Black Diamond: also known (as "The Mateen’s Band", and the "West Afro East Band" ), is a group of American musicians from Downtown Bakersfield, California that formed in the late-1970s.[1] The band is primarily known for their addiction to gigs, and is recognized for the funk,   soul, hip hop, and reggae music they composed. The band is also remembered for the remixes they did of popular top 40 songs which mainly consist of funk, and dub, hits they performed (as a cover band), before they began composing, producing, recording, and performing their own original material at music venues, such as Universities, pubs, club (organization's), night clubs, hotel partys, and parks, during the late 1970s, the 1980s, and 1990s. The picture to the computer left in figure 1.1, dates back to the same time period (as The Sugarhill Gang), and around the time King Tim & The Fatback Band released ("Personality Jockey"). Which is often considered to be the first recorded commercial released "Funk-Rap" and Hip Hop single that marked the beginning of the rap industry. Before Dr Dre's group the World Class Wreckin' Cru, Electro funk, and Electro-hop existed. The band, is also credited for the performance they did at CSUB "California State University of Bakersfield," called "Hey Deejay..Were You Playin With Em," and for the "Jamaican tour" they did in Montego Bay as members of the "Jamaicans Musicians Union," with international Jamaican, Rocksteady, and ska stars such as Freddie McGregor, and Judy Mowatt in the late 1970s.
