Dipset ft. Cam’ron, Juelz Santana & Jim Jones - Salute
And now the moment everyone’s been anxiously waiting for! Ok, a lot of people. Ok, fine, some people – it’s a Dipset reunion! After ruling the charts in ’03 and ’04, Dipset fell apart, but major players Cam’ron, Jim Jones and Juelz Santana have put their beef aside and come together once again for the riding Salute. Lyrically this is more of less vintage Dipset: Jim Jones continues to improve, Cam’ron drops some not-even-remotely-family-friendly punchlines and Juelz closes things off with the smoothest verse of the three. Unfortunately, and I’ll try to be Camronish (I mean Diplomatic) about this, araabMUZIK puts together one of the most aggravating beats I’ve heard in a minute - it sounds like a malfunctioning fire alarm - but I’m trying not to let it damper the mood. Ultimately, as always, many will hate Salute, but longtime Dipset supporters should be able to forgive its flaws and turn the volume up. We can expect a reunion album from the new and impr…well, ne…well, Dipset soon, though when that will be and what it will be titled are still unknown.
