      That surreal feeling of waiting to hear another new gang Starr track is honestly indescribable. The world lost a beautiful soul almost a decade ago, but we still got blessed with another masterpiece. Rip Guru you’ll never be forgotten 🙏🏻

        Like a freshly cut diamond
        Like a freshly cut diamond
        Diamonds are forever like family and loyalty
        Or real rap songs like C.R.E.A.M. or My Melody
        Diamonds are forever like my infinite thought
        Like respect in the hood that can't be bought
        Diamonds are forever like family and loyalty
        Or real rap songs like C.R.E.A.M. or My Melody
        Diamonds are forever like my infinite thought
        Like respect in the hood that can't be bought
        Word up, diamonds


        (Like a freshly cut diamond)
        Diamonds are forever like friends that'll kill for you
        Run up in a jewelry store, burglary, steal for you
        Bill with you, split the diamond into ice blue
        Thrice he tried to disrespect our kinship, I don't like you
        And now you axed out the fam'
        But I'm cashin' checks, with Premier on this jam
        Robin Leach, interviews on the beach
        When we shake hands, nothin' but ice on the reach
        And I teach Like the Rap Reverend Ike without the perm', I preach
        There's more you need to learn, I return for my streets
        Gainin' my wealth, trainin' myself
        For corny confrontation with haters who be playin' themselves
        Diamonds, I like my world of rap
        Your rhymin', hah, it's like a world of crap
        And a diamond is like a fly ass girl that's strapped
        And you can't beat that with a bat


        Diamonds are forever like family and loyalty
        Or real rap songs like C.R.E.A.M. or My Melody
        Diamonds are forever like my infinite thought
        Like respect in the hood that can't be bought
        Diamonds are forever like family and loyalty
        Or real rap songs like C.R.E.A.M. or My Melody
        Diamonds are forever like my infinite thought (Yeah)
        Like respect in the hood that can't be bought
        Word up, diamonds


        Diamonds (Diamonds), diamonds (Diamonds), yeah
        Pick up the pen, write down a sin, it's cleanse
        Lay that shit down, play it for friends
        Make a few M's, then do it again
        J. Cole, who'da thought you woulda been rhymin' with Ghost
        Guru flows forever like a diamond
        The most could never afford the precious jewels
        That's precisely why I'm blessin' you with clear-cut messages
        I'm destined to invest in urban sections where depression rules
        I hope to heal the destitute before I leave this vestibule
        Between the heavens and the seven circles
        Where some dead homies maybe rest, I plan to resurrect a few
        I press the truth against the naked devils
        Look at the youth just like a precious pebble
        Meant to be protected, mentally we let this
        Poison of Western philosophy make it sloppy
        We forgot we are the chosen
        From hip-hop to astronomy, they copy what we showed them
        Niggas be talkin' slick, but only try me over modems
        In person they starstruck, they hearts flutter
        I'm like the realest one you ever met
        If you don't feel this one, give it a sec'
        Go live a little, let the years pass
        Experience pain, watch the tears crash on to the floor
        Hurt brings wisdom
        Wisdom brings a whole 'nother sort of understandin'
        Diamonds only worth what we demandin', uh, uh
        And niggas payin' top-dollar
        Once upon a time I paid a 100 for mine, now I'm a lot smarter


        Diamonds are forever like family and loyalty
        Or real rap songs like C.R.E.A.M. or My Melody
        Diamonds are forever like my infinite thought
        Like respect in the hood that can't be bought
        Diamonds are forever like family and loyalty
        Or real rap songs like C.R.E.A.M. or My Melody
        Diamonds are forever like my infinite thought
        Like respect in the hood that can't be bought


        I rock diamonds that cut glass out of window panes
        Baldhead Slick blazing tracks when the indo's flame
        Rocks that bling, rocks that make them jock my team
        Rocks that shine, rocks that keep my hand on my nine
        Rocks that blind, make the High Rocks drop down
        One of a kind, niggas best jet from the spot when I cock mine
        Diamonds are like your man you always call fam'
        Diamonds are like your grandma you always call ma'am
        Diamonds are like having the whole world in your hand
        Diamonds are like the shows I ripped with no band
        Rockin' your knot, stoppin' your plot
        It's me, Baldhead Slick Duke, coppin' your block
        For you it's only pain, for me it's only gain
        Diamonds are like loyalty, iced out like royalty
        Diamonds are like my wifey, so sweet the way she spoils me
        (So good)


        Diamonds are forever like family and loyalty
        Or real rap songs like C.R.E.A.M. or My Melody
        Diamonds are forever like my infinite thought
        Like respect in the hood that can't be bought
        Diamonds are forever like family and loyalty
        Or real rap songs like C.R.E.A.M. or My Melody
        Diamonds are forever like my infinite thought
        Like respect in the hood that can't be bought
        Word up, diamonds
        (Like a freshly cut diamond)


        Rest in Peace Guru.
