Dipset's Jim Jones has responded to Freekey Zekey's recently released track, "Feel Me", in which he accused the Diplomats' Capo of stealing funds.
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)
Writing via a statement, Zeek detailed his motivation for dropping the unexpected tell-all track.
"It is time for me to speak," he wrote in a statement, "I want [the] world to know my side of the story; I want them to see my life for what it is. I want to answer the questions that people have been asking, like what's up with Dipset and why did you sign to Big Kat Records, when the listen to 'Feel Me' they will all have their answers."

Initially released as being titled "Live It Luv It," the song explains how he and Juelz Santana were caught off-guard by the 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")
Speaking with radio personality Angela Yee last month, Jones explained the importance of Dipset over the past decade.
"Listen to me, Juelz has the right to Dipset, just as much right to Dipset as Cameron Giles," Jones explained in an interview. "Ya dig? So there ain't no one person that can say Dipset is over. Ya dig? People just been doing a lot of YouTubin' and tryin' to get themselves hot. When you can't get on the radio, I guess YouTube is the next best thing. And tell me when I'm not telling the truth. There's no copyright holder...If I wanted to be a slob, I could have done some sloppy things...Above anything else, it wasn't just about me, Juelz and Zeek, there was a lot of people eating off this Diplomat situation...You gotta watch what you say as one person, because if someone was to take that personal, it could get ugly, ya dig? It's always Dipset, I am Dipset. I am Dipset, holla at me, whoever don't like it, I said I'm Dipset, I been Dipset...The Dipset is ours, we are Dipset, I am Dipset...This is not a publicity stunt, I don't go around sitting in shopping carts and do things like that. I go around and get money. If it's a problem, there's a thin line between love and hate. Ya dig?" (Team Yee TV)
