It’s hard to believe that it’s been four years since DMV supergroup Diamond District released their seminal debut album In The Ruff. The instant classic was firmly entrenched in the golden era, but far from retro. The group pulled the best qualities from the past, while still looking toward the future.
Now, after several solo releases and instrumental projects, the trio has reconnected as they prepare for their long anticipated sophomore album, March On Washington. If “Bonus Flow,” which appears on Oddisee’s Tangible Dream mixtape, is an example of what to expect, March On Washington will have been well worth the wait. Sparked by a Notable Quotable worthy verse from Uptown XO, he, Oddisee, and yU issue a warning to the competition, both inside and outside the beltway, that their days in the sun are numbered.
