Biography

Diamond District is a DC group made up of state veterans Oddisee, Uptown XO & Yu.
Their highly anticipated debut album ‘In the Ruff’ is the answer for any lover of hip-hop who asks the question - “Where did that grimy East coast sound go?”

The group was founded by Oddisee, who has collaborated with the likes of Freeway, Talib Kweli, Saigon, Little Brother, Trek Life, Charles Hamilton, Jazzy Jeff, Buckshot, Royce The 5”9’, Nikki Jean, Muhsinah, J-Live, lil fame of M.O.P. , Skyzoo, and many more. Oddisee’s soulful, haunting samples over bass-heavy beat breaks create the perfect instrumentals for him, X.O. & yU to match with their street savvy, politically conscious lyrics.

“The ware wolves wear wool suits, be ware of them …” - yU

‘In The Ruff’ is a raw mid-90’s Boom-Bap themed album for the DC state of mind, destined to appeal to all lovers of hip hop’s golden era, managing to travel back in time and push the boundaries of DC Hip-Hop simultaneously.
