After reuniting last month for their new song “Once Upon a Time,” The Diplomats are back again, this time, with the video for the single.
Directed by Kid Art and Jim Jones, the visuals kick off with an all-female choir sporting pink bandanas. A distress signal featuring the Dipset logo is then shown in the sky before the Harlem crew appears on the screen. While only Cam’ron and Jones rap on the song, Juelz Santana and Freekey Zekey also appear in the video.
While Dipset hasn’t put out a studio album since 2004’s Diplomatic Immunity 2, the group recently revealed they’re working on a new EP. Appearing on MTV’s TRL, Jones said, “We working on a Dipset docu-EP right now, so, it will be very dope—slash movie, slash seven songs.”
Capo also discussed the group’s return, saying the group came back to deliver the sort of content missing from hip-hop today. “It’s been a void in the music industry that hasn’t been, know what I mean, captured in a long time,” said Jones.
“We represent a lot of things from [hood] politics, to hood savvy, to dope boy fly to staying fresh every day,” Capo added. “The climate of the music and things like that—I love it. I love going to clubs and getting lit and everything, but it’s a different type of music that you need when you hustling, and that’s what we always represented.”
