Harlem’s Dipset Shuts Down The City, With Concert In Times Squares

Over this past weekend, I attended the Harlem Diplomats (Cam’ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana and Freekey Zekey), with special guests Vado and ASAP Rock concert at the Best Buy Theatre in Times Square, for the last show of Red Bull Music Academy’s Five Out Of Five tour of New York City’s five boroughs. The Harlem natives, who performed with a live band, opened-up the show a little after 9pm. Performing “What’s Really Good” and other tracks off their 2003’s certified gold album “Diplomatic Immunity.” They rocked the stage for a jammed pack wall-to-wall crowd for almost two hours.


After Dipset performed as a group, they all did their solo sets. Jim Jones kicked off his solo set, by performing some of his hits such as “Certified Gangsta,” “Baby Girl” “G’s Up,” and “Harlem.” During the middle of his set, Jones kept it all the way Harlem, by bringing out up & coming rapper ASAP Rocky, who performed his hit “Peso.” Jones closed his set with “Perfect Day.”

After Jones exited the stage, Juelz Santana opened-up his set by performing some of his biggest hits including “Shotta,” “Oh Yes,” “Mic Check,” “Back To The Crib,” “There It Go (The Whistle Song)” and “Clock Work.” Santana closed out his set with “Beamer, Benz or Bentley” (minus Lloyd Banks).

Cam’ron picked up where Juelz Santana left off. Cam kicked off his solo set by running through some of his hits such as “Down and Out,” “Wet Wipes,” and “I Used To Get It in Ohio.” During the middle of his set, Cam brought out fellow U.N. member Vado. The duo performed “Speakin In Tongues,” “We All Up In Here” and “Hey Muma.” The Harlem Diplomats all came back to the stage for one final performance with all of them together, before ending the show. The Harlemites closed out the show with “Salute” and “848.” Diplomatics  Immunity 3, coming soon.

Dipset’s New Album Dropping On Independence Day

Harlem’s Capo Jim Jones recently  revealed on MTV Rap Fix that the long-awaited Dipset reunion album will be dropping  this Independence Day, July 4th. Jones will also be dropping his new album Capo on April 5th. I can be wrong and don’t quote me on this but I think Jones is changing the name of his new album to Fly Guy. Dipset hasn’t released an official group LP since 2004’s Diplomatic Immunity 2. I am very interested in seeing what the mighty Dips has to offer this time around. How do you guys feel about the Dipset reunion LP?

Please check the four side banner ads on the left and take advantage of the exclusive offers.

As you guys should know by now, the Harlem Diplomats are back together. They are in the studio working on their reunion album. Since Cam’ron and Jim Jones released a video back in the summer saying , “the deal is almost done,” there has been many speculations about what label they are signing to.

During an interview with The Source magazine, Dipset’s President Freekey Zekey hinted that they are signing with Dr. Dre. This morning Jim Jones tweeted a picture of the Dipset in the studio with Dr. Dre saying “Just finished our 1st session wit Dr.Dre incredible.”

I guess this new Dipset reunion album is going to be “bigger than life.” Expect an announcement real soon.
