Review ·

Never the ones to ground themselves in reality, the Diplomats claim in their latest onslaught on the mixtape scene that they represent not just music but a burgeoning movement. As Cam'ron eloquently foreshadowed in his 2004 LP, Purple Haze, he is "moving the movement." But what exactly do the Diplomats stand for? Free Mumia Abul Jamal? Universal health care? Reparations?


Not quite. The Dipset "represents" the block, the hustlers, the pimps, D-boys and the gangstas. But what about the other thousands of Lamborghini-less residents of happy starving Harlem? Where do they fit in the movement?


For the most part, that question is left unanswered by the Dipset, and no solution seems in the horizon. Stacked with talent including Cam, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana and up-and-comers JR Writer, Hell Rell and 40 Cal, the crew is narrowly obsessed with a pot of cooked coke crack. Until they peak their heads out the kitchen, the Dips will be nothing more than music.
