From Me to U is the debut album by the American Hip-Hop rapper Juelz Santana, released on August 19, 2003. The album was seen as the introspective introduction of the rapper to mainstream entertainment. Following the success of various unofficial street mixtapes and being part of the rap group The Diplomats, co-founded by rappers Cameron Giles (a.k.a. Cam'ron) and Joseph Guillermo Jones II (a.k.a. Jim Jones), From Me to U was the second official album to be released while the super group was signed to Diplomat Records, a sublabel of Roc-A-Fella Records at the time, following Cam'ron'sRoc-A-Fella debut Come Home with Me. Upon its release in 2003,after one year of recording and mastering, the 20-tracked album found commercial success, reaching #8 on Billboard 200 and#3 on the Top Hip-Hop/Rap Albums, even though it did not receive critical acclaim throughout the industry. Though some tracks originally were featured on Juelz's street mixtape Final Destination, they were still applied to the track listing of the official album as well.
After the signing of The Diplomats, also known as The Dips or Dipset, to Roc-a-Fella Records in 2002, there was an influx of mixtapes, features on other artists' records, television and radio interviews, in which Juelz achieved mainstream recognition not previously gained through the various Diplomat mixtapes, and his solo mixtape Final Destination. After recording feature verses on the two singles, "Hey Ma" and "Oh Boy", which were on Cam'ron'sfirst Roc-a-fella/Diplomat Records release, Juelz started working on his as well since he was going to be the next solo album released on Diplomat records. In addition, Diplomatic Immunity was a Dipset compilation and showcasing of the entire roster, mainly Juelz, who is featured on the majority of the songs.
