Dipset associate Hell Rell recently said Juelz Santana and Jim Jones "killed" Cam'Ron's harlem crew. SOHH spoke with Santana who broke down his fellow Harlem rapper's rant and offered another side of the story.
According to Santana, Rell's controversial statements were made spontaneously and gave him an opportunity to keep his name buzzing online.
"Hell Rell is upset," Juelz explained. "Hell Rell's upset, he has no outlets right now. His only source of making money is for us to get back together which I understand -- but at the end of the day, he know what would happen. So for him to say that, he's just talking. I got nothing but time, he could always come to my studio and do songs and records with me but he couldn't get Cam on the phone -- I know Hell Rell at the end of the day. Like, I know Hell Rell. He really doesn't bother me when he says certain things, it's just that the game is dirty right now, people don't really have no outlets. Me, Jimmy and Cam were really the only ones besides everybody else, without us all being together, it makes it even harder. Just as much as it makes it harder for everybody, it makes it even harder for him. So I feel he's reaching for a little bit of attention, unnecessary attention. Hell Rell knows what it is...I let Rugga Rell be Rugga Rell when the camera comes on. I've seen Rell plenty of times. That sh*t is about nothing, I couldn't have beef with none of them. It's like, n*ggas is talking, man." (SOHH)
Rell previously called out Jim Jones and Juelz Santana for the "tarnished" Dipset image as of late and their usage of auto-tune on records.
"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)
Last March, Jones said he was willing to re-link with Cam for an album.
"I'm only one piece of this puzzle, there's three other players," Jones told radio personality Angie Martinez. "I think there's two other people who are in...I'm willing to get another Diplomat album done for the sake of us being selfish these past few years and change and our personal differences. It's been more to it, it wasn't just us that made Diplomats happen...for that, I think we owe it to ourselves and a lot of other people...A Diplomat album can't be done without everyone's participation, everybody feeling the same way about making this thing happen."

Prior to Jones' words, Cam released a video turning down the possibility of a group reunion.
"Look, I hear the deejays, I hear the fans, I hear everybody," Cam said in an interview. "I'm not doing a Diplomats album. I'm not rhyming with Jim or Juelz or nothing. I wish them all the best of luck. Accept it people. The people don't wanna seem to accept it. I don't have time to do that, it's not happening, I'm not doing it...And hopefully the people will get it in their head. Cam is doing Cam. I'm not doing no Diplomat Immunity 3 album. I hope they'll do it and I wish them luck. Stop dreaming. Stop hoping. Stop wishing. Stop imagining. I'm not doing it. Official. What's today's date? Thursday, March 26th, 2009: Cameron Giles, aka Spacely Sprockets aka Jaffe Joe aka Killa Cam aka KFC, whatever you wanna call me, I am not doing no Diplomat 3 album. That's it." (NowWutTV)
