Diamond D "With the Dope Sound" (1994/8)
The track is pretty simple, but most of Diamond's bangers relied on simple loops. He samples himself for the chorus ("Yeah...it's Diamond D with the dope sound"), and the track would fall flat if it wasn't actually dope. And it is, on the head-nod tip, with a nice snare. The lyrics are vintage Diamond:
Like Jesse Owens, you know I got it goin'
showin' and provin', you know I got you movin' to the
boom-boom-bap, boom-ba-boom bap
my new rap, I'm hangin' n*ggas with a shoe-strap
With a shoe strap? Werd...
