It's been 20 years since loose-knit NYC hip-hop crew D.I.T.C released "The Official Version", a vastly different version of their self-titled, Tommy Boy released debut album. As this reissue proves, it was arguably a superior set, with more inventive beats, more varied instrumentation and a couple of killer tracks that for one reason or another had been omitted from the Tommy Boy release. An all-star affair, the LP boasted beats from Diamond D, DJ Premier, Show, Lord Finesse and many more NYC hip-hop heavy hitters. It's perhaps for this reason that the set has lasted the test of time so well, as this essential anniversary reissue proves. If it's not in your collection already you should really cop a copy.
