BUILT THIS CITY
If the Diplomats—for tonight’s purposes that’s Harlem rappers Cam’ron, Juelz Santana, Jim Jones, and Freekey Zeekey—celebrated every anniversary, they’d be performing shows like this every week. For half a decade, the group’s music, filled with streetwise tongue twisters and soul-sampling crescendos, ruled New York: While at one corner you might have found an enterprising small business owner attempting to hawk the group’s latest mixtape, at the next you’d be passed by a car giving the entire block a free listen. Tonight, for the sake of both convenience and still-played jams like “Dipset Anthem” and “I Really Mean It,” the group heads to B.B. King’s to honor the decade that’s passed since their joint Diplomatic Immunity double-album.
