An Interview With Diamond Blacc


A new single release from Diamond Blacc gives off a performance with a fire behind it and an amazing approach to lyrical phrasing that comes in these waves that pull you in allowing the song to sort of wrap itself around you and the entire time, you find yourself getting down with the beat, but also really paying attention to the words that are spoken.


The "Remedy" single has a lot of attention to detail because the flow and artistry of it from beginning to end, is very tight and well-built but it also has a certain level of heart to it and Truth that you find yourself holding on to even more.


It's great to hear a track like this that doesn't lose sight of its actual purpose.


I love that there are elements of both old and new school hip hop vibes that come through during the course of this single and the energy level is exactly where it should be letting the song come through with this sort of dynamic balance that keeps everything in one perfect spot.


This is the kind of track that you play again as soon as it ends because it has memorable attributes to it and parts that stick in your head for hours after the song is ended and the only way to satiate that is to play the song again which in my mind is just smart songwriting.


I also enjoy a hip-hop track that has well-thought-out lyrics and everything on this track lyrically is articulated so well that I think all the things that the artist is saying come through the way he wanted.


We all like a good freestyle or mixtape here and there but when you hear a track like this that sounds professional, clean, and has that sort of sheen to it, you get attracted to it more because it's a lot bigger and right in your face.


This was very well woven, and the intricacies are all pinpointed but throughout it all it never loses that drive that it started with all the way through to the end.


Upon listening to this track, I felt the urge to go take a dive through the back catalog and what I found was a lot of outstanding tracks that all show a little bit of a different side to Diamond Blacc but also this sort of glue that holds everything together giving him his own staple sound as well.


If you dig this track which I'm sure you will, then you should definitely check out some of his back catalog that he has on Spotify with releases dating back to 2020.


It's very refreshing to find a solid hip-hop artist that gives off this kind of energy and polish in one shot and with this single release, we did want to have a sit down with him to find out where this came from and what might be coming up next for the artist.


Here's what went down.



Buzz Slayers: Okay, let's start with "Remedy"! This track had fire and honesty to it that made it addictive! How did this release come about?



Thank you so very much. This song grew from the betrayals I've endured from certain people in my life that I was very good to. I'm no stranger to adversity and the falsehoods people portray. What is done in the dark always comes to light. No matter how great the attacks of the enemies, I have always and will always rise to and above the occasion. REMEDY is the anecdote to the envy of my foes.


Buzz Slayers: How did this all start for you as an artist?



My music birthed out darkness and the betrayal of someone I once loved. This song is a full circle moment from the origins of my artistry and my growth as an individual.



Buzz Slayers: What kind of things really inspire songs for you?



Life experiences of the past, present and future have always served as the basis, subject and topics of all my music.



Buzz Slayers: I really liked the music video! Did this come out how you expected?



The music video came out even better than I could have imagined. I am so grateful to Chop Mosley for helping me bring my vision to light. It is by far my favorite and greatest creation.



Buzz Slayers: This release has some great approaches to it! Can you give us some of your biggest influences musically?



Some of my biggest influences are Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne and Kanye West. One of my favorite eras and times is the 70s. I love Chaka Khan and Rose Royce.



Buzz Slayers: Buzz Slayers: What are you doing when you're NOT working on music?



When I'm not working on music, I'm at work and going to night school for public relations, then back to music.



Buzz Slayers: Who's in your headphones right now?



Lately, I've been listening to my own music. I'm always practicing to prepare myself for what's next. Preparation and consistency are key and I will be READY for my moment. So I've been on a Diamond Blacc kick lately lol.



Buzz Slayers: Are you doing any live performances right now?



I've been in contact with a few venues and booking agents. So with this release, I'll be performing soon. It's been a little while but I am beyond excited. Stay Tuned!



Buzz Slayers: Do you record these at a big studio or do you have a home studio set-up?


I tend to record at studios. I love the atmosphere, vibe and sound quality they offer.



Buzz Slayers: What can your fans expect from you in the near future?



I have so much more music coming! This is only the beginning!


Buzz Slayers: Before we go, what would you like to say to fans of the music?



I would like to thank each and every individual who has listened to one of my songs even just once! Your support means the world to me and I hope that my music can continue to satiate your ear. I am beyond grateful for you all.
