Diamond D 'Stunts, Blunts & Hip Hop' 25th Anniversary Mixtape mixed by Chris Read

Diamond D 'Stunts, Blunts & Hip Hop' 25th Anniversary Mixtape mixed by Chris Read

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global funk chart, 1st in the global soul chart, 1st in the global jazz chart and 5th in the global hip hop chart.

Celebrating its 25th year a little over a week ago, Diamond D's largely self produced debut LP 'Stunts, Blunts & Hip Hop' also featured production contributions from an all star cast that included Jazzy Jay, Showbiz, 45 King, Large Professor and Q-Tip. The LP was notable for its eclectic sample sources from Blues to Funk, Soul and Jazz, largely steering clear of cuts that had previously been sampled by other artists. Together with Showbiz & A.G's debut (Runaway Slave), released the same day, it helped lay down the blueprint for the D.I.T.C sound, mining obscure cuts for memorable loops. In celebration of this classic album anniversary, we've teamed up with Wax Poetics to present this exclusive mixtape of album cuts, remixes, alt versions, interview snippets and of course original sample material, mixed by Chris Read.
