Last week, March 25th, 2013 marked the 10 year anniversary of famed hip-hop group The Diplomats a.k.a. Dipset.  The Dipset crew (Cam'ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana, Freekey Zekey, Hell Rell, 40 Cal, J.R. Writer, and others...) have been one of the most influential groups in the history of hip-hop.  Dipset influenced hip-hop music in many ways; They pioneered modern-day artist-driven mixtapes.  They changed the face of rap fashion.  And they constantly introduced important new talent.  These influences as well as many others have embedded The Diplomats as one of the greatest hip-hop crews of all-time.  "In Flex We Trust" presented a 10 year anniversary reunion concert last week in New York City and cult-followers came in droves to see The Diplomats perform live at B.B. King's Blues Club and Grill.  Special guests included Waka Flocka and Lloyd Banks.  We have to give a big shout-out to our favorite Dipset member - J.R. Writer for doing his thing and shut'n it down and kill'n it with his performance ("Get'em" is still one of the greatest mixtape singles ever).  Highlights courtesy of Xclusives Zone Media can be seen above.  #ORGANIZEDGRIND
