Diamond revealed that on her new street LP collaborations with Verse Simmons and Keri Hilson are on the new project, which is tentatively set to be released July 4th. Diamond also revealed that collaborations with Eve and Missy Elliott are a go for her long-awaited debut album. Read what Diamond had to say y’all!

On her new street LP “The Young Life” : “I got a lot of features on it: I got Verse Simmons on it, I got Keri Hilson on it,” Diamond tells BET.com. “The music resembles just being free-spirited and life at age 24 for a female. It’s beautiful because I had to find that balance between showing my growth and still keeping it hood, and that sassiness that everybody fell in love with. I love it.”

On her debut album : “I’ve been working with Missy Elliott and Eve,” she says of her debut album. “I’m actually trying to release the album by the third quarter, but it’s looking like its going to be next year, so that’s why now we’re just releasing Street Life and continuing to build up the buzz into my album.”

On her other ventures : “I have a lipstick deal that I just endorsed, and I’m sure by the time I do press on BET Awards red carpet I can announce who it’s with,” she boasts. “I did a television series called The Lick based out of Miami with a lot of great actors — Clifton Powell, just to name one.”

On other female rappers : “I just think that we need more women, period,” Diamond says. “Whatever [Nicki’s] doing, I’m sure that some females out here can relate to her or whatever message she putting into her music. I’m sure it’s other women that feel like, Hey we’re over here, we don’t relate to y’all — we need somebody else. And that’s [where] you have wonderful people like Azealia Banks and Iggy Azalea come in. I just think the more the merrier.”
