"This is one of the sure shots of this year, Diverse steps out and w/ production from Madlib, Prefuse-73 & RJD2 and guest appearances from Vast Aire of Cannibal Ox, Jean Grae & Lyrics born this album is packed w/ non-stop action. After blazing tracks with the likes of Mos Def, Prefuse-73, RJD2 & countless others on critically acclaimed records like the Urban Renewal Program compilation, Prefuse-73's One Word Extinguisher, as well as his own EP Move and his bangin 12" Certified -- it's been 3 years of laying the groundwork for international recognition -- its quite likely that you've been waiting for this relentless artist to step out on his own and deliver his full-length testimony. Dropping on heads everywhere like a late-night wake-up call, One A.M walks the line of black psych-rock, hip-hop and tru school B-boying. It's quite simply something you have never heard before. With Jeff Parker of Tortoise, Rob Mazurek and K-Kruz (all of whom appear on One A.M.), Diverse embraces the town and the scene that has helped shape him as an artist. Reaching beyond the city of Chicago, the album features production with long-time collaborators RJD2 (who produced half the album) and Prefuse-73, as well as legendary hip-hop beat scientist Madlib. Joining Diverse on the MC tip on One A.M. is Lyrics Born (Latyrx), Jean Grae, Vast Aire (Cannibal Ox), and a rare vocal cameo by Prefuse-73 (SAY WHAT?? Prefuse doing back up vocals?). It's an album that fuses amazing talents, perspectives and energies. The results are next level."
