Dipset's Freekey Zekey has stepped forward to defend remarks he made on his "Feel Me" track including allegations of Jim Jones stealing funds and Cam'ron having questionable contracts.
While he claims Dipset is still a family, Zeke explained the crew's current conflicts.
"My whole thing, I think it's some hop squash, I think everybody need to go and slap each other with a leather glove," Freeky said in an interview. "I think we need to sit down and re-do everything all over, because there was a lot of the things that people don't agree that Cam did with [the] shiesty contracts and there's a lot of things that Jim did [with the] robbing [of ] the money. Who hasn't got over on somebody? We all probably got over a dollar or two. Whether it was a female in the hood and she told a dude she was pregnant and he gave her $300 for no reason or a dude tell his man something cost $10 and it really cost $4 and the same situation is happening as far as Dipset is concerned and I think everybody should just chill out, reevaluate what happened in the past and meet at some type of standard. At the end of the day, I feel that when it comes to the Dipset reunion, everybody needs to shut up and get this money. That's how Freekey feels, the president of Diplomat Records." (Hip Hop Wired)
Initially released as being titled "Live It Luv It," Freekey's song explains how he and Juelz Santana were caught off-guard by the Cam-Jones dispute.
"Then Jim and Cam started fighting," Zeek raps. "Killa had some shiesty contracts/Said Jim was stealing the money/Kept it quiet didn't say nothing/Then me and Juelz [Santana] got hit like we was Joe Buddens/It took me about a year to get all them on an album -- they helped me back on my feet when I'm feeling like Gary Coleman -- 730 [Dips] was by they lonely, mixtape and World Star was the only thing had us going, aggravated, losing hope I took Henney under the rope..." ("Live It Luv It")
Remixing Zekey's "Feel Me" record, Jones explained his stance on the situation.
"Eh n*gga, if anything about me, I rob, I don't steal -- stealing? You a funny n*gga," Jones said. "Zekey wasn't lying about what money has ruined, I think the struggle for power is what started all this confusion/Around that same time he got caught up in that shooting/And not too far after that me and Cam started feuding/When I started 'Ballin'' it didn't make it no better/That was the last time we did a video together/And now our conversation, we should get this sh*t together..." ("Feel Me" Remix)
According to the Capo, it was only necessary to defend himself against claims made by Zekey.
"Shouts to Zeeky, f*cking punk!," Jones explained in an interview. "He wasn't lying about things like that. I wasn't stealing, though. I don't steal. So he put the track out, put some real life situations out. Some parts of our history and things like that, but I felt I needed to respond. We're having fun, so I felt I needed to respond. With the Diplomats, there was a lot of people involved in it. So that part is more frustrating than anything and sh*t. You start thinking about the money, and become a realist. There's a lot of motherf*ckin' money at stake. I'm just saying, it's hard out here to make a dollar, especially now. So if you got people offering you millions and millions of dollars that could feed other people. Not just about me and you, buddy, there's other people. You claim you love Zeek so much and all that sh*t. If n*ggas are telling me, Zeek can make a mill and some change, what's happening boss?" (Complex)
