The series is heating up. Those DJ Clue tapes were like the golden ticket to providing fire for the streets. The kid Loso sounded like he was chomping at the bit to make a name for himself and he’s been killing the competition since. The title of the series includes the word ‘powerful’ so let’s set it off with the group that coined the phrase “POWERFUL MUSIC” – DIPSET
Why is we sugar coating the blog? We gon rap? Yeah, you can leave that page on right there.
Disclamer: Now that I’m psyched we can proceed!

#4 Diplomats on DJ Westwood – BBC Radio 1 (Live from Harlem)
Diplomats for those who don’t know were the hottest hip hop group out of the East Coast in the early to mid 2000’s. The boss was Cameron Giles, the underboss or Capo Jim Jones, Zeek was the President and the Prince was Juelz Santana. They hailed from Harlem, New York. An area famed for its long history of swagged out flamboyant individuals who came up from the “sKreets” to a life of greater financial freedoms.
“You people don’t know a damn thing about me, a piece a part, a hamstring about me, the streets my heart you can’t get it out me”
Santana is reveling in the mystique that his presence has created. By referencing anatomical structures such as hamstrings Santana is adding to the racing thoughts the fans have about him. The streets are his heart and they are mine but not in the criminal way. Rams draws inspiration from his old haunts in the inner city as they serve as a visual realisation that hard work does pay off. Even in a hotel suite in Dubai “you can’t get it out me”
You was selling out, I was selling homes!! Selling dreams to the phone, I can sell the tone! Plus a science lab, I mix mercurocome with silicone, fella in a vanilla cone!! In school he would play the recorder nowadays he works with Feds and he plays his recorder
Cam’Ron lyrically is breaking down what he used to do for an occupation whilst he did not attend school (he stayed the hella home). Cam took chemistry seriously as you can deduce and had his own science lab (statue of limitations is up) in the streets of Harlem. Whilst he was away from school he knew somebody that used to play the recorder, which is a fluted instrument for the mandem out there. The same guy then turned State witness and informed police about criminal activities. In other words a RAT BASTARD!!

What about Capo – Jim Jones?
Please excuse me if you will for passing on Jimmy’s hot 8 bars about showing devotion but this entry concerns Cam and Juelz really. Shout out to Jimmy though as the next time I get down in the Lords house I don’t want him to ‘slap the Kufi off’ my head.
(Dipset for all the fans that do not know were embroiled in a simmering feud with Hip Hop legend, Nasir Jones. Despite Jimmy and Nas sharing the same surname, Nas was on Jimmy’s “Kufi List”)
