Dipset leader Cam'ron has opened up about re-connecting with Jim Jones and stressed the importance of handling his own business ventures before launching a Diplomat album.
Cam did, however, say he keeps in constant contact with Jones.
"Realistically, we working out business," Cam'ron told website Nowwut.com today. "Me and Jim are speaking. I don't want people to think me and Jim aren't speaking," Cam'ron said. "We speak a few times a week. Right now, we talking out the business. The deal is on the table. But until the business gets situated, it's [Cam's group], the U.N.; me and [protégé] Vado. We not about to stop. All the bosses meet at the roundtable. To be honest, we missed out on a lot of money on the Diplomat thing the first time. I'm not moving on nothing Diplomat until the business gets done. But it's close to getting done. Right now I don't want to mislead nobody and say it's not U.N. right now." (MTV)
Known for producing tracks from Dipset's debut album, producer Rsonist recently said he was ready to once again step behind the boards for Cam and Jim.
"I actually just spoke to Cam for the first time in about two years just a couple of days ago," he revealed in an interview. "We're going to get back into the studio and make music again. At first, it was a little weird because we haven't spoke on a personal level in so long. But I sent him some music a few months ago, and he reached back out to me. But it's still all love. I'm actually supposed to meet with him later on today...I still think they're talented dudes and people want to hear their music. So why not? People are still interested and there's money to be made there. I know people had problems, but we're moving forward. Anytime the Dips want to reach out, I'm with it." (VIBE)
Speaking in third-person, Jones confirmed his reconciliation with Cam earlier this month.
"I heard about the announcement," Jones said referring to his reunion. "I heard there's two gentlemen that put aside their differences and things like that. That's kinda good for the rap culture. I'm glad two young gentlemen as theyself get money and could put their differences aside and say they're gonna do another album for the people. Big up to them...I'm waiting to hear the next press release or the next cover or maybe song, I'm waiting like everybody. [laughs] These guys are good, Dipset." (VIBE TV)
Cam also revealed there were possible plans to reconnect.
"There's nothing really Diplomats-related to show you yet. We all have our own obligations right now, our own projects. I have this Boss of All Bosses Pt. 2.5 mixtape with Vado and DJ Drama dropping soon. But yes, me and Jim have been speaking, we're working out the mechanics of this, and looking at our options right now. If it makes sense, it can happen." (Miss Info TV)
