Diamond D Tells All: The Stories Behind His Classic Records

Pharoahe Monch f/ Common and Talib Kweli "The Truth" (1999)

Producer: Diamond D

Album: Internal Affairs

Label: Rawkus/Priority/EMI

Diamond D: “I think I played eight or nine joints for Pharoahe and he wound up picking three of them. I came in the studio, laid the track down, and he called me a month or so later, and all the vocals were down. I wish I could have been there to see them all lay that shit down, but by the time I got called in to mix it, [the vocals were finished]. That’s one of my favorite tracks that I’ve done for other people.”
