The Diplomats' Jr Writer Prepping for Release of His Much-Anticipated Debut Album, "History In The Making"

Album In-Stores June 27th, 2006

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 2, 2006 -- With Cam'ron, Juelz Santana and Jim Jones at the top of their game, the next generation of Diplomats is upon us. First up at bat will be JR Writer, the much talked about Dipset member who first caught Cam'ron's ear years ago and who's been spitting verses since the age of 16. His hunger and drive is second to none, earning him the nickname "the writer of writer's." JR's finally ready to shine on his much-anticipated debut album, "History in the Making," which will be released on Tuesday, June 27th on Diplomat Records in conjunction with KOCH Records. The forthcoming release will also feature appearances from Paul Wall, Lil' Wayne, Cam'ron, and of course, the rest of the Dipset crew.

About the new album, JR Writer says, "The album is about me...everybody has a story -- this is mine. These are the things I see." And like Cam'ron says in "Birdcall," "JR, the streets have been waiting, they've been asking."

Making his scorching Dipset debut with the bomb track "Squalie" on Juelz Santana's album, "From Me To U," he's been dropping heat ever since on Diplomat/KOCH releases like "Diplomatic Immunity 2," "More Than Music, Vol. 1" and Jim Jones' "Harlem Diary Of A Summer." Writer also has the streets on lock with his own mixtapes, including "Writers Block -- Volumes 1 - 3" which are among the most popular and sought after Dipset mix tapes in the streets. JR's also been regularly featured on all Diplomat mix-tapes for the past 3 years.

The debut single off of "History In The Making" was "Birdcall" which featured Cam'ron & Lil' Wayne. The single and video were released late last year and generated some nice heat at urban radio, particularly on HOT 97/New York. JR's current single, "Grill Em" is also heating up mix-shows and is also available as a re-mix featuring Hell Rell & Cam'ron. JR is also heavily featured on the new Dipset album, "The Movement Moves On," just released through Diplomat / Asylum Records.
