Dipset – “Have My Money” Video

Harlem rap crew the Diplomats (who can't seem to decide if "Dipset" is their official name or their nickname or what now) are back together and about to head out on tour. On the eve of their first trek together in forever, they've dropped a video for the comeback single "Have My Money." Clifton BellMore »

Watch Dipset Kick Off Their Reunion Tour In NYC

The four core members of the Diplomats crew kicked off their reunion tour in New York City last night. Cam'ron, Juelz Santana, Jim Jones, and Freaky Zekey all took the stage at the B.B. King Blues Club -- just a few dozen blocks from their old stomping grounds in Harlem -- after a long DJ… More »

Dipset – “Do Something”

The reunited four core members from Harlem's great Diplomats crew -- Cam'ron, Juelz Santana, Jim Jones, Freaky Zekey -- are back together and about to head out on tour. (For my money, it won't be a full Dipset reunion until you've got, like, 40 Cal popping in for a verse that nobody asked for, or… More »

Dipset Diss Jay Z In Light Of Funkmaster Flex Rant

During his Hot 97 radio show on Thursday, Funkmaster Flex called Jay Z's Life + Times website "trash" after they apparently reached out to him to do an interview about his role in the Dipset reunion. The Diplomats have been beefing with Jay Z's camp for years, and there's supposedly a ban on any Dipset… More »

Cam’ron – “C.W.F.U.” (Feat. Jim Jones & Hell Rell) (Prod. AraabMuzik)

Cam'ron kept making good music for years after his Dipset crew fell apart, and a big part of the reason was his association with the Providence producer AraabMuzik, whose MPC onslaughts had a grandeur all their own. Araab is a dance-music star now, but he's still cool with Cam. And now that Cam is once… More »

A-Trak – “Piss Test Remix” Video (Feat. Juicy J, Jim Jones, Flatbush Zombies, El-P & Flosstradamus)

In assembling the remix for his awesomely ignorant Juicy J/Danny Brown drug-rap throwdown "Piss Test," dance-rap baron A-Trak recruited a deep, wide, and fascinating lineup of collaborators. In director Shomi Patwary's new video for the remix, almost all of them show up, looking blitzed out of their minds on one substance or another, while the… More »

A-Trak – “Piss Test” Remix (Feat. Juicy J, Jim Jones, Flatbush Zombies, El-P & Flostradamus)

Earlier this year, A-Trak released his single "Piss Test," a dance-inflected drug-rap banger that featured Danny Brown and Juicy J. And now, on the Fool's Gold compilation Loosies, A-Trak gives us the remix. It keeps Juicy J's hook intact, gives the best a tense and squelching workover from production duo Flosstradamus, and adds verse from… More »

Azealia Banks – “Succubi”

For such a new rap-scene face, Azealia Banks certainly loves throwing darts at her more-established forbears. She's had a ton of icy words for T.I. already, and on her new song "Succubi," Banks throws snarls at Dipset capo and fellow Harlem native Jim Jones. (They'd already been Twitter-beefing over which of them called him/herself a… More »

Uncle Murda – “Warning (Remix)” (Feat. French Montana, Jadakiss, Styles P, Jim Jones, Vado & Cam’ron)

All you really need to know about this posse cut in in this Cam'ron line: "SMACK THE SHIT OUT YOUR NEIGHBOR / SMACK THE SHIT OUT THE MAYOR / SMACK THE SHIT OUT YOUR PREGNANT BABY MOM WHILE SHE IN LABOR." Also, nobody rips tag-team verses anymore the way Jada and Styles do here. Song… More »

New Indie Rock Christmas Songs For 2010

Every blog does a Christmas mix, so here's ours, with a small twist: All of these tracks are new for this year Xmas songs, not the classics or Sufjan leftovers. I've also included streams for charity singles, Christmas-related music videos, and other new holiday bits (with links, where applicable, to download the rest of the… More »

New Blakroc – “Ain’t Nothing Like You (Hoochie Coo)”

The Black Keys recruited quite a crew for their Damon Dash-spearheaded hip-hop project Blakroc. Mos Def, Q-Tip, RZA, Jim Jones, Raekwon, Ludacris, and the ghost of ODB all appear. Hear a cut and look for the LP 11/27 AKA Black Friday. More »
