Killa Cam and his Diplomat outfit are grinders, constantly flooding the streets with new music through their mixtapes. So far, Cam and crew are going hard this year with Juelz Santana burning up the airwaves with his album “What the Games Been Missing”, and Cam’ Ron’s anticipated album “Killa Season” due before the summer. Bringing more music, The Dipset releases their new mixtape, “Who Else But Us?” as a prequel to the new album, “Cam’ Ron presents Dukedagod The Movement Moves On.”

“Who Else But Us” features the entire Diplomat, plus introduces A-Mafia and Tom Gist. The strongest cuts on the mixtape are Cam’ Ron’s “Suck It Or Not,” featuring an outstanding verse from Lil Wayne “I get head in the strangest places, two at the same time call it changing faces,” and “War” by Cam featuring Hell Rell, which features a hot chorus featuring a child saying “Dipset.” The other standout songs are J.R. Writer’s “Grill Em’ Remix,” which now features a welcome guest appearance by Cam and Hell Rell.

Diplomat newcomer Bezel outshines the other Dip-newbie’s 40 Cal, Tom Gist, and A-Mafia with his contributions to the mixtape. Bezel, the artist who provided the hook to Jim Jones “Certified Gangster” destroys tracks with one of the hardest flows and grimiest voices heard in a while. The self proclaimed Philadelphia Beast doesn’t disappoint with bars like “A new year, a few gears, I switch in a new coup, ain’t a troop here, the duke fear, test me I do shoot,” from his song “Get Money.”

Surprisingly, Juelz Santana has a weak showing on the mixtape with his remake of Lil’ Kim’s classic “No Time.” Juelz then follows up with the disappointing “Losing My Love,” where he speaks about losing his love for rap music. The concept is cool, but the track and the chorus along with Juelz’ uninspired lyrics make it fast forward material. Fortunately Jim Jones and female rapper Jha Jha spare the listener to only one song a piece.

If you’ve heard The Diplomat music before, you know what to expect. Straight gutter lyrics and hard beats for your car speakers courtesy of The Heatmakerz, besides the poor showing from Juelz Santana and Jim Jones, “Who Else But Us?” should help the Dipset movement to move on strong.
