Throwback Thursdays Vol 38

Whilst the self-proclaimed kings of New York were battling it out for the throne, attention had turned to the underground where the streets were going crazy for the hip-hop supergroup Diggin’ In The Crates crew.

In early 1990 Lord Finesse brought together some of the most talented producers, DJ’s and MC’s in the game who would later become one of the most respected hip-hop group’s of all time. Diamond D, Showbiz, A.G., O.C., Buckwild, Fat Joe and finally Big L one-by-one eventually teamed up to form the legendary D.I.T.C.

D.I.T.C. – Day One

D.I.T.C. – Day One (Remix)

Although the group never really put on an official album until Big L passed in 1999, there is plenty of material which has since surfaced from their earlier days. This week’s throwback, Day One, was released in 1997 and also served as the first single from D.I.T.C.’s debut self-titled album. Produced by Diamond D, Day One is rare in the fact it has most of the group members spitting short verses over Oliver Sain’s On The Hill xylophone sample.  Plaudits are split between Big L and O.C. here.

Below is a recent interview with Lord Finesse who further breaks down how D.I.T.C. were brought together.
