Diamond District - Hologram

For those chomping at the bit to get their hands on the official release of Diamond District's debut album, In The Ruff, Christmas may have just come a week early. While the album's official release date remains October 27th, District triumvirate Oddisee, X.O., and YU have come bearing gifts this week.
First, the single "Hologram" is dropping this week. One of the brand new songs on In the Ruff, "Hologram" has a raw, tough sound. Producer/Rapper Oddisee says
"we wanted something a bit grimier... the official release is coming out in the fall, towards winter, so we wanted something to fit the attitude of the season that the album is going to be coming out in. We were mainly trying to concentrate on storytelling raps and the aesthetic of the '90s. It's a style we all appreciate and it's something we were aiming for on In The Ruff." With a woozy beat, vintage soul sample chorus, and matter of fact lyrics, the track is perfect for headphones on a cold sidewalk.

The official release of In The Ruff is available now on vinyl. Diamond District's In The Ruff will be available on CD and digital download on October 27 via Mello Music Group. Download their FREE mixtape, Diamond District, and their single I Mean Business HERE
