Dipset Reunion Tickets
When the Movement hit the streets in the early 2000s, it was impossible not to catch the infectious hip hop beat of The Diplomats. And after a hiatus of a few long years, during which the streets have yearned for another dose of the no holds barred music, the Dipset (as they are known) have returned. What’s more is that they are returning to their stomping ground, New York City. The Harlem based hip hop act’s return to mainstream has sent fans scurrying for Dipset Reunion tickets. Cameron Giles (known as Cam’ron) & Jim Jones started out the band in 1997, along with Harlem friend Freekey Zekey. Juelz Santana later joined the Dipset lineup, & the group rose to critical acclaim in the early 2000s, before contractual issues & artistic disagreements created a rift between the founders. Jones & Cam’ron have patched things up recently, returning to recording, & the barrage of fearless diatribe is set to return with the Dipset Reunion.

Dipset was one of the leading exponents of hip hop at the turn of the century. Hip hop’s major components include rapping (at which all the Dipset members are adept), DJing/scratching, sampling & beatboxing. The sampling is synthesized, taking a song loop & mixing it with others to create an entirely new product, while beatboxing involves vocal percussion. While hip hop’s roots lay in the Bronx, Dipset emerged from the culturally progressive black populace of Harlem in nearby Manhattan borough. Cam’ron had already built a head of steam as a rapper on the New York scene, & even impressed the likes of Notorious B.I.G, who helped him sign on to Epic Records. His cousin, Freekey Zekey (Ezekiel Giles) joined him, along with his background hype-man, Jim Jones, on the album S.D.E (Sports, Drugs & Entertainment) in 2000. S.D.E also featured a collaborative track with fellow Harlem rapper Juelz Santana, & the quartet soon became widely recognized as The Diplomats. Dipset became a phenomenon with their aggressive rapping, & built a steady fan following. All four initially signed to Roc-A-Fella Records till 2004, after which they have been signed to their own Diplomats Records. They all collaborated on a number of tracks, making Cam’ron’s Come Home with me a runaway success before deciding to launch the group’s debut album Diplomatic Immunity in 2003. It was a hot release & sparked further popularity. By the time the follow-up album Diplomatic Immunity 2 came out, notable Harlem rappers Hell Rell, 40 Cal, & J. R. Writer had joined Dipset. But things soon got dirty as the lack of focus from band members irked Santana, who sold his contract to Def Jam Records for $2 million. That followed a protracted bust-up between Cam’ron & Jones. Dipset eventually disbanded in 2008, with Santana going solo & also starting Skull Gang. Jones began ByrdGang, which also included Freeky Zekey, while Cam’ron teamed up with breakout hip hop singer Vado to make UN (Us Now). After a long period of misunderstanding, Cam’ron & Jones resumed talking earlier this year. The duo is now set to reunite with Santana & welcome Vado into Dipset for the band’s reunion concerts.
“What Means the World to you” & “My Hood” became instant hits off S.D.E, with the album reaching #14 on the Billboard 200, & the dizzy heights of #2 on the Top R&B albums charts. Cam’ron’s Come Home with me sold 226,000 copies in its first week, peaking at #1 on the Billboard Hot 200. Collaborations with other Dipset members & DJs were prominent. The stellar track “Oh Boy” topped the R& Charts for five straight weeks, while “Hey Ma” became his biggest hit. Diplomatic Immunity was certified gold & spawned “Dipset Anthem” & “Ground Zero”. Hell Rell, 40 Cal & J. R. Writer all contributed to the lukewarm success of Diplomatic Immunity 2. The Dipset Reunion has seen a video for “Salute” released successfully so far. Dipset carved out a reputation as the bad boys of New York’s rap scene, with their high-octane shows & charged vocals, not mincing words when “dissing” rivals on stage. As a result, Dipset have a hardcore dedicated fan following. Dipset Reunion tickets holders will be flocking to the Hammerstein Ballroom for the Hot 97 arranged event. Dipset’s angst-ridden rap has amassed a large following, who not enjoy the band’s music, but also idolize its lifestyle & carefree message. New Yorkers will be out en masse, armed with Dipset Reunion tickets, to welcome them back into the fold
