Past members

The Diplomats, commonly known as Dipset, is an American hip hop group from Harlem, Manhattan, New York. It was formed in 1997 by childhood friends Cam'ron, Jim Jones and Freekey Zekey, all of whom grew up together in Harlem. In 1999, fellow Harlam-based rapper Juelz Santana joined the group.

In 2001, following Cam'ron's signing, the group secured a recording contract with Def Jam Recordings and Roc-A-Fella Records. They subsequently began recording their debut album, Diplomatic Immunity, and released it in March 2003. Following tensions and controversy between Cam'ron and Roc-A-Fella founder Jay-Z, the group severed ties with the labels and signed to independent record label Koch Records. The group released their second album, Diplomatic Immunity 2, in November 2004. After a hiatus because of artistic differences, in 2010 the original members began recording music together again and announced a reunion album. In February 2011, it was announced they had signed with Interscope Records, but left the label in 2013 with no releases on the label. The group is currently signed to E1 Music.
