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 Hell Rell quietly stealing one song per mixtape.) We heard their reunion track “Have My Money” last month, and now they’ve dropped another one called “Do Something” on the world. These guys sound way more grizzled and less energetic when they were running New York. But their playful goon charisma is still a glorious thing to hear, especially on a low-key insinuating beat like the one they have here. Listen below.
So is Funkmaster Flex just a full Diplomat now? Is that what’s happening?
