Dipset : Your Top 5 Most Influential Hip Hop Group Period!
Dipset was, is and will forever be one of the most influential hip hop group that ever existed. I was watching the back and forth between Jim Jones and Cam’ron and I couldn’t help but reminisce about how the goold days. I was thinking about how amazing would it be for them to just put certain things on the side and just give us that good old dipset back.
Dipset: More Than Music
From our slangs, fashion tastes, what was blasting through our speakers on repeat and even a lof of the movies that we enjoyed coming up wouldn’t be possible if it wasn’t for Dipset. Juelz Santana, Jim Jones and especially Cam’ron wrote their own page of hip hop’s history; we can’t dispute that (even if you tried)
Today we will overview a different things that wouldn’t be the same if it wasn’t for Dipset and their early influences on fashion, music & trends at large.
1 Paid In Full The Movie
Paid in full is an all time classic as you know. Even though Cam’ron was the only member of dipset acting in the movie, it’s once again that whole ”Harlem vibe” that he brought to the movie that made it successful.
The movie is about the real life story of Alpo Martinez and his associates in the 80’s; so yes nobody than Cam’ron could’ve play it better. This is that same spirit, hustler mentality, ”Harlem state of mind” that Cam’ron and the whole dipset camp fed us for years and years.
Before you throw me all kind of tomatoes about who brought the bandanas to hip hop culture give a me second to provide you facts about bandanas at large. Bandanas are the type of accessories that might never go out of style regardless of the era you’re in, when people just thought they were fed up with it there is ALWAYS someone bringing it back (Thank you Asap Rocky).
You would lie to yourself if you don’t admit that at least once in your teenage life or maybe up to now, you tried to have your bandana tied perfectly to the side of your head like Juelz Santana did. Believe it or not but they hand bandanas EVERYWHERE, different colours, on their wrists, their head or neck and a thousand ways to rock them.
3 Pelle Pelle,Avirex Coats..& Literally All Their Coats!
Dipset had those kind of coats that would make you rush to your local urban boutiques only to come back with a frown when you figured out that you couldn’t get them. That ”happy 4th of july” outfit from Juelz santana is legendary at this point right?
4 Wearing Pink
Yes Cam’ron made it «cool» to wear pink whether you admit or not. As always when it comes to his fashion tastes, the dipset head honcho always go the EXTRA mile. The ”I really mean it” video was one of the best instrumental in hop hop’s history and also a HUGE fashion statement when Killa made his entrance.
Dipset has a flawless catalog of freestyles from their early beginning up to now. Dipset has made freestyle something entertainning to the point where they could be listened to as acutal songs.
This B.E.T Rapcity cypher is one of my all time favourite. I mean Juelz got busy as always, Cam’ron spitting while counting money is a classic and Jim Jones as a hype man is what puts it all together like always!
6 All The Artists They’ve Put On
You would be surprised how many artists got their first start either with dispet or by doing songs with them. From Chris Brown, Max B and especially the brigdge they made for southern artists like Paul Wall, T.I & The Game.
Dipset had that power to make everything stick to your head even when you didn’t want it to. You can definitely bring in all the illuminati theories here because of the way “Juelz Dip Dip, Santana Set Set” never left us since we were teenagers.
Everytime they did an appearance on tv, radio or video clips it mean’t something new was coming up. Slangs like : “You Mad?”, “No Homo”, “You Smell Me?”, “Ya Dig” & “Pause” were part of my day to day urban dictionnary (na mean).
8 Epic Instrumentals
If you’re a true dipset fan, regardless of hearing Juelz Santana, Jim Jones or Cam’ron’s voice at the beginning; you just know when it’s a dipset beat. They used to have those raw instrumentals that somehow someway always made you thought about “royalty” when you listen to them.
We all owe a standing ovation to their producers that made timeless classics like “Dipset Anthem”, “Oh Boy” or “I really mean it”.
9 The Legendary Rap Beefs
We’re not saying that they invented rap beefs since it’s been a part of hip hop culture forever.Our point here is the fact that in life there’s “beef” and there is a “Dipset beef”.
The Cam’ron/Jay-z and Roca-fella split saga is the best example of how far their beefs could go. Dipset made rap beef something funny with sketches, side jokes and Cam’ron’s master degree at throwing shade.
Remember what he said to Jay Z in “You Gotta Love It” :
How’s the king of New York rocking sandals with jeans? Open toe sandals with chancletas with jeans on How’s the king of New York rocking sandals with jeans and he 42 years old?

The End Of An Era And A New Start: Dress To Kill Magazine Goes Digital
A New World Order
I hate to break it down to you so abruptly but the world is changing, the world as we knew it, the way we consume, the way we think and even that good old Dress To Kill magazine is going through it.
As a young and inexperienced blogger back in 2016, I felt deep in my earth that paper was a dying medium and that the internet was about to carry the torch.
a hundreds of blog posts later, multiple attempts at building an online presence and literally trying to digitize the aesthetics & creativity I saw in magazines growing up.
I must admit 2 things: 1. what it takes to make fashion or information enjoyable is very hard to put together and 2 building an audience on or offline is a GREAT feat.
I grew to admire and respect my peers in traditional media because they made the most out of nothing at a time where Facebook and all those outlets were not a thing.
In case you didn’t know, Dress To Kill magazine is not your average magazine by any shape or form.
Promoting Canadian art and fashion from province to province was something seemingly unthinkable but they got it done.
From iconic covers with Lenny Kravitz and more iconic nights at le Mount Stephen to bring the whole industry under the same roof, DTK got it done.
Don’t take what I’m saying as a farewell note because today actually mark a rebirth for the publication.
Indeed, while the world was going all over the place, they went on a well thought out rebrand.
As you might have guessed, the biggest take away from this is the stoppage of the paper version of the magazine.
The focus is now digital but as I told you earlier, DTK doesn’t go halfway.
Their new platform will include an online boutique which once again is going to focus on shedding light on Canadian creators for men and women.
Do you think more magazines are going to make a full transition to digital?

We Ask A Personal Development Coach How To Overcome The Ins and Outs Of The Crisis
It’s all about your point of view
Everything You Need to Know Through The Lens Of A Personal Development Coach
I’m always amazed at how people like to stigmatize the role or relevance of a personal development coach. They’re quick to label it a scam, a fad, something based on nothing but little they did know, they’re coaches around the world who impacts millions and millions of people in a life changing way. I was looking for the equivalent of a Tony Robbins in Quebec, my research undoubtedly came back to the same name: Marc Dumaine.
Mr Dumaine is more than a personal development coach, he’s a man with a story.
Not your average story either. From overcoming alcohol and drug abuse to obtaining a MBA to running campaigns for some of the biggest corporations in this province. Here’s a man of many battles.
Honorable mention too, these days Marc is focused on creating an international platform to impact as many people he possibly can.
The bottom line is this. This personal development coach is not unfamiliar with trials and tribulations, changes and transitions.
That’s why to me, in a time like this where everything is doing a 180 degree, I had to pick his brain and ask him how can you and I get over.
In this Q&A, we indeed ask Marc Dumaine about several things such as how to bounce back from the crisis, his keys to success and much more.
QUESTIONS FOR MARC DUMAINE
#1 How did you figure yourself out as a future entrepreneur and what was the key factor that made you take that route?
I was always an artist at heart and found that I didn’t it in any mole. After completing my MBA, I realized that my biggest assets were my differences. I decided at that moment to stop following what people expected from me and launched my own business. To me being an entrepreneur is an art form in itself. I have never regretted that choice since I launched Asana Coaching 10 years ago.
#2 How can someone go from being self-employed to an entrepreneur making money without physically being there?
The internet is booming with opportunities right now ! Even with the COVID-19, there is a redefinition of the way people consume products and services ! It is a TIME for being creative and look into endless opportunities ! Get out of our comfort zone and start being inspired by people who are already doing it ! Then, build yourself a right game plan with an amazing branding, and you are all set for the best adventure of your life.
If you’re interested in seeing him in action, he’s doing a Facebook live tonight at 7:30 pm and if you’re looking for some light in these dark times, that’s the place to be.
