1. AUDIO: Royce da 5'9", Skillz & Diamond D - "One For The Money."

    royce-skillz-diamond-for-the-money

    Detroit, Richmond, VA, and The Bronx (via ATL) form an axis of boom-bap power on this Royce da 5'9" - Skillz - Diamond D joint effort from the forthcoming Coalmine Records compilation, Unearthed . Actually, make that a four-point star with Boston-bred producer G-Squared providing the flavorful track (fans of Louie and/or classic '70s songs about forbidden interracial love will no doubt recognize the sample source). And as punchline ballyhooed as Royce and Skillz may be, "Money" provides a nice reminder of how good it is to once again hear Diamond on the mic - particularly when he says ish like, "I don't run with jesters/ So if I give you a pass, know it was just a slim gesture." Fall back, clowns. Everyone else, listen...
