Inspired by the video games and action movie culture of the 80’s and 90’s, Rushden & Diamonds conceptual blend of hip-hop is here to take over the world, and they won't be taking any prisoners!

Starting off their careers as young Protégés to the legendary hip-hop producer Kutmasta Kurt(producer for The Beastie Boys, Linkin Park, Kool Keith), Rushden & Diamonds first got their start writing rhymes and making beats with the flavours of 80’s R&B and royal orchestral music. The duos early productions would eventually make their way onto R&D’s debut release “2010”, a critically acclaimed double album "Hip-Hopera" which featured the likes of MC Paul Barman, Moka Only, Kutmasta Kurt and more.

Since the release of their debut album, Rushden & Diamonds have toured in over 25 countries, rocked festivals for hundred's of thousands of people and have shared stages with the likes of Dr. Octagon, Dilated Peoples, Slum Village, Black Sheep, Retrogott (Germany)plus many others.

Aside from some notable features over the years with artists such as Dylan Ross(Rozz Dyliams), Moka Only(Ron Contour) and Kool Keith(Dr. Octagon), in 2012 Rushden & Diamonds created 2 original songs for Sega's cult PS3 and Xbox360 title Anarchy Reigns. The songs 'Fast Lane' and 'They Came From Underground' which were produced by acclaimed video game composer Naoto Tanaka(composer of the Mega Man X series) quickly became the soundtracks break out singles.

Now reemerging as seasoned veterans in the global underground hip-hop scene, Rushden & Diamonds have recently released their highly anticipated follow up to “2010” appropriately titled "2020". Be on the lookout this year as Rushden & Diamonds take to rocking a stage near you.
