A full-fledged Diplomats reunion was supposed to in the cards at Hot 97’s Summer Jam concert last night (June 6) at the New Meadowlands Stadium in New Jersey, but forces beyond the Harlem crew’s control denied them the opportunity, according to Dipset’s own Freekey Zeekey.
“There’s no such thing as a half reunion,” Freekey told XXLMag.com backstage, with Cam’ron just a couple of feet away. “What happened is they didn’t let Jim in. I told Jim and Juelz we’ll meet up at the after party. [Jim’s] banned from, like, 90% of the venues in the tri-state area.”
Eminem didn’t lose a step lyrically on the album, but it felt a little lazy in parts. He has topics to talk about but it’s like he went through his Kanye 808’s and Heart break phase without the autotune and the good melody’s. He actually just threw any hook on some of these songs and spit to them. It’s inspiring though it shows lyrics can hold you down, he must have felt personal about some of these songs.
