10 Ways Dipset Changed Hip-Hop

Pretty spot on:

Quote
It's interesting to see the nostalgia and acclaim the group receives in retrospect; at the time, they were controversial, immoral, and divisive. The group's music was mercilessly lowbrow, but absurdist, artful, and hilarious.

They were a true grassroots movement, perhaps the last New York has seen. The crew's success was built on a combination of mixtape grind, hit singles, street DVDs, and a unique aesthetic vision. Coming up at a time when Atlanta was ascendant, the crew managed to keep New York City a hub of street rap into the new decade.

Some of that was dumb (fashion) but a lot of stuff I hadn't really considered as well.

They needed 10 pages to say they were innovative with their mixtapes and they were trendsetters with their fashion? Usually these complex list are dope but this one was a stretch.

But that quote where Jim Jones referred to himself as Jennifer Aniston and "them bitches are Lisa Kudrow" is fuckin hilarious.

Diplomatic Immunity Vol. 1

Cam'ron - Purple Haze

Juelz Santana - Back Like Cooked Crack

are 3 essential albums that'll give you an insight to what they're about.


Also this interview with the 3 core members is pretty hilarious.
