Dipset Uses Their Reunion Video To Show That They’ve Really Made Peace
Last month, Cam’ron and Jim Jones released the single “Once Upon A Time.” The song’s lyrics reveal that Dame Dash once confronted Harvey Weinstein about his behavior towards women 15 years ago. Dame has since clarified the report to recall a slightly different story. However, it is the symbolism of a reunited Dipset that serves as the moment’s biggest takeaway.
In the video, The Diplomats fly high in fashion and at full strength. Juelz Santana and Freekey Zekey appear in the soulful treatment (directed by Jim Jones and Kid Art). Group symbols such as pink bandanas, diamond logo medallions, stained glass, and party-like congregations around parked cars are on full display. A choir (sporting those rags and chains) sings its part of the signature Heatmakerz track. To take a phrase the Dips helped make famous: this video takes ’em to church.
After a pump-fake Interscope Records partnership some years back, this feels like the crew is in order, and ready for whatever (as a beef with Ma$e persists). This time, it’s a fully-independent operation (with Empire), much like the efforts from Killa Cam’, Jimmy, and Santana in their recent years apart.
