Juelz Santana has re-sparked talks of what it would take to once again team up with Cam'ron and give life to their Dipset movement they created with Jim Jones and Freekey Zeeky.
Despite his desire to link with Cam for the Diplomat fans, Santana also pointed out his confusion toward the Dipset leader by blaming their distance on his past syrup addiction earlier this year.
"It bothered me when Cam said it because it was like this is the reason why you're going to tell the world why you stopped speaking to me, because I was drinking sizurp?," Santana reflected in an interview. "You still spoke to other n*ggas that was sipping sizurp so it's just f*ck me because I'm drinking sizurp. It just didn't make sense to me...There's some things that gotta happen. I would love to do anything for the fans because I'm not a selfish person. If the fans want to see something, I'm not saying it would be genuine, but it would be cool and I ain't on it like that. It's just different with somebody that you look at different do something to you than somebody that you don't expect to do something to you do something to you...I ain't the type of person to say I would never work with Cam. I'm too big for that at the end of the day. I just couldn't be blind or act like I'm blind when I see everything." (Hip Hop Game)
Cam initially said Juelz's alleged addiction broke the duo apart in an interview last winter.
"Juelz started drinking syrup, Robitussin," Cam'ron told hip-hop personality Miss Info. "He got hooked on it, addicted to it, you go to the studio he got, like, a hundred Hawaiian Punches already pre-mixed with the stuff in it. So I kinda stopped speaking to him like, we already smoked mad weed, we don't need to be on Robitussin. I called his mother about it. I called his closest friends about it. They knew it, knew about it. They was like, 'Yo Cam it's not that bad'...I'm like yo, that's like saying you just smoke a little bit of crack, it ain't that much crack...So that's kinda how I shot away from Juelz. It was even a point where Jim [Jones] called me like, 'What's going on with you and Juelz'...I said, he's on drugs." (Miss Info TV)
Santana responded shortly afterward and questioned Killa's motivation.
"For him to say he stopped messing with me because I was drinking syrup -- that's like Baby saying he doesn't mess with [Lil] Wayne because he was drinking syrup," Santana said in an interview. "He just wanted to say something and that was probably the only way he could say something and keep his character up. I was never addicted to syrup. I used to drink it on occasion. I don't know where that came from. [His comments] were a shocker to me, like, 'Damn, you would stoop low like that?' With his stomach situation, he was doing Percocet. It's not for me to say, 'Because he was using Percocet, I stopped speaking to Cam.'...I still wish him the best. But that syrup comment -- I didn't understand where that came from." (MTV)
The rapper previously spoke with SOHH and shared his reaction to Cam extending his Diplomat ties with the creation of Dipset West.
"I always respected Cam's decisions," Juelz explained. "As far as Dipset, Cam is the boss. He do what he want, but you know, just as much as I can say that, n*gga has to give me my credit too as much as, as far as I've built that whole building though. You architected it but I built the whole building. I put at least 85 percent together, the bricks were geared to Dipset, like I said, Cam was always Cam before anything, ya dig? So when it came to Dipset, I was an artist that put everything on the back and really went forward. But as far as Dipset expanding, Dipset is in my blood. So, it is what it is, I don't know. How I feel about Dipset is how I always feel, with Cam, if that's what he wants to do, expand it, then it is what it is. I don't know them dudes over there to not like them -- I don't know them to say nothing about them. I respect all hustlers, anybody trying to get on in any type of way. So, in that case, it's love. Just rep the name right -- I never tried to take the Dipset, my whole thing was Skull Gang. I knew Cam was the boss and Jim [Jones] was the underboss, I was the reigning general of all that so the whole thing is now for us [to be] like the mob. Everybody supposed to have their own family and control their own family...Jim, he has his Byrd Gang family, that's like Cam right now got The U.N. going on, but they do fall under that Dipset tree -- forever, whether we speaking or not speaking 'cause I rep it to the death -- the bird is gonna fly."
