The Diplomats
The Diplomats

Before the Diplomats hit the stage, the DJ treated the highly energized crowd to a mix of current hits and classics - shouting out the late, great Harlem emcee Big L while mixing it up with hits by Rick Ross and Meek Mill. Once the Diplomats hit the stage, the crowd's energy level soared, chants of "Dipset!" accompanying the Diplomats as they performed songs like "Bout It Bout It Pt. 3," "Ground Zero" and "I'm Ready" . Instead of performing Diplomatic Immunity in its entirely as a group, the Diplomats split up and every member performed a solo set, revealing one of the deepest catalog of hits hip-hop has to offer. -[Stupid Dope]
During those non-Diplomats sets at Best Buy Theater on 9/30, Jim Jones, Juelz and Cam all performed their solo material, bringing guests like Vado and ASAP Rocky to perform tracks from Gunz & Butta and the forthcoming Live.Love.A$AP respectively. Despite the billing as "Diplomatic Immunity in its entirety" the show seemed to be laid out more like a conventional Dipset show between the individual sets and the performance of only part of the advertised LP.

I would love for DipSet to make a resurgence to their 2003/2004 levels, but I just find it hard to believe that they're that focused. How long has it been since the last decent material out of Juelz? 5 years?

And, now that AraaabMuzik is a regular performer now, I don't even know if they've got good production in the can. The whole thing just seems unlikely. That being said, any opportunity to hear "DipSet Anthem" in public should be leapt at.

I'm not surprised that they didnt do Diplomatic Immunity in its entirety. Most hip hop shows have no sense of order, or dilligence for that matter.

I saw Styles P's album release at B.B.'s last night, and it was a weed-filled, drunken night (for both the performers and the crowd). At least we got Busta though, and Jada and Sheek Louch wound up performing all night, so it was basically a Lox show.

12:10 - most of them are banal, but if you ever see a good one, a real good one, it is pretty amazing. When the MC and the DJ are locked in, and they are freestyling, it is a wonder to behold.

I wasn't at this one so I can't tell ya if this is such a one.
