September 30, 2008
Stunts, Blunts and Hip Hop is the debut album from hip hop producer/rapper Diamond D, released with his crew the Psychotic Neurotics. The album features some of the earliest appearances from Diamond’s later D.I.T.C. partners Big L and Fat Joe, as well as production from popular beatmakers such as Large Professor, Q-Tip and Dj Mark the 45 King. The album features the singles “Best Kept Secret” and “Sally Got a One Track Mind”. The album was not released on vinyl, however there were promotional copies pressed up with full artwork which were very highly sought after. The vinyl edition was eventually made available as a reissue years later. The original promo has a sticker on it, the reissue had this sticker scanned in.
In 1998, the album was selected as one of The Source Magazine’s 100 Best Rap Album.
