Diamonds on My Neck Wikipedia
"Diamonds on My Neck" is a song by American hip hop recording artist Smitty, released under J Records on July 5, 2005, as his debut single. The song, co-written and produced by Swizz Beatz, was set to be the first single from Smitty's planned debut album Life of a Troubled Child. The single was released in 2005 to moderate success, charting at #89 on the Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. The album was expected to drop shortly after the single but was ultimately shelved.
The song samples the hook of "Dangerous MC's", as performed by The Notorious B.I.G.. The official remix was officially released on November 5, 2011 and features fellow American rappers Lil' Wayne and Twista. The song's music video was directed by Hype Williams.
