Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing Diamond D, Fat Joe, and Buckwild, and of course I’m a huuuge D.I.T.C. fan, so it was great to see how this piece brought the story of the whole crew together, album by album. Love the approach, props to the author Mike “DJ” Pizzo, and salute to all the legendary D.I.T.C. members.
Check out the oral history below, and grab their new album HERE.

O.C. and Diamond D drop some bars live on air with Tony Touch. Respect the OGs, always.
I was looking back at a couple past Toca Tuesdays freestyles I slept on, and I gotta say, Strong Island spitter SmooVth nonchalantly kills this shit. Dude is nice.
More heat from the D.I.T.C. camp. Respect the architects.
Always respect the D.I.T.C. OGs—this shyt is tough.
Back-to-back D.I.T.C. posts, fuck with me. Gotta say, the crew is in a great place musically, I’m loving all the recent output. Peep their latest release “Gotta Be Classic,” featuring A.G. and O.C., with production by Showbiz. Dope.
D.I.T.C. continues to drop new music this week with a fresh banger by O.C. titled “My City.” This shit is hard, and it features the same Menahan Street Band sample I used on “The Working Man Is A Sucker.” Great to hear O.C. doing what he does best, dude has always been one of my favorite MCs. Knock this.
Been hearing and seeing a lot about D.I.T.C. coming back together, and now finally they give us a taste of what we can expect in 2016 from the Bronx-based legends. Listen to their new song “Make ‘Em So Proud (Hold Up)” above, featuring A.G., Fat Joe, and Diamond D. The soulful, boom-bap beat is perfect for winter whipping through NYC—lean back to this.
