Dipset's Jim Jones has addressed his past falling out with ex-associate Cam'ron and said he's optimistic about a reunion.
Writing via a blog posting, the "Capo" shared his reflections and current stance on the Dipset movement.
"I don't think we (me and Cam'ron) actually turned on each other, as opposed to just...we just grew apart from each other," Jones wrote today (March 15). "We would see a lot more discrepancies going on between the two of us. For the most part you don't see anything going on between the two of us. He's doing what he does; I'm doing what I do. Hopefully we can get this Diplomat thing back together, put another album out and sh*t like that and keep it moving. I don't know man, when me and him do get up, trust me, y'all gonna know about it. For the most part everything is pointing in the right direction; I'm open for it. I like big checks, ya heard me?" (Global Grind)
Last month, Jones addressed Cam's Diplomat expansion into Dipset West.
"Ain't no such thing as dipset west till they patch in I don't know yall man CAPO said it holla Shouts to west side piru," Jimmy wrote via Twitter on Friday (February 26). "Matter fact ain't no dipset until me camjuelz n zeke get back together n make tht powerful music Thts the Diplomats I know." (Jim Jones' Twitter)
Jimmy also discussed Dipset's legacy in hip-hop last month.
"This is hustling music. I just remember the days when n*ggas used to love to hustle. What we did as Diplomats, as a whole, me, Cam, Juelz, Freekey, we're one of the last of the Mohicans for Harlem, upholding that thing," Jones said in an interview. "We bring a lot to the table as far as the fame and the history as of recent and in the last decade. That's 'us' up there, holla at us. We got equal share to that, we feel like we harder when it comes to the streets, you don't see too much of us often. So get a good look at us like I've been saying. [laughs] Life is a hustle to me, I'm a hustler, man. Hustle is just about getting money man. It doesn't matter what it is that you're hustling. I'm going for mines. Right now I've been doing music. I've been doing entertainment." (Vlad TV)
He still has high hopes for a Diplomat reunion later this year.
"Yeah definitely, that's little bro right there," Jones said referring to Juelz Santana. "It's still Dipset for life above what anybody thinks. Shout-outs to Cam also but everybody got their own thing that they're doing. We moving in one accord though, you'd be surprise at what's gonna happen this year. We might knock the socks off the industry. Dipset, b*tch. That's all I got to say." (Radio Planet TV)
