Cam’ron, Juelz Santana, Jim Jones, and Freaky Zekey together form The Diplomats, and the legendary Harlem rap outfit is back with a new single “Once Upon a Time.” Cam’ron and Jones handle verses, with a euphoric beat from the group’s go-to producers The Heatmakerz that floats and settles at the rapper’s feet like rose petals. The Diplomats previously reunited for 2015’s “Have My Money,” but the comeback doesn’t stop there: on November 21, Diplomats will play with A$AP Mob at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.

The glorious Harlem-based rap group, The Diplomats, are back with new music just days after reuniting in New York City after putting aside differences that separated the crew for years.
While the Dipset crew is comprised of core members Cam’ron, Jim Jones, Freekey Zekey and Juelz Santana who joined in 1999, their newly-dropped track, “Once Upon a Time,” only features its founders Jim Jones and Killa Cam.
