neverworld Rushden & Diamonds single-handedly got me into both Hip Hop and Vaporwave music. Not only is their music top notch, they are awesome people. Ever since I got my hands on a copy of 2010 R&D has been my jam! Favorite track: Own World ft. Kelsey Muske, Rozz Dyliams and Angus Khan.

Mr. Mota Finally, Michael Rushden and Lord Karl Edward Diamonds return to form in a sequel that was truly worth waiting for. Not only are the songs and features all I could have hoped for, but the bonus track 2020 storyline is exactly how myself as a fan wanted it to play out, following up right where 2010 left off. If you're a fan of hip hop, 80s culture and video games this right here is worth every single penny! Favorite track: Own World ft. Kelsey Muske, Rozz Dyliams and Angus Khan.

KUTMASTA KURT, MOKA ONLY WRITTEN BY LORD DIAMONDS, MOKA ONLY, MICHAEL RUSHDEN PUBLISHED BY VOLUNTEER PUBLISHING (SOCAN) INTRO: I wanna know what you're used to baby / oh DIAMONDS: Better lean on back / it’s full throttle to the max in the 2 door jag / dipped in all black gleemin’ like an artifact / if you don’t see where were heading take your face out the map / ride the I-5 glidin’ south of beverly hills / with my hand up on the wheel why'll your coppin’ a feel / lavish living this a sealed deal / valet parking next to Fred Siegel’s step out and it’s all real. HOOK: But this can’t be what you’re used to / 5 star living with a view and it’s all new / but this can’t be what you’re used to / million dollar dreamin’ of a yacht and it comes true / but this can’t be what you’re used to / wines and fine dining by the beach out in Malibu / but this can’t be what you’re used to / naw / but this can’t be what you’re used to. RUSHDEN: Yo kids these days want material things / lucky for me it’s so sweet when I’m back on the scene / I hit the I-5 88 Ferrari / white convertible top down so let’s party / Kenwood deck with the gold-plated panel / in rotation with the distro on Clear Channel / five star living I’ve been booked with no hassle / signed a deal with the lord in his castle (real professional) / back for round two R&D It’s official / arriving in your sizzle in a Lamborghini missile / like a three year lease on the pent house level / never front or I’ll have to go ahead and blow the whistle / live the high life / flashin’ bright rights / from the Testarossa flamin’ out the tale pipes / most of these girls drive around in Isuzus / but this cant be what your used you. HOOK: Repeat SPOKEN BRIDGE: What’s going on my good man? / what’s up Diamonds? / I’m in the Lagonda / oh word up? / you wanna roll? / ya I’m up for a game of squash after this / let’s get this business done first / no man to the Sinclair / huh? / food court / oh you don’t wanna play squash you wanna eat squash / yes man yes / aight thats cool we can go eat some squash soup / I know a really cool deli around the corner. MOKA ONLY: Start from the Coup Dueck on Marine / shoot down to Blaine on the Skagit scene / I-5 cruisn’ Fiero green King County / evergreen pedal to the metal I speed / and I gallop through the Puyallup / Northgate Southgate Tacoma Mall / go to Tony Romas cuz the traffic crawls / after rush hour I hit the long hall / gotta see Diamonds tomorrow at three / Sunset & Crescent Heights Mcy the D’s / he’ll bring the briefcase full of the cheese so I can take it to my man Louie Devi / now he got the keys for the MR3 / can’t tell ya more that’s some secretsty / gotta be dipped in my Ralphy tee / Brooks Brothers loafers plus the Yves St. Laurent glasses to scoop the asses / but I’m on a job so the chicks can pass us / make the transaction it’s number the one / than pick up Rushden for a canyon run / Laurel / (oh) / oh / my gosh / (it’s unbelievable) / yeah.

AFTERPARTY AFTERNOON WRITTEN BY LORD DIAMONDS, MICHAEL RUSHDEN PUBLISHED BY VOLUNTEER PUBLISHING (SOCAN) HOOK: Back when you went down town and the night was still young you would text me photos like we were cool / but now the clubs shut down and nobody stuck around so I’ma tell you what we ought to do / I just wanna turn the lights off baby / so you can show me all the right stuff baby / I just wanna turn the lights off baby / because I know we've got the right stuff lately / afterparty afternoon. RUSHDEN: Let me show you finer things through the rear view / white suit white whip and it seats two / exotic wines in a home out in Malibu / I'll be your man if your man can't afford you / so sit back and relax as I croon / I brought a few things that I asked you to choose / if you want to unwind I can master the mood / set the jets on smooth ‘til you feel a rare groove / as I list all the things that I own / a Wellcraft a yacht a Bertone / watching you get in the zone / dreaming of hearing you moan while I spray myself down with a Mennen cologne / let's make a magical moment that lasts for a lifetime and I know your mine like a perfectly treated and all seasoned and cut in its prime / I think you’re incredible. HOOK: Repeat DIAMONDS: You've been patient for a very long time it's a crime that you weren't on tour / but what I brought you girl is so hard to imagine your mind mustn't be impure / most fools would believe that flying overseas would relieve from their life so poor / but when I'm far from home and I ring your phone I just picture you dressed in velour / I like your style couture / faux crocodile and fur / slightly Armani but highly mature / based on my mood take my Bentley and fetch us some Moet for two while I warm up the pool / most have a sweet night / in the moonlight / like a honeymoon / but its business for me for a noon after party in the bedroom. HOOK: Repeat BRIDGE: Last time I asked you were not that into all the things I mentioned / said it wasn't real didn't feel the connection / drinkin’ on my own need an intervention / saw a name on your phone I didn't want to mention / I just wanna spend the afternoon where it's just me and you for a party of two / this time let's go and heat up the room / turn the lights down low to set the mood. HOOK: Repeat

DIAMONDS: Call it full throttle / chandeliers and models sippin’ D’Usse out the bottle private jets to Colorado / it’s a celebration (let me see me your hands) / crowd participation (let me see you dance) / it’s a toast to business / Bentley on the spinners shootin’ hoops with the sinners at the Wynn in Las Vegas / Palomino loungin’ / pool party dippin’ never seen so many women look this glistenin’ in a minute / started independent never knowing what we’d get / now I’m flowin’ where we’re goin’ on a Diamonds private jet / If you’re in it represent / if you’re in it represent / I’ma pull back on the reigns just to drain a couple cents / if the club is over limit can I take your name / drive you off to Aspen just to rate champagne / the real baes wouldn’t second guess if it’s Venice / call the server like it’s tennis if it's time to toast to business. HOOK: Repeat BRIDGE: If your chain is worth more than a plane time to celebrate for raking it in / and if you feel no shame or pain like novocaine congratulations cause you’re going to win / it's a very good time to shine and been alive signing deals in places you've never been / (these days just focus on simple things that made you such a tycoon dude) / toast to business. RUSHDEN: I’m just so delighted for the celebration / Stetson boots tailored suits and the guns blazin’ / calamari tan with the shrimp Cajun / I hope you let me be your man your just so amazin’ / Cinderella white with the glass slipper / a custom Zippo on the dash with the fast flicker / Michael’s here to party ever since I got an audit let me finish what we started / not like me to compete with most / hair keeps flowing like the movie Ghost / rock a white suit like I might propose / wear a three hair tweed with a whole grain oat / room keeps spinnin’ but I got this / bag of loose leaf if ya want this / ride through the city in an AMC with the gull wings out for the public / if you wanna jam / I can be your man / rockin’ coral new blue colored boots from Japan / If it’s what you’ve been wishin’ / raise another million cause it’s business that we’re toastin’.

OWN WORLD FT. KELSEY MUSKE, DYLAN ROSS, ANGUS KHAN WRITTEN BY ANGUS MCNEILLY, DYLAN ROSS, LORD DIAMONDS, MICHAEL RUSHDEN, PUBLISHED BY VOLUNTEER PUBLISHING (SOCAN) INTRO HOOK: I’m sick of living in my own world / I’m looking for a resolution / I’m sick of living in my own world / I’m sick of living in my own world. RUSHDEN: Some times I feel like I don’t have enough / designer watches sport coats cigarettes by Davidoff / my life is tough / two pots of coffee but I’m feeling rough / no motivation just an empty void of priceless stuff / at least I’m buff / keys to the ‘Rari but I’m still bored / but I might leave town drive around going down right now in the Lambo floored / hard to be ignored / need a flight booked to get out the fort / no destination cause my life’s stuck in reverse boy / pray to the Lord. DIAMONDS: Not around if you wanna get down / see I’m far outta town when I’m fixing my crown / not around baby anytime you need me / I’m not to be found other then a place of royalty / anytime I think of wealth I spend a G / sign a cheque and hopefully its over me / ’til I’m back on track on my ATV / ridin’ out to this sound potent poetry / with the most potent potency to keep it going G.

BRIDGE: I’m sick of living in my own world / my own world / my own world / my own world / I’m sick of living in my own world / my own world / my own world / my own world. ANGUS KHAN: MTV is empty / it was tempting me with Bentleys / the entity of my soul is not sold on iPhone C technology or representing me / one kicked down in a motion / cult culture ain’t down to the potion / bolts rain down like Zeus in a motion / battery charge that large of emotion / check the components in this kid / blood skin bone no microchip / with a microphone and a light skinned bitch / no Tinder hoes no Plenty of Fish / God sent me through this so this is my toast / fuck what you live for if you is a ghost / I had a little now I got the most / straight from the gutter and back on the coast / ugh. OUTRO HOOK: I’m sick of living in my own world / I’m sick of living where it’s all about me every day / I’m looking for a resolution / I think I’m looking for some others who are feelin’ the same / It’s like my face is just a cellphone / you rub your finger and my soul is stolen locked up away / I’m sick of living in my own world / aren’t there some others out there who are looking feelin’ the same / I’m sick of living in my own world.

RUSHDEN: I used to be the guy that good girls would go for / pick you up at eight delighted at the front door / she was impressed how I dressed looking Roger Moore / Masarati colored white right by the shore / you’re never knowing how it goes ‘til your on the floor / covered in roses chocolate drops and you might score / but then I finally saw the light and it started war / when did these girls get sour nasty to the core / these days I’m doing my own thing and I won’t change / everything I bought back to the Bon Marche / back to the Bay / back to the pawn shop / if I see you on my street I’ma call the cops / exotic rugs and vacations are for me now / I’m glad I see now / how it has to be now / the Mike life is perfect / if you want a last time then I think we better curb it.

DIAMONDS: More authentic than a Rolex / jealous of where I get to go next / in a chaperoned Bertone with a Trojan Roman David complex, lately all I see is average rappers trying to meet their quotas / but if they focused on their craft perhaps they’d get to go and join the conquest / people out here taking pictures of their salads on vacation / while they could be trading stocks and bonds while travelling the nation / um / I don’t mean to brag um / listening to a Donald Fagen / in an Aston Marten Vanquish station-wagon / cannons blazin’. HOOK: Repeat

WHAT YOU'RE USED TO (KUTMASTA KURT REMIX) FT. KUTMASTA KURT, MOKA ONLY WRITTEN BY LORD DIAMONDS, MOKA ONLY, MICHAEL RUSHDEN PUBLISHED BY VOLUNTEER PUBLISHING (SOCAN) DIAMONDS: Better lean on back / it’s full throttle to the max in the 2 door jag / dipped in all black gleemin’ like an artifact / if you don’t see where were heading take your face out the map / ride the I-5 glidin’ south of beverly hills / with my hand up on the wheel why'll your coppin’ a feel / lavish living this a sealed deal / valet parking next to Fred Siegel’s step out in your heals and it’s all real. HOOK: But this can’t be what you’re used to / 5 star living with a view and it’s all new / but it can’t be what you’re used to / million dollar dreamin’ of a yacht and it comes true / but it can’t be what you’re used to / wines and fine dining by the beach out in Malibu / but it can’t be what you’re used to / naw / but it can’t be what you’re used to. RUSHDEN: Yo kids these days want material things / lucky for me it’s so sweet when I’m back on the scene / I hit the I-5 88 Ferrari / white convertible top down so let’s party / Kenwood deck with the gold-plated panel / in rotation with the distro on Clear Channel / five star living I’ve been booked with no hassle / signed a deal with the lord in his castle (real professional) / back for round two R&D It’s official / arriving in your sizzle in a Lamborghini missile / like a three year lease on the pent house level / never front or I’ll have to go ahead and blow the whistle / live the high life / flashin’ bright rights / from the Testarossa flamin’ out the tale pipes / most of these girls drive around in Isuzus / but this cant be what your used you. HOOK: Repeat SPOKEN BRIDGE: What’s going on my good man? / what’s up Diamonds? / I’m in the Lagonda / oh word up? / you wanna roll? / ya I’m up for a game of squash after this / let’s get this business done first / no man to the Sinclair / huh? / food court / oh you don’t wanna play squash you wanna eat squash / yes man yes / aight thats cool we can go eat some squash soup / I know a really cool deli around the corner. MOKA ONLY: Start from the Coup Dueck on Marine / shoot down to Blaine on the Skagit scene / I-5 cruisn’ Fiero green King County / evergreen pedal to the metal I speed / and I gallop through the Puyallup / Northgate Southgate Tacoma Mall / go to Tony Romas cuz the traffic crawls / after rush hour I hit the long hall / gotta see Diamonds tomorrow at three / Sunset & Crescent Heights Mcy the D’s / he’ll bring the briefcase full of the cheese so I can take it to my man Louie Devi / now he got the keys for the MR3 / can’t tell ya more that’s some secretsty / gotta be dipped in my Ralphy tee / Brooks Brothers loafers plus the Yves St. Laurent glasses to scoop the asses / but I’m on a job so the chicks can pass us / make the transaction it’s number the one / than pick up Rushden for a canyon run / Laurel / (oh) / oh / my gosh / (it’s unbelievable) / yeah. HOOK: Repeat SPOKEN OUTRO: You know that two story limousine looks nice but I’m gonna go call a cab / naw naw naw naw / a Maserati cab / this can’t be what you’re used to / ha / naw you ain’t seen nothin’ like this before / wow you guys got a hot tub in there huh? / naw you ain’t ready for this level of plavishness / what’s that? / that’s plush and lavish baby / ya know it.
