Harlem rap collective, The Diplomats, have been extremely visible since their 2010 reconciliation. In addition to moving their operation to Interscope, the group has recorded tracks with Dr. Dre and are reportedly putting the finishing touches on an album featuring all Dip Set members. While the paperwork is being finished, the collective will set out on a nine-date, nationwide tour.
Newcomer Vado will also be joining in. In addition to fan favorites, the tour should also provide an opportunity for Jim Jones to further promote his upcoming album, Capo, which is scheduled for an April 5 release. More dates are expected to be announced in addition to the ones currently listed.
