DJ Southpaw Chop ft. Diamond D (D.I.T.C.) - No Love Lost - 2017


SPCWX011 7" - 2017 - Southpaw Chop Music Production 


"Following the remix and re-release of the underground smash hit “Here We Go” featuring Large Professor, Southpaw Chop returns with yet another dope collaboration with an east coast hip-hop legend.
This time, Southpaw Chop teams up with Diggin’ in the Crates Crew (D.I.T.C.) founding member Diamond D, a true hip hop veteran on production and the mic, dating back his work in the late 1970’s as a DJ for Jazzy Jay.
The new release, entitled “No Love Lost” features a thick drum break and unforgettable sampling from Southpaw Chop, matched with the lyrical mastery of Diamond D. The collaboration yielded an instant classic, harking back to the golden days of D.I.T.C. and the roots of hip-hop, reminiscent of classics like Diamond’s own “With the Dope Sound”."
