Gianni Lee and Mike Blud breakdown the seminal album into its component parts.
Last year, Babylon Cartel’s Gianni Lee and Mike Blud assembled good kid, m.A.A.d City – The Samples, which is exactly what it sounds like. Now, the pair have done the same thing to celebrate the tenth anniversary of The Diplomats’ Diplomatic Immunity (way to make us feel old, guys).
This two-disc sets roughly matches up to Diplomatic Immunity and includes all the classic soul records (e.g. The Commodores and the O’Jays) that producers like Just Blaze and Heatmakerz relied on for the majority of the album; the tracklist is below.
