DITC & The Beatnuts at the Opera House this Friday


If you're a golden-age hip hop fan then you've probably already heard about the destined- to-be-legendary show happening at the Opera House this Friday - four members of the DITC crew (Lord Finesse, Diamond D, AG and OC) and the Beatnuts, appearing as part of the "New York Giants" concert series.

The DITC (Diggin' In The Crates) family includes some of New York's most renowned MCs, including Lord Finesse, AG, OC, and the sadly departed Big L and Big Pun, as well as three producers who helped to define the New York sound in the 90s - Diamond D, Showbiz and Buckwild. It's hard to imagine hip-hop without songs like "Day One", "Soul Clap" and "Time's Up".

The Beatnuts, on the other hand, are composed of JuJu and Psycho Les - two wild and crazy guys who have made their share of hip-hop anthems celebrating the high life, generating hit after hit like "Off The Books" and "Watch Out Now".
