During the early 2000’s, The Diplomats were the first organized faction in hip-hop to release a mixtape as a collective unit. Prior to that, we never had anyone releasing promotional music for the streets, but more-so, just mixtape freestyles for various DJ’s across the country. There was never a Wu-Tang, Lox, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Dogg Pound, and UGK, (to name a few) mixtape that was released prior to the Dips.
We have to commend 50 Cent for influencing the game and using mixtapes more wisely after 50 Cent Is The Future, but the Dips were first out the gate with it, in traditional uptown trendsetter fashion. Along with DJ Kay Slay (giving the mixtapes that street stamp of approval), we witnessed some powerful music in the process leading up to whenever the group was preparing for a big drop. Without the Dips setting the tone in the game with the mixtapes, there probably wouldn’t be current projects from your favorite groups today (ie. Jet Life, Maybach Music Group, A$AP Mob, etc).
It’s been nearly 10 years since the dips have released an official mixtape, but we decided to pay homage to the group today, taking a trip back in time to the Diplomats and DJ Kay Slay series. The group was set to reunite in 2009 after their “Salute” single, but scheduling conflicts have caused them to hold off from delivering an organic project.
Can we get my man a new artwork team? Besides that, this new one from DJ Clue GOES. Grabbing the usual suspects, Future, Nicki Minaj and French Montana, even joined by a rare Juelz Santana sighting, the four of ‘em jump on some production from The Turn Up Team for a new banger. Brought to you by DJ Clue.
August Alsina is part of the new wave of young dope R&B artists on the scene, and today the Def Jam signee releases his highly anticipated mixtape The Product 2.

If you ain’t know know you know that today is the 10th anniversary of Dipset’s classic album Diplomatic Immunity. The album is indeed timeless and still sounds as amazing as when we first heard it a decade ago.

It’s a nightmare on O-Block (Bang Bang) as Fredo Santana morphs into “Fredo Kruger” to provide that scary site we’re used to seeing when we get some new 3Hunna music for our real comrades out there doing or when you’re in the wrong with them G.B.E. / O.T.F. boys. Luckily since you’re fans, you’ll never get caught in that crossfire as we’ll only get the scary site musically from Fredo as he prepares up a nice treat for the streets with this one. Features come from Future, Young Scooter, SD, Chief Keef, Lil Durk, Juelz Santana, Trouble, Alley Boy, Ballout, Soulja Boy, Tadoe, Gino Marley, Gino Marley and Blood Money; with the production side of things handled by Mike WiLL Made It, Young Chop (On Da Beat), Tarentino, Marvin Cruz, 12 Hunna, Dezzy, C Sick.

Violence.And.Drugs.Only was the next artist to stop by ThisIs50 and partake in their widely famous interview series.

Young Jack Thriller moved ahead to bring up the possibility of the rumored NYC supergroup forming along with himself, Lloyd Banks, Fabolous and Juelz Santana which he feels he doesn’t deserve to be in the group until he gets his weight up in the music game in the majors.

Although it’s being dubbed as a “one night only show,” we’re hopeful the most influential crew of the 2000s will reunite one more time for a new album now that they’ve ALL started 2013 with fresh material for the streets.
From starting “What’s Really Good,” to even them airbrush tees some of you would line up for at “Santana’s Town” with hood cats wearing pink with no shame, the Diplomats birthed some of the game in rap music that still lives today with the solo mixtape scene starting that with El Barrio’s own DJ Kay Slay in true Harlem U.S.A. trendsetter fashion.
