Local To Global: Nine Homegrown Hip-Hop Crews

The Diplomats

Key Members: Cam’ron, Jim Jones, Freeky Zekey, Juelz Santana, Hell Rell, 40 Cal, J.R. Writer and Vado.

Legacy: During the early 2000s, these Harlem high-rollers had everyone tickled pink. Dipset members were bright, boisterous and did whatever they pleased, endearing fans and Hip-Hop’s high-rollers along the way. When label issues came between childhood friendships and commercial prosperity though, bad blood left key members Killa Cam and Jim Jones separated, sending most members to seek solo success. And, while many welcomed their recent resurgence, the chemistry hasn’t resonated quite as well as it did in their heyday.

Highlights: Cam’Ron Feat. Juelz Santana – “Oh Boy,” Juelz Santana Feat. Cam’ron – “Santana’s Town (Dipset),” Jim Jones Feat. Cam’ron & Juelz Santana – “Crunk Muzik” & Jim Jones – “We Fly High”
