One of my favorite breaks is that "Diamond in the Back" break, which for years I had been under the mistaken impression was from a Curtis Mayfield song. For a while there it seemed to be a requirement that if you were a rapper from Compton you had to put out at least one song using the sample, with the most notable examples coming from King Tee and N.W.A.. I had never heard the above clip from fellow Comptonite Fo' Clips until someone posted it on Facebook. In fact I had never heard of Fo' Clips Eclipse at all before today, perhaps because Clips, a member of the Kelly Park Compton Crips, was killed in a drive-by shortly before the release of his one and only album.
