Residing in Atlanta, Dillon recently released the Food Chain full-length with producer Paten Locke, which featured Dres of Black Sheep, Homeboy Sandman, Count Bass-D, J-Live and Supa Dave West. A bona fide Hiphop legend and Grammy-Winner, Diamond D is a member of the Diggin In The Crates crew which also includes Lord Finesse, O.C., Fat Joe, Buckwild, Showbiz and A.G. and the late Big L, and has produced tracks for The Fugees, Big L, Pharoahe Monch, Busta Rhymes and Mos Def.

"Whenever Diamond and I get up, whether it's to work or chill or whatever, it's always a celebration," Dillon says. "Something's gettin poured up, something's gettin rolled up, and somebody's gonna crack up. It's jokes, it's breaks, it's Sanford & Son. We just cook. With the music, the food, the wax, all that. We FEAST, always." Black Tie Affair drops September 8 via FULL PLATE (Bandcamp)/ Fat Beats.

Gensu Dean ft Diamond D - Principles & Codes

For those new to Gensu Dean, the Texas based analog producer started in Jackson, Mississippi producing on the now legendary Crooked Lettaz debut Grey Skies for his friend and Grammy Winner David Banner.  Since that time he has gone on to produce for some of the best to ever do it including Ol Dirty Bastard (Wu-Tang Clan), CL Smooth, Sean Price, Large Professor, Planet Asia, Denmark Vessey, Guilty Simpson, and more. 

 

"Slick words to me is all chatter"

Gensu Dean's analog production is nasty, funk em up raw - a return to all things scrunch-face good. Add legendary DITC founding member Diamond D on the mic and you know you're about to get a lesson from two of the coldest to ever do it.  Principles & Codes kicks in the door for Gensu Dean's new project coming November 25th titled "RAW" that features Diamond D, Roc Marciano, Homeboy Sandman, Red Pill, J-Live, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Conway, and more.    

"Hard drums, dope groove, and ill bar work from my man Diamond was the main ingredient for this joint," says Gensu. "It set the tone and standard for the rest of my album, and thus had to be the jump off!"
