The captivating bass-heavy rap track sees the North Londoner in braggadocios mode, as he waxes lyrically about the life and times of a rising rap stalwart, who is intent on taking his talents to the very top of the UK rap music landscape.
Speaking about the inspiration behind ‘Diamonds’, Brodie says, “My inspiration for writing ‘Diamonds’ was my desire to be a star in UK rap. I was seeing people blow up around that time and it just fuelled me to write ‘Diamonds’, as it made me feel like I can do it too. You can hear the hunger and passion in the track and I think that’s what makes it powerful.
