The Doppelgangaz meet The Diplomats. Now repeat that ten times over. Anyway, the New York duo of The Doppelgangaz (Matter Ov Fact and EP) are linking up with Mr. Capo himself, Jim Jones, for “Jail Weight.” The track is set to appear on The Gangaz forthcoming project titled Parts Unknown. Jones and Gangaz together actually kinda works, even in spite of the initial “WTF” when seeing those two on the same track. Check out The Doppelgangaz’ “Jail Weight” after the jump.
Jim Jones links up with Trav for a new track entitled “Radio.” This isn’t the first time the two have been on a track together, you may remember Jones and Trav teaming up on “Can’t Tell Bout” and “Whole Thing.” Check out Jim Jones’ “Radio” after the jump.
In case you haven’t heard, The Diplomats are back. The return of OG Dipset members Jim Jones, Freekey Zeeky, and Juelz Santana together so far has been promising with the Harlem squadron dropping the awesome “Have My Money” loosie and now a gloomy, aggressive, and downright murderous freestyle over The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Victory.” Many have interpreted the lyrics as shots at JAY Z and his website, Life + Times. Listen to The Diplomats’ “Victory” freestyle after the jump.
When Dipset announced they’d be reuniting again and dropping a mixtape many, including myself, didn’t think much of it. It was a classic case of ‘I’ll believe it when I see it.’ And now, I am a believer as Dipset have shared a new track “Have My Money” on Funk Flex’s radio show. “Have My Money” features OG Dipset members Jim Jones, Freekey Zeeky, Juelz Santana, and of course Cam’ron. Listen to the new Dipset track after the jump!
Thanksgiving is here! Thanksgiving is here! But it’s not all fun and games and stuffing your face with food. While we sit comfortably in our humble abode with our loved ones, celebrating with a feast, there are those who go out and make sure to help those in need. Sadly, however, rappers aren’t exactly the first profession that’d cross your mind as being “helpful” as these are merely gangsters, drug dealers, and entertainers, right? Wrong. For example Birdman and Cash Money are participating in their 20th annual Turkey Giveaway this week. And that’s not all, as rappers like Jeezy, T.I., and Ludacris regularly find themselves helping local Atlanta natives enjoy their Thanksgiving as well. So, we here at iHipHop decided we’d attempt to dispel the myths of rappers being careless and lazy, and showcase their good deeds, by assembling a picture slideshow of them giving back on Thanksgiving. Enjoy and happy Thanksgiving!
Dipset’s Jim Jones has a new mixtape that just dropped and to promote the tape Capo released a video for “Still Repping” which features GS9 member Rowdy Rebel. The video also features Bobby Shmurda. Download the new mixtape We Own The Night Pt. 2: Memoirs of a Hustler and peep the vid after the jump.
Yesterday was the 10th Anniversary of Dipset’s Diplomatic Immunity, and I have to admit it had me feeling a little emotional, and nostalgic. Cam’ron’s Harlem group started an era and sound that could never be done again. Read More
