Byrd Gang leader Jim Jones recently shed more light on his relationship with Cam'ron explaining that their business interests can bring them together.
Jones has recently stressed the importance of financial security and how bad feelings shouldn't get in the way of making money.
"Amongst anything, peoples are just waiting for the get-back. Besides the friendship, the business at this point is worth more than anything because we both have families and the money can be worth a lot more than any friendship...if we can put our equals aside and settle our difference and make some good business then, that's worth it for me."

The rapper began to set himself apart from Cam when he started his solo career.
Jones released his debut solo album, On My Way To Church in August of 2004, amplifying the Diplomat movement at lightening speed. With rugged collaborations and hardcore life confessions, the album debuted at #18 on the Billboard Top 200 in August 2004. (SOHH)
His latest business venture came last week when he was named Vice President of Urban A&R at Koch Records.
"It feels good to know that the hard work has been recognized by the same people that have helped me get to this point in my career," Jones said. "They recognize that I'm not only an artist but a person that can smell talent and be able to mold a superstar." (MSNBC)[For more on your favorite rappers from the Big Apple peep SOHH NYC]
