a bouncy, reggae-tinged rhythm section as he, yU and Uptown XO rhyme about their unstoppable rise to power, both in the music game and in society at large. Feeling it? More quality tunes await on March on Washington scheduled to drop via Mello Music Group on Tuesday, October 14.
