    THIS RIGHT HERE IS SOME ILL ASS LYRICS:



    rtist: D.I.T.C. (Diggin in the Crates)
    Album: D.I.T.C.
    Song: Day One
    Typed by: [email protected]

    [Diamond D]
    Now its the mad magician with the ill deposition
    No repetition holdin down Bronx tradition
    My composition simply squash the competition
    Step up and get beat into submission
    Cause this musician with the street intuition
    7-35 fuel-injected transmission
    My opposition will have to recognize my steez
    Exotic trees leave a trail of scuffed up knees
    So please you couldn't touch this cat with a stick
    Quick to inflict tricks blaze up in the flick
    Son I'm sick and you could put that on my mama
    Exclamation point, quotation, comma
    Lay up on the beaches when I'm down in the Bahamas
    The skills go back to the days of wonderama
    So pass the scama, son its time to get this money
    So we can relax and recline where its sunny

    [Big L]
    I went from standin on the corner sellin cocaine
    To rippin shows live on stage the hoes yellin my name
    To be precise rippin mics is the light of my life
    You frontin like you trife but never pulled a heist in your life
    The price of my ice is sky high, I'm a fly guy
    Its every thugs dream I really love cream, its in my blood stream
    You mad cause I got more chicks than you, more bricks than you
    More nines and extra clips than you
    Where I live it ain't a nice town
    You can't walk around with ice down
    Some clown probably gettin stuck right now
    Peace to D-I-T-C, Show and AG, Fat J-O-E
    Diamond D, Lord Finesse, and me
    I'm from the East Coast, this is how we roll in New York
    A bunch of rowdy niggas holdin the fort
    Jackin creeps, packin heat, these Harlem streets is for keeps
    Much love to all my peeps who got a couple of sheets

    Chorus: Yo, most these rap cats don't know
    Where it started, wher it came from
    We been rappin this shit since Day One
    Diggin In The Crates originators
    Why niggas playa haters
    Knowin damn well you can't fade us

    [A.G. (Andre the Giant)]
    You better take me out quick
    Cause I'm accurate when I bust mine
    And make it count like Jordan at crunch time
    Just in case I play Fishburn and double up on nines
    You can never make it rain or stop my sunshine
    So I keep eyes on these chumps the whole time
    Take note of your technique like we sceme on dimes
    Disregard your crew, fuck your heart
    Put a slug in me, it'll be marriage
    'Til death do us part
    Until then master this art and kill them
    With the pen thats dramatic, automatics I commit sins
    Hold my head, but when I've had it I test chins
    If that ain't real then feel the stainless steel
    Bang'em and hang'em like they did our relatives
    Thought he was the best on the mic that ever lived, negative
    Wu-diggity if you with me then say word
    Lets get twisted like bottlecaps [and] create like Spielberg

    [Lord Finesse]
    Check the referral, man my whole squad's thorough
    We worldwide niggas is nice in one burrough
    We all gleam, plus we feind for more cream
    You got some nice players they just on the wrong team
    Nahmean...as the world turns
    Avoid concern we'll set you straight like a perm
    Rap apostle lyrical type picasso kinda hostile
    Nothing less than colossal, you dig me like fossils
    Be the cat with the groovy soul
    Lotta rappers out here acting with no movie roles
    You know the deal I represent skills
    And niggas with bank reels that live to make a mil
    On the real thats my motto
    To hard to follow
    When dinasour perform goin out like bravado
    Hard to hit like lotto underworld role model
    D.I.T.C. we be them cats to tomorrow

    Chorus

    [O.C.]
    Holdin it down for D.I.T.C niggas stink like feces
    Goin against raw dogs ya lost
    The way I simulate rhyme and rhythimatic timin
    On beat off beat drunk flow here we go
    Assignments handed out each individual stand out
    Carryin his own clout
    Phenomenal motions of rap I pose a threat
    Foes I put em on a block like a hole in a pin
    Lyrical genocide on the witty side
    Niggas give me respect due like the pope in a synagogue
    Who waitin my odds O.C. far from a fraud
    You waste my time nigga so I bagged your broad
    Blow your mind ditto with no conscience
    I decide the law motherfucker I'm Congress
    This concludes my repetoire what I be on
    MC's make way for mine or get peed on
    Fuck that

    D.I.T.C., which stands for Diggin In The Crates, is an eight member collective of dope MC's and producers. In 2000 they released their self-titled debut. Every member of D.I.T.C. has each had success on their own and have had solo careers or other groups and side projects that have also brought them fame. But when you bring together MC's Fat Joe, Big L, O.C., A.G, and solid, banging production by Show, Buckwild and Lord Finesse and Diamond (who are also MC's) the combination is dope, classic hip hop at its finest. D.I.T.C. is a near perfect album that can be played through without skipping a song and then be rewound and played again without it sounding tired or monotonous. The thing that makes every song so good is the sharp, clever and witty lyrics from the MC's and the banging beats, which were produced entirely by the in house D.I.T.C. producers, except for three Premo tracks, one Rockwilder track and one Ahmed track. Some standouts include "Thick," and its remix, produced by Rockwilder, "Where Ya At," which only features Big Pun and Milano who drop good verses over a thight Show beat, "Way Of Life" and "Da Enemy", which features the winning combination of Fat Joe and Big L, the two Diamond produced joints, "Day One" and "Foundation", both of which feature tight verses from Diamond, Lord Finesse, O.C. and A.G., the solo O.C. joint "Champagne Thoughts" produced by Buckwild, Big L's "Ebonics" (Remix) produced by Premo, the blazin posse cut "Drop It Heavy," which features one of Big Pun's dopest verses ever, and also dope verses from KRS-One and A.G., "Stand Strong", which has another dope beat from Show, and a solid lyrical performance from Big L, Lord Finesse, O.C, and A.G, and "Tribute" which is dedicated to their fallen group member, Big L. The album is definitely as dope as I as said it is and every serious hip hop fan needs to have it in their collection, so go cop it and I promise you, you won't be sorry.
