The Diplomats haven’t put out an official album since 2004’s Diplomatic Immunity 2. The individual members of the NYC Hip Hop collective — Cam’ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana and Freekey Zekey — have attempted to reunite over the years for an album but it never quite came to fruition.
Now, Jones has teased a tracklist to what appears to be a new Diplomats project. On Monday (September 10), he posted a photo of the handwritten tracklist to his Instagram account.
In the cut-off list, there are nine song titles and a partial view of who’s performing on each track. Belly is the only visible guest feature on the project.
The Diplomats signed a deal with Interscope in 2011 and promised a reunion album was on the way, but it never materialized. Two years later, Santana said it was finally coming, but again, nothing happened.
In 2013, the group reunited for a 10-year celebration of The Diplomats’ debut album, Diplomatic Immunity, and two years later, they debuted the “Have My Money” single on Funkmaster Flex’s Hot 97 show.
Last year, The Diplomats stopped by MTV’s TRL to promote a Dipset reunion concert. During the interview, Jones unveiled news of their next project.
“We working on a Dipset docu-EP right now,” he said. “So, it will be very dope — slash movie, slash seven songs.”
Perhaps this is what Dipset fans have been waiting for. Time will tell.
