Oh boy. Haven’t had a reason to post about the Harlem Diplomats in some time. But here we are. Looks like the Theme to this year’s PAID DUES INDEPENDENT HIP HOP FESTIVAL is crews. Dipset, Living Legends, and Heiro have been announced as performers at Paid Dues.
Previously it was announced that Wu-Tang Clan & Odd Future were headlining the annual festival put together by Murs & the Guerilla Union in San Bernardino, CA.
Other line-up additions announced today were Kendrick Lamar, DJ Quik, Psycho Realm and Dilated Peoples. Buy Tickets here.
So far performing at Saturday, April 7 at Southern California’s NOS Events Center:
PAID DUES Line-Up
Dipset (Cam’ron + Jim Jones + Juelz Santana + Freeky Zekey)
More to be announced
Well, I guess my theory that Dipset will be part of a new launch of Roc-a-fella is completely off. It looks likes rumors of Dipset on being on Interscope might be a reality?
Jim Jones tweeted today that they just got out of the studio with Dr. Dre?
interesting that appherently as rich as Dre is, he only owns one Nautica shirt, and wore it to both Jay-z and Dipset record sessions?
Can I kick it?
ROC we running this rap shit…now…this is purely speculation but…After Dipset came and dissed Kanye over his own beat last week.
And awhile back Jay-z came out with a Creative Control mixtape which raised eyebrows because thats the name of Dame Dash’s video brand. This came on the heels of Dame Dash boasting he was going to restart Roc-a-Fella records..
Like I said this is speculation but Freeway and Stalley are both down with Dame Dash so perhaps this a foreshadowing of a another Dame vs. Jay campaign?
Both Curren$y’s Pilottalk and Ski Beatz, 24 Hour Karate School(which dropped today minus any Mos Def involvement ) are said to be on Roc-a-Fella but the spine on the CD says DD172. So Dame Dash hasn’t fully jumped in the Roc-a-Fella takeover, yet.
My guess is that they are gonna wait for the new Dipset album to do that.
Is this foreshadowing or just rappers having fun with an instrumental?
In fairness beyond a reasonable doubt it has to be noted that neither rapper dissed Jay.
And i bumped into Free, Stalley and Rashad after the show, and beef with Jay was not the topic of conversation at all.
Stalley’s main concern was that it would be noted that he was freestyling and not kicking a written.
And Rashad and I just talked about him, and Stalley’s upcoming (((ITM))) release.
But Free did have everyone throw the ROC sign up. And it wasn’t for Jay-z’s Roc Nation label.
Whatever the case, here are Stalley and Freeway freestyling over Jay-z’s infamous diss cut “Takeover” here in Columbus,Ohio.
Or maybe none of this means anything, and the true Columbus story is that Freeway is shouting out both ROC and RSE(Rhymesayers Entertainment) home of the Al Shepard.

A few weeks ago we celebrated the 4th annual Daymon Day here in Columbus. We had a basketball tourney, tribute mural, emcee battle, parade and a rowdy dance party. We got our Rucker park on and then brought it into the streets.
For those that aren’t familar with Daymon Day but like things perhaps reading this article before or after viewing the following videos and pictures might give you some background info.
This video shot by A.J.(i think) shows the parade.
Watch it if you think marching 300 plus people in the middle of the road to Black Sabbath, Dilla, Cam’ron, M.O.P. , DJ Przm, Camu Tao, Jim Jones,Pharoah Monche and Racist Joe instrumentals to honor their fallen loved ones on an OSU gameday sounds interesting.

Dipset shows in Columbus, and Jim Jones in paticular were always an interesting spectacle throughout the duration of the crews artist thug -in-residency here in the C-O because there was always an feeling in the air that admidst that there may be some sort of animosity in the room.
witnessing what maybe the source of stress in jim jones life after the jump
Looks like graffiti writers fucking with Dipset is not just an Ohio thing. The homie Wands sent me this wall by Sest ID repping for Cam’s new album “Crime Pays” out in Los Angeles.
After the jump peep footage of Bucket doing a Cali freeway spot in L.A. with “Reppin Time” by Jim Jones in the background. Continue reading
