1. Diplomats, “Dipset Anthem”
DipSet in Harlem

This is the king of all Dip Set tunes, the Harlem crew’s theme music, not to mention its first single as a group. Fittingly it’s built from some reggae, specifically the arresting intro from Sanchez’s “One In a Million,” turned into a high-energy crunk anthem by The Heatmakerz. It’s a flip so classic that we named it #1 on our breakdown of the Toppa Top 10 reggae samples in rap.
