The legendary Diamond D of the D.I.T.C. collective is back and he's brought the mighty Pharoahe Monch with him. The two hip-hop veterans take listeners on a trip through the 'Rap Life' in this music video premiered by HipHopDX. Diamond D handles the hook and production as he supplies Monch with a triumphant sounding, horn-laden beat.

Monch raps, "N----s that run up on you in these streets, they don't love you / these chickenheads just wanna kiss you and hug you / that's why I roll with Diamond, man, that's the bodyguard / I don't even have to stress out of body god / acting like he made a stone, he ain't hardly hard."

This song serves as the lead single for Diamond D's upcoming album 'The Diam Piece' due out later this year. The album is set to be a star-studded affair with the likes of Pete Rock, Alchemist, Skyzoo, Talib Kweli, Hi-Tek, Kurupt, Rapsody, Tha Alkaholiks, A.G. and Smif-N-Wessun appearing on the project.
