Dipset will embark on a 5-stop club tour. The entire Dipset group will not only go on tour together, but they will also release a new mixtape. The Diplomats, also referred to as Dipset, was founded by Jim Jones and Cam’ron in 1997. The original group members were Cam’ron, Jim Jones, and Freekey Zekey. Rapper Juelz Santana joined Dipset in 1999.
Due to creative differences and personal rifts, Dipset parted ways in 2007. Most of the members released solo projects. New record labels and new cliques were also formed. The main feud was between the leaders of Dipset, Cam’ron and Jim Jones. Breaking all ties with Cam’ron, Jim Jones formed ByrdGang. Although Freekey Zeekey joined Jones’ ByrdGang, he also started his own record label, 730 Dips. Juelz Santana formed his Skull Gang clique, and signed an artist deal with Def Jam Records. Meanwhile, Cam’ron formed his group, the U.N, and Dipset West in 2009.
There was so much tension between the founders of Dipset, and it seemed a reunion was never going to happen. In 2010, both Jim Jones and Cam’ron shocked fans by ending their 3 year feud. In the summer of 2010, Dipset reunited on their Under Construction tour. They also released the single, “Salute.” For the past few years, Dipset has teased fans with the possibility of an album release. As of today, Dipset has not released a studio album since 2004. The announcement of a new mixtape is a step in the right direction.
