Dipset's Jim Jones has announced plans to reunite with Cam'ron and put together a new album for the fans.
Speaking in third-person, Jones confirmed his recent reunion with Cam.
"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)
"It's 2010, and this is something I gotta get off my chest...You've known us from back when we didn't have what we have now, so you remember, that above all, me and Cam, we still brothers. And we're building on getting back on track but first, I apologize for being a rude brother, for saying things publicly without first trying to handle them privately. I apologize for not leading by example because what I didn't realize at the time, I was venting but it wasn't all about me. There were other people whose dreams were also part of this movement...We had this luxurious life, but the rest of the family, they had slow down because of the ball I started rolling. I'd be pissed at me too...But God works in mysterious ways...a couple people took vacations, and there's a lane that's wide open. What we built solo since Dipset grew apart, we can combine and make even stronger together. I needed to clear my conscious before we work on building a bigger and better movement. Plus, consider it fair warning to everyone else." (Miss Info 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)
Writing via a blog posting, the "Capo" shared his reflections and current stance on the Dipset movement last month.
"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)
