The Diplomats, aka Dipset, played their 2nd NYC reunion show on Saturday 3/26. Last time it was at Hammerstein. This time it was at Best Buy Theater in Times Square where the Harlem crew of Cam'ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana, and Freekey Zeekey were joined by the MPC monster Araabmuzik, Maino, Vado and Lloyd Banks. Yodon reports that "After killing the stage as a group, they all did their solo sets. Cam'ron brought out Vado, Jim Jones brought out Maino and Juelz Santana brought out Lloyd Banks." Pictures from the show adorn this post. The group was also supposed to play a show one night earlier at Northern Lights in Clifton Park but that one was cancelled due to "contractual issues."
Next up, Kill Cam, the Capo, and Santana, head down to Texas next week for a pair of Dipset dates and then out to the West Coast to wrap up the reunion celebration... and hopefully put the finishing touches on their new Diplomatic Immunity LP soon thereafter. All dates and more pictures and some videos from the NYC show, below...
