The Apollo Theater Presents
Artists Cam'ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana and Freeky Zekey—collectively known as The Diplomats formed in 1997 in Harlem, NY. Following the success of Cam’ron’s solo album S.D.E., the group released what is now considered a classic album, Diplomatic Immunity in 2003. Pioneers in music distribution, known for their fashion forwardness and their unique way of approaching lyrics, the group went on to release more than 50 songs that cemented their place in hip-hop history.
“They were a true grassroots movement, perhaps the last New York has seen. The crew's success was built on a combination of mixtape grind, hit singles, street DVDs, and a unique aesthetic vision. Coming up at a time when Atlanta was ascendant, the crew managed to keep New York City a hub of street rap into the new decade.”- Complex.
Be the first to see The Diplomats live as they release their first new album in 14 years - Diplomatic Ties.
Premium tickets include a post-show meet and greet with the artists.
