It’s been nearly three years since the Diplomats announced their plans to release a reunion album Diplomatic Immunity 3 through Interscope. Now, in a recent interview with Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex via Nah Right, Dipset alum Juelz Santana speaks on the crew’s delayed third album.
Juelz explained that the hold up with the album is partly due to his own creative lag, saying that he wasn’t in the right musical space at the time of the announcement. Still, now that he’s returned to making music, Santana said fans can expect to hear from the Dips once again.
“I’m not going to even lie – when we put out the ‘Salute’ record, it was still at the time where I wasn’t doing a lot of music, period,” he said. “I wasn’t back in the zone that I needed to be in, musically…it’s not even about [the Diplomats] project; I had the same way like [when] I took a break from everything…I wasn’t really in my mojo to just sit down and just complete a Dipset project. In order to get it right, we’ve got to make it all the way right. That’s why I’m saying it is possible, because I know Cam is willing to do, I’m sure Jim is willing to do it. I’ve always been willing to do it; it was just about me getting my music mojo back.”
