Help me find a hip hop song with the lyric "black diamond, white gold".

This weekend, I was camping at Coachella with a friend, and we heard some folks near us playing a hip hop album we both really liked. It didn't occur to us to ask the people playing it what it was called 'cause we figured it would be easy to find online, but we're not having any luck!

The lyric I remember is "black diamond, white gold", and I'd describe the genre as hiphop with interesting melodic overtones and very smooth, almost swingy vocals.

Do you know this track or album?

Not so much with the hip hop, but 100 Monkeys' Black Diamond?

Sadly, no, that's not it!

On the off chance the lyric you remembered was actually slightly different (hey it happens), it could be K-OS - Black Ice. The lyric "black ice, white snow", occurs around 1:50.

In another case of possible misheard lyrics, Wiz Khalifa's "Black and Yellow"?

No diamonds, but John Robinson - Black Gold ??

or Ludacris - Diamond in the Back?

Could it have been "black diamonds and pearls"?

Nas feat. Lauryn Hill - If I Ruled the World has that lyric in the chorus.

None of those, though thank you all for the new music pointers!
