Original post 3/06/09: When the Diamond Boiz emerged on the local scene a while back, they were a young, amateurish collective with a raw energy that needed honing. But within the last year, the crew, which consists of solo artists Dyalekt, Zome and Ze, have matured, grown, and taken heed of their hip-hop peers in terms of how to improve the quality of their music. It also helps that they have a rabid following that goes to almost every show where their names appear on the marquee. The trio plans to drop a mixtape, Calm Before the Storm, on Saturday, April 25, with DJ Denco, followed by the release of their individual solo albums.
"All three of our solo albums will be released near the end of this year, all on the same day but a date has not been set yet," Dyalect says. "Mine is going to be called They Call Me JClass, but Zome and Ze's are still unnamed."
