Video Vault: 5 Classic D.I.T.C. Music Videos From 1995

Friday, June 26th, 2015


Words by Daniel Isenberg (@StanIpcus)

The more time I spend revisiting ‘90s gems for our Twelve Jewelz series, the more I find myself diving as deep as I can into the Diggin’ In The Crates crew catalog. To me, D.I.T.C. is the essence of New York street hip-hop, complete with gritty, boom bap, neck-breaking beats and sample-based jazz/soul sounds, and that witty, no-bullshit Big Apple talk. They’re a special rap collective that deserves to be celebrated more than they normally are, for sure. So as we continue our look back at one of rap’s most monumental years, we invite you take a break from the new shit and enjoy our latest Video Vault featuring 5 Classic D.I.T.C. Music Videos From 1995. Hit the jump to read/watch.

Bronx Legend, DITC co-founder and my personal hero Lord Finesse hooked up with Rosenberg and Cipha Sounds for the latest installment of Juan Epstein.

Yes the Lord came thru to talk about everything. He covers the start of his career and the role Guru played in it, the creation of DITC, discovering Big L, working with Biggie, working on Chronic 2001 and Detox, and much more!

Freddie Foxxx on The Combat Jack Show

The legendary Freddie Foxxx aka Bumpy Knuckles appeared on the The Combat Jack Show and shared a lot of unfiltered rap history. Freddie discussed meeting Chuck D during a time where his life was on the line for the culture, his relationship with Tupac, being down with the Paid In Full Posse (Eric B.), his battle-rapping past, what happened with Queen Latifah/Flavor Unit, getting blackballed by Steve Stoute, what business lessons he learned from being around Naughty by Nature/D.I.T.C., being around Nas during his beef with Jay-Z and of course, his most famous beatdown stories dispelled.

I’m probably forgetting a lot but the full 2 hours is worth the time.

Lord Finesse on The Combat Jack Show

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

Finesse is the man, believe that! The NYC legend is the latest guest on The Combat Jack Show.

Says Jack:

Diggin’ In The Crates co-founder Lord Finesse gives us a history lesson on his days as the Funky Technician, discovering the late great Big L, being a part of the Notorious B.I.G.’s classic ‘Ready To Die’ album, running with Puff, working closely to this day with Dr. Dre and his legal issues with Mac Miller. Of course there’s more to this, so pull up a chair because rap class is in session so you can stop guessing. PLUS, a cameo comeback by Dallas Penn. #Str8Flourishments in effect b.
