Dipset

After rocking a star-studded show to a packed post-Thanksgiving house at Hammerstein, The Diplomats are back at it and will play Best Buy Theater on March 26, two days after they play the Trocadero in Philly. Tickets for the NYC show are currently on AmEx presale and go on regular sale at noon Friday (2/11). The Dipset is currently working on Diplomatic Immunity 3 which, according to the Boston Herald, is tentatively due on July 4th this year.

Meanwhile, the individual Diplomats have kept busy. Jim Jones will release CAPO on April 5th via E1 which will feature appearances from Raekwon (who plays MHoW soon), Snoop Dogg, Cam'ron, Juelz Santana, and others. Check out the director's cut of the first video from the LP, "Blow Your Smoke", available below.

Other recent news about Juelz Santana hasn't been quite as jovial:

[Juelz Santana] was hauled into jail Wednesday for weapons and drug charges following a raid on his New Jersey studio, Santana's World...

"It's about money. They don't care about the criminals, they want that money. They said, 'We gon' get him, he can get high bail.' Whether the charges stick or not, they gon' get their money," said Juelz, who was released on Thursday after posting $125,000 bail.

A January 20 raid on his studio turned up two loaded handguns, drug paraphernalia and 17 Ziploc bags of "a greenish brown vegetation, consistent with the appearance of Marijuana." The Dipset star has been charged with possession of a firearm and a controlled dangerous substance, possession of a handgun without having a permit, possession with intent to distribute a controlled dangerous substance and possession with intent to distribute a controlled dangerous substance within 1,000 feet of a school zone after police executed a 10-month-long investigation that led to the raid. (Juelz protégé and Skull Gang MC Hynief was arrested at the time of the bust). Despite the charges, Santana is adamant he wasn't involved in any illegal activity. -[MTV News]

Totally off topic but the last time I saw the The Diplomats, there was this amazingly annoying couple who were not only talking during the whole show but were talking about TMI info. The guy kept asking her "Do you like my seven and a half inches? Do you like my seven and a half inches? Is it the biggest you've ever had?" Yeah bro you're cool.

Bail is not a fine.
