Harlem, NY, October 24, 2018 – The Apollo Theater is proud to present a special one night only concert featuring the return of hip-hop mega group and Harlem’s own The Diplomats, popularly known as Dipset as they reunite to launch a new album. The special event will take place on November 23 at 8 p.m.
Artists Cam’ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana and Freeky Zekey-collectively known as The Diplomats formed in 1997 in Harlem, NY. Following the success of Cam’ron’s solo album S.D.E., the group released what is now considered a classic album, Diplomatic Immunity in 2003. Pioneers in music distribution, known for their fashion forwardness and their unique way of approaching lyrics, the group went on to release more than 50 songs that cemented their place in hip-hop history. “They were a true grassroots movement, perhaps the last New York has seen. The crew’s success was built on a combination of mixtape grind, hit singles, street DVDs, and a unique aesthetic vision. Coming up at a time when Atlanta was ascendant, the crew managed to keep New York City a hub of street rap into the new decade.”- Complex.
“We are committed to celebrating the legacy of Black music and its effect on popular culture. Dipset is a perfect example of a group that started here in Harlem and made an impact on music that lasted decades,” said Kamilah Forbes, Apollo Theater’s Executive Producer.
