Diamonds & Freaks is the second studio album from producer/artist/visionary, BLK ODYSSY. Following up the critically acclaimed debut album, BLK VINTAGE, Diamonds & Freaks is a concept album that tells the story of a man enslaved by his lustful addictions. The record is presented as an erotic novel by Keisha Plum with narration by Bootsy Collins, both of whom offer a stark contradiction to the vivid and edgy content of the songs.
The record contains elements of soul, hip-hop, and pop—seamlessly blended to create a fresh and distinct sound true to BLK ODYSSY. Diamonds & Freaks showcases BLK ODYSSY’S talent for crafting colorful characters and vivid scenes to tell stories through music. The 15 track masterpiece features appearances by Cory Henry, Bootsy Collins, KIRBY, Rapsody, Eimaral Sol, Grace Sorensen, STOUT, & The Alchemist.
