If you didn’t know, Cormega is a hip hop artist that could be classified as “a rapper’s rapper”. Even prior to his deal with Def Jam Records in the late ’90s and his short stint with super group The Firm (which featured Nas, AZ, and Foxy Brown. Nature replaced Cormega after his departure from the group), the Queensbridge hustler turned rapper was regarded by many as the best out of the same neighborhood that produced the likes of Nas, Mobb Deep, MC Shan, and Roxane Shante. Over the years, Mega has has continued to work independently and solidify himself as solid emcee.
Going into the new year, Cormega offers up his latest project “Mega”. With 5 new tracks (and the instrumentals), the project only has one feature from Mobb Deep rapper/producer Havoc. Stream available below, courtesy of Spotify. #PRESSPLAY

For those who know, in the early 2000s The Diplomats/Dipset movement was way deeper than the 4 core members that record as “The Diplomats”. There were sure-fire spitters like JR Writer, Hell Rell, 40 Cal, Tom Gist, A Mafia, and many more. When Dipset disbanded unofficially, many of these artists went their separate ways and pursued their individual careers. With the reunion of Dipset and the anticipated release of their reunion album, the question of would these rappers be included was in the air. Apparently not….
Dropping today, the same day as The Diplomats release “Diplomatic Ties”, JR Writer, Hell Rell, & 40 Cal drop a combined project called
“The Upstage”. At 8 tracks long and features from Tom Gist and A Mafia, the project looks to shine light on the ones who were forgotten.
Is this project being released the same day as The Dipset album a subliminal diss? With songs titled “No Reunions”, it really could be.
