On the introduction to his new track “Don’t Get Scared,” Damon Dash declares that “the Diplomats been loading up, my man Cam’s coming through like a superhero with the cape and all that…we vicious.” With the high-quality offerings from Cam’ron continuing to roll in as of recent as today and with Dash’s own solid new track “Don’t Get Scared” coming on its heels, Dash’s war cry is completely accurate.

“Don’t Get Scared” is a joint effort between Harlem’s newer class and old-but-still-thriving vanguard, with Jim Jones and Smoke DZA joining Damon Dash to spit as greasy as the back-kitchen of a grade “C” food joint. Producer Ben The Glorious Bastard creates a menacing, heavy sonic swamp for the NYC trio to spit their serpent-tongued speeches on, and “Don’t Get Scared” is a textbook example of how classically-styled NYC bangers can still shatter speakers twenty years after Ready to Die. Towards the end of the song, Damon Dash proclaims “Harlem stays together.” From the sound of these new tracks from long-time Harlemites, decades into the rap game that statement will still continue to ring true.
