N9ne The Great x Big Shep – King Of Diamonds (IL)

September 28th, 2015 | By Janei

KOD Cover Art

This one grew on me. Chicago new comers N9ne The Great and Big Shep come together for their growing popular single, “King Of Diamonds“. Of course you know this is dedicated to the infamous ground zero of strip clubs, but it also describes the honesty of being “broke” while pursuing the fast life of strip clubs and beautiful women. The beat, produced by Big Shep, is a blend of a classic Aaliyah sample and lush 808s. Get ready to face the reality of not stunting in a place filled with beautiful women, but still coming out on top with a story to tell.
