David Banner Bodies Diamond D Production With Some Food For Thought (Video)

BY JORDAN COMMANDEUR • OCTOBER 16, 2019

It has been five years since Diamond D dropped The Diam Piece. Following some independent projects, that Dymond Mine/EMPIRE release garnered the D.I.T.C. triple-threat his greatest acclaim since 1997’s Hatred, Passion and Infidelity sophomore drop. In 2019, the Bronx, New Yorker assembled The Diam Piece 2, a sequel with an equally impressive lineup of guests and beats galore. The 16-track offering features a literal who’s who of classic Hip-Hop including Pharoahe Monch, Snoop Dogg, Erick Sermon, Fat Joe, Raekwon, Styles P, Elzhi, and many more. However, one MC that Heads might not have expected is Mississippi vet David Banner, who opens the latest single from the album, “Bodied.” This laid-back track also features Diamond’s longtime protege Big Rec, and Brooklyn multi-hyphenate, Edson Sean. A video for the song filmed and directed by Tommy Nova has arrived on the scene.

The visuals start with a quote from James Baldwin that sets the tone: “It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, who had ever been alive.” While “body” is exactly what both lyricists do to the beat, Banner and Rec also both drop knowledge.
