So basically, Diamond D has signed a multi-album deal with Babygrande Records. On the 14th of October, he'll be releasing The Huge Hefner Chronicles. The first single, D-I-A-M-O-N-D, which I'm posting below, is produced by Nottz. The beat is pretty hot. As a producer, Diamond is widely regarded as one of the best that ever did it, but on this new LP he'll be mostly in artist mode, and sharing the production workload with cats like DJ Scratch, Illmind, and 45 King, among others.

As I posited with my post about Large Professor dropping his new album, are heads still checking for Diamond D, or are we more interested in what the Polow The Don's and Timbalands of the world are up to? And if the interest is still there, what are your expectations for this new album? How do you feel about the 1st single?
