The Harlem collective is reportedly signing to Interscope Records, home to Dre’s Aftermath.
According to Dipset’s Juelz Santana and Freekey Zekey, the crew hasn’t inked anything yet , with Aftermath or Interscope, but they’re excited to have worked with the legendary producer. Jim Jones broke the news of Dipset working with Dre when he tweeted an image of them together in the studio.
“We ain’t gonna speak too tough — you seen the pictures,” Santana told MTV News. “We were in the studio with the big, big, the biggest homie of all, Dr. Dre. That’s it. We were in the studio with Dr. Dre. Dipset, all of us: me, Cam and Jim.”
The three rappers recently reunited after years of squabbling. At the 2010 BET Hip-Hop Awards over the weekend, they hit the stage for the first time since their reconciliation . The New York crew is also set to give a concert in their hometown next month sponsored by radio station Hot 97.
As a unit, the Diplomats were once signed to Def Jam, and then independent Koch Records (now E1 Entertainment). Santana was hush about Dipset’s plans for their next recording home.
“We’ll wait for all of us [to be] together to announce the move we’re making,” Juelz said. “We were all in the studio, though. Dre was great, awesome. It was a pleasure working with him, pleasure meeting him. Beautiful things are coming.”
