As it stands now, the project opens with a Juelz Santana intro and counts at least one feature from Belly with the mid-project cut "On God." The group's most recent studio release is the classic Diplomatic Immunity 2. The 2004 Koch release was followed by years of compilations, tapes, and one-off singles. When reached by Complex for additional comments on this latest Diplomats development, a rep for Jones said the new untitled project will be released this fall via Empire.
"When people see you're getting ready to be in a powerful position and aspire to be something successful, they take you for a joke…til they find out it's serious," Jones told Complex back in April when looking back at his extensive career, which also counts an extended run of solo releases—including this year's Wasted Talent—among its accomplishments. "I don't think people expected me to do no music or rapping or anything like that. So I understand why they'd take it a joke."
Tuesday, Jones dropped off the official video for the Wasted Talent cut "Living My Best Life" featuring Eric Bellinger:
Next month, Diplomats will hit Atlanta's A3C Festival alongside Talib Kweli, Wu-Tang Clan, Young M.A, Lil Wayne, Ghostface Killah, G Herbo, and many more.
