Unknown T Shines On Debut Album 'Blood Diamond'

January 12, 2024

The road to Unknown T's debut album has been a long one, but today we finally get the 17 tracks of Blood Diamond.

The list of producers that contributed to the project is stellar—M1OnTheBeat, R14, Nostalgia, Emil and JAE5 are all credited as contributors to the album's broad soundscape. Featured artists include Nigerian rapper ODUMODUBLVCK, R&B talents Scribz Riley and Tianna Major9, fellow drillers Digga D and his 98s clique, as well as hip-hop heavyweights Knucks and Loyle Carner.

Like a lot of his contemporaries, T's moves in the last couple of years have hinted at a desire to break out beyond the confines of drill and between the broad palette of sounds and the range of artists he enlists here, this album does just that.

Unknown's baritone delivery and scatter-gun flow have been a staple in the game since his arrival in 2018, but his debut sees him push boundaries and evolve his sound.

Take it in below.
