The Diplomats Are Working on New EP and Documentary
Speaking with the folks at MTV's newly relaunced TRL, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana and Freekey Zekey discussed things like enduring brotherhood and their return to music. Capo's the one who breaks the news. "We working on a Dipset docu-EP right now, so, it will be very dope—slash movie, slash seven songs," he says in front of the audience.
Cap goes on to say the Harlem-based collective is returning in order to deliver the sort of content he feels has been largely absent from the landscape of 2017 hip-hop.
"It's been a void in the music industry that hasn't been, know what I mean, captured in a long time. We represent a lot of things from [hood] politics, to hood savvy, to dope boy fly to staying fresh every day," Cap says. He's not hating, though. "The climate of the music and things like that—I love it. I love going to clubs and getting lit and everything, but it's a different type of music that you need when you hustling, and that's what we always represented."
Of the new project, Juelz says, "You know, we got a lot of relationship, so you never know who gon' end up on a couple of these tracks." Sounds legendary.
There's no word on when the Dipset EP and documentary will be headed our way, but if they capture the energy of their new song "Once Upon a Time" and their joint concert with A$AP Mob, they will both be things worth giving your undivided attention.
