Phred Diamond (pronounced FRED DIAMOND) is a rare form of 3 cousins with 3 completely different views, personalities and philosophy’s on life hoping to change the world one verse at a time. “PHRED” is an acronym for "people-hardly-remember-everyone-dead”, using the fuel of their lost love ones as inspiration for every song as you can feel the emotions poured out into every verse chorus and hard thumping bass. They were first spotted in the Washington DC area. The group consists of Knox Diamond, Hill Will (rapper/producer) and ManiBoy (rapper/producer). Knox is Is known for his brain stomping witty lyrics make stomping witty lyrics while, Hill Will is known for his for his unorthodox breath-taking choruses and ManiBoy is known for his southern dialect and trunk banging bass. They are known as people’s first contact wit pre-classical music. At an undisclosed location on top of a dresser during their first attempt of rapping they became a group. Ever since then they have not been able to stop rapping but it wasn’t until June 4, 2010 they released their first mix tape entitled NOWALATERS. The undertone of the title is that that listeners will either become instant fans now or will become fans later overtime, but either way somehow Phred Diamond makes it into your speakers. Phred Diamond represents the DMV area (DC/MD/VA) a place which isn’t noticed in the music scene especially in rap/hip-hop genre, but it has too much life for no one to speak about it. “We make songs about our adventures and discoveries in our area”. Wipe the fries of the seat and get in. The music is designed to put you in a 99’ Crown Vic and take you on a tour of the DMV. “We aren’t here to lecture you down. We are just 3 average brothers with a gift for making music. If you can connect, then come and rock with us.”
