Dipset's Cam'ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana and Freekey Zekey have all officially reunited with the release of their new song, "Salute."
The track debuted Friday (June 25) on New York radio station Hot 97.
Of course, the big homie Funkmaster Flex got to drop the bombs on the first song from the reunited Diplomats, he played it tonite on his Friday night Hot97 show. And even though I missed the commotion while watching Ip Man 2, thankfully both Jimmy and Cam sent me the CDQ of the song, because I've been waiting to hear this too!....and share with you. Even though its still early yet, I'm definitely proud to see the progress. Big up to Jim Jones for persevering, Killa Cam for allowing, and Juelz for joining...Dipset2010! (Miss Info TV)
Jones hit up Twitter to express his excitement over the reunion cut.
"New Dipset Music!!!! Flex is Blastin Off Right NOW!!!!"
"Me, @Mr_Camron and @TheJuelzsantana produced by Arab Muzic Salute N*ggas"
"its a war goin on outside #dipsetb*tch"
"yal aint here thtr many bombs since world war 3" (Jim Jones' Twitter)
Last month, Jones talked with SOHH about reuniting with Cam.
"Nah, I love [Diplomatic Immunity questions]. Ask me some more. We comin' to kill. You heard me? I don't know what been going on in the rap game but I know what's about to go on in the rap game. Shouts to Killa, shouts to Juelz, shouts to Freekey Zeekey. Dipset 'fo life. Holla at us. Yes [a deal] is [on the table]. Where the money at? Nah, its never about money 'cause we got money but we want more money so who got the money? Who got the mottz?" (SOHH)
The reunion caught the attention of close associates like Dame Dash.
"I'm more happy than anything that they're friends -- that they were able to salvage their friendship, if that's the case," Dame said in an interview. "I think they're better than me for that: being smart enough and humble enough to apologize to each other and move forward. I really do hope that where I failed to be the right example, that they can be that. You always want the people ahead of you to do better than you anyway. For that, I gotta give them props for being men above anything." (MTV)
The track marks the first official Dipset record since Jim Jones and Cam'ron parted ways in 2007 over internal differences.
