Solo career, 2008–presentIn November 2007, Diamond left Crime Mob to pursue a solo career. She was conflicted about going solo, feeling bad and feeling like she betrayed the group. She states:
|“||I feel like it’s the best decision to make because the choices and opportunities that was presented in front of me the whole time while I was in the group, I’m able to take that now and not feel bad about it or not feel like I’m being disloyal to the group.||”|
In 2010, Diamond appeared on the remix version of "My Chick Bad", a Ludacris single, along with Trina and Eve. 2010 summer saw the release of her debut single Lotta Money which managed to gain some attention on BET's 106 & Park.
