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.
