"What's happening at this point in my career defies logic," the the Bay Area rap forefather said in a press release sent to Billboard. "I still spit the realest and rawest shit of anyone in the rap game right now. The D-Boy Diary will lace the unlaced, will tutor the truant -- it's a guidebook for a street life."
