NEW YORK, NY–(rushprews)–03/03/2007 — Diplomats VP of A&R, DukeDaGod, is set to drop his new album “More Than Music, Vol. 2” on Diplomats Records/KOCH Records on April 24th, 2007.
Â Known as King of the Mixtapes, DukeDaGod, from an A&R standpoint, was also one of the top charted artists in 2006 because of his work with the Diplomats. This new follow-up to “More Than Music, Vol. 1” comes at a time when the Dipset’s profile on the streets has never been higher.

Dipset is back with their trademark street anthems, hard-knocking production, and cocky swagger that has propelled them to sales of over 3 million albums collectively. This Harlem-bred crew has been heralded by many as a modern-day Wu-Tang Clan; in recent years, Dipset has become synonymous with street culture, leading the trends in rap music, hip hop slang and urban fashion. Their influence has increasingly grown into a movement, with Cam’ron, Jim Jones and Juelz Santana leading the charge.
DukeDaGod offers, “Since the last time I brought you ‘More Than Music [Vol. 1],’ the crew has grown a lot, picked up more fans and our movement has become stronger. Now I got the task and the opportunity to show just how far we’ve come. Our movement has grown each day and enables us to be young executives while at the same time lets us create music for the streets that mainstream fans will accept. On this new album, be prepared to take a walk through Harlem with the Dipset and know why we are #1 in the streets.”
The album’s first single and title track “More Than Music” will feature DukeDaGod, Juelz Santana, and Hell Rell. The track is being serviced to radio now.
