The co-founder of the R&B group The Internet begins the roll out of his debut album. When word got out that every member of the six person band is dropping a solo project, I was interested to hear what would come from a mainly musician dominated group.

Martains has been known to add his vocal abilities to many of The Internet’s work, but with the release of ‘Diamond In Da Ruff’ we can experience what makes him an integral part of the band. The new track, that will be included in the full project carries that same soul vibe as his group work but with a lot more emphasis on instrumentation, giving him a chance to flex his production skills.

[Verse 7: G Herbo, Dave East & Don Q ]
16, we stopped the competing and sold it in bundles
Money coming out of question who a 100 and humble
We dumping and rumble not the one to compare with these niggas
Fendi monster, my jacket looking like it’s staring at niggas

And my shoes Fendi like a mirror, denim, my jewels drippy
Cuban link with a few diamonds changes of cool 60

Brought my tour for 2 60, gotta front me 2 60
Just for us to start the promo
Before we even choose city
Off white jacket back block, I got your boo with me
Def Jam gave me a million already blew a 50

Too grippy, my mood switchy don’t move silly
I cruise Billy, foreing only, I got too picky

It’s survival of the fittest
Rental house ain’t tryin’ pitch it
I got powder for the sniffers
Just a rider on a mission
