"Dipset (Santana's Town)" Feat. Cam'ron
To kick this grand affair off we decided to start with one of Juelz Santana's earliest hits from his debut album From Me To U. "Dipset (Santana's Town)" is the perfect starting point because it serves as a significant milestone in the early stages of Santana, Cam'ron and The Diplomats careers. At the particular time this track dropped, Cam'ron and Juelz Santana were the dynamic duo of the industry and had already offered dazzling showings of their chemistry and skill with Cam'ron's hit singles "Hey Ma" and "Oh Boy" and The Diplomats were really starting to trend worldwide. With this track, the two rappers cemented their status as the next superstars of the game and ushered in a new sound that The Diplomats would soon make wildly famous.
This track is also a great introduction to Juelz Santana's signature flow that is riddled with clever word and phrase flips that utilize repetition and alliteration to create ultra entertaining bars worth quoting when those heated debates about what rappers are real lyricists arise. Peep his opening flow to the track and check out the vintage visuals for the song complete with oversized throwback jerseys and Santana's signature bandana alongside Cam'ron dipped in pink accents.
Yo I be with a gang a gangs
Who hang and bang
Hammers move, bangers bang
Damnit dude the game has changed
I got a hoe selection
A whole collection
A whole selection
Of my hoe collection
- Juelz Santana
