4. JR Writer, “Jamaican Diplomocracy”
JR Writer

JR Writer is probably the most slept on Diplomat, a freestyle specialist who never quite scored a hit, even on Dip Set-friendly New York radio. But, as Writer says on the intro toย “Jamaican Diplomocracy,” “I kill my Jamaican shit,” and he proceeds to do just that, tearing his way through a sample of Bob Marley/The Wailers’ “Hypocrites.” A certified mixtape classic from the height of that form’s heyday.
