Dipset leader Cam'ron recently spoke on his new rap group, The U.N., and explained how he plans to expand on the Diplomats' movement.
In addition to films, Killa also promised fans to look out for his artist Vado's new album.
"When we started Dipset, it was more than just a crew, it was a movement," Cam wrote in a statement. "The U.N. is a continuation of that movement...Our new roster: Charlie Clips, Byrd Lady, Vado, Fly Boyz, Begetz and Young Hustle were all selected by me and my business partner, Omar 'Iceman' Sharif. He has made his name in the music and film industries brokering and securing multi-million dollar deals, merging hip-hop with Hollywood. His experience is exactly what we need to make strategic connections at the next level...In between films, we'll keep the streets hot with The Gangsta Grillz Mixtape and we'll most likely release Vado's album immediately after...Between the films and the music coming soon on U.N. and Dipset West, we gonna keep the 'hood in a frenzy!"

Killa is also planning a possible film based on former New York City drug dealer Guy Fischer.
Cam announced plans to release several film projects, including a follow-up to his highly popular 2006 film Killa Season, which he penned and directed. He expanded on those projects saying, "We got a movie coming out called The Bakery and then we'll drop the second installment of Killa Season." Cam is also considering the release of a bio-pic on convicted racketeer Guy Fischer, former member of The Council, an infamous organized crime syndicate which controlled the heroin traffic in Harlem in the 70's and early 80's.

Dipset associate Hell Rell recently called out Jim Jones and Juelz Santana for hurting the group's image.
"Shout-out to my n*gga Cam," Rell said in an on-street interview. "At the end of the day, after he closed the books, I pretty much went with my group which is Top Gunnas. Because we all know that Jim f*cked the [Dip]set up. He just f*cked the whole 'set up. Denying the phone call, Cam called him, said he didn't call him. He jumped on [Funkmaster] Flex and said he did call him. A whole bunch of bullsh*t like, f*cking up money man. That sh*t just had me mad man. I'm like come on man, you serious? Then he go out on Summer Jam, him and [Juelz] Santana, I love the movement, you know I love the 'set, but they just tarnishing the name. They just f*cking this sh*t up. You know what I mean, everything that we built. That auto-tune sh*t ain't us...Never was Dipset music, so all that other sh*t it's just getting out of hand man. Ruger just gotta whip it back into shape man." (Hip Hop Beef)
Despite Cam's falling out with Jones and working with The U.N., he recently re-linked with Mase for a joint collaboration.
"This is part of a bigger project' is what I was told," radio personality Miss Info said in an interview last month about the duo's collabo. "What was so shocking is that no one's really seen them together or anything like that...Nobody knew they squashed some of their old disputes. But behind the scenes, they had resolved their issues, and they've been friends for a little while now...[Cam] also told me this isn't the only record that they've done...Last year, they got together, they played ball, in Jersey or somewhere like that, from what I understand. The friendship has already been in the works, which is what I like about how this record came outta nowhere. It's not a fabricated publicity stunt, which is what some people were thinking it was. They didn't get together only for a record. They were already friends." (MTV)
