We’re roughly 24 hours into 2015, and this – to me – is some of the best music-related news of the year already.
Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex announced via the Instagram that The Diplomats – the original four of Cam’ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana and Freekey Zekey – will release a new mixtape later this year. To mark the occasion Cam, Jim, and Juelz will take over the radio station this Monday evening (January 5th) for five hours, debuting new music, freestyles and who knows what. All of this is apparently leading up to said new mixtape, which will involve DJ Khaled, Swizz Beatz and DJ Mustard in some capacity.
