Funkmaster Flex took to Instagram yesterday (January 1) to kick off the New Year right for fans of the Diplomats, sharing news of a new mixtape and brief reunion tour for the Harlem group:
Here's the caps-lock heavy and exclamation point punctuated caption that Flex shared:
"#DIPSET RADIO X CONCERTS X NEW MIXTAPE MADNESS!!!! I just spoke to @jimjonescapo x I just spoke to @Mr_Camron x I just spoke to @thejuelzsantana !!!!! These 3 men have put the bullshit aside and are ready to rock!!!! #STEPONE 7pm This Monday @Dipsetusa1997 take over @Hot97 for 5Hours!!!!!

See if you can parse your way through that to the main details: there will be a five stop tour hosted by Flex, and the new mixtape—which will also be hosted by Flex along with DJ Mustard, DJ Khaled and Swizz Beats—will be out after the tour.
As for the crew themselves, Jim Jones took to Instagram to confirm the announcement, adding that fellow Diplomat Freekey Zekey would also be joining:
"Exactly wht @djfunkflex said @mr_camron@thejuelzsantana @freekey730 #DipSet 4life it’s in out blood back to my 2015 work out," Jones wrote.
We'll learn more this coming Monday, January 5 when Dipset takes over Hot 97 for five hours starting at 7 p.m..
