2005 Diplomats Cam'ron Black Velvet New Era Hat
Astoundingly rare piece of Dipset history.
This black velvet New Era fitted hat was part of the officially-released Dipset caps that the brand dropped in the mid-00s.
This one in particular is an extremely rare Cam'ron version in the black, glittery velvet colorway. New Era only released three "Cam'ron" hats, this one and the red pinstripe version in 05 and the "Capture The Flag" Purple Haze hat in 04.
The hat is constructed of a black velvet fabric with glitter speckles applied to it.
Cam'ron wore this hat extensively through 2005, for example he wore it in his Rap City freestyle of the same year, as well as in another BET Rap City appearance, Cam can also be seen wearing this hat in the famous pictures in which he's playing Xbox with Jessica Alba and last but not least, the hats make a big appearance in the Get Em Daddy video with a lot of members of Dipset wearing them.
Cam'ron and Juelz Santana are two of the few rappers to have New Era hats to their name outside from the "Capture The Flag" series.
The hat is in a very good condition with some minor shape loss and minor wear to the velvet.
Size is a 7 7/8 - 63cm.
True grail for any Dipset fan.
