The Diplomats, aka Dipset, have announced that they will release their first album in 14 years, Diplomatic Ties, on Thanksgiving (11/22). They’ll follow it up with a Black Friday concert at the Apollo Theatre the following day, and a documentary about the album the following week.
The rap group — which includes Cam’ron, Juelz Santana, Freekey Zekey, and Jim Jones — have reunited a couple of times over the years, but only recently started performing live together again. The last couple years have seen the release of some new one-offs, most recently “Stronger,” which appeared on the Uncle Drew soundtrack. Their last full-length album, Diplomatic Immunity 2, came out in 2004.
Jim Jones announced the album in an Instagram video post today. The teaser for the album includes a snippet of a new song called “Sauce Boyz.” Check it out below.
