Dipset producer AraabMuzik has come forward to speak on putting together the Cam'ron and Jim Jones reunion record, "Salute."
The producer claims Jim and Cam both received the beat about a month ago.
"I had gave him the beat, but I didn't think nothing of it. Cam already had that beat in his email before Jim. Cam was like, 'Alright f*ck it kid, I guess I'll just do the hook and a quick verse on it.' And then ever since then, Jim's been hooked. He's always been calling Cam or Duke up to bring me back over there to play some more sh*t...I got the call from Cam maybe last month telling me that he needed a Diplomat single and saying that they were all working on a single. So I guess this joint is now the single, 'cause all three of them are on it. I'm not sure if that joint is gonna be on the album." (Complex)
Last month, Dipset's "Salute" reunion track debuted 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 Hot 97 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...Dipset 2010! (Miss Info TV)
The Dip's Freekey Zekey recently stepped up to take responsibility for reuniting his crew.
"I done grabbed up Killa, snatched up Juelz, called Jim, we all sat down and I said enough of the bullsh*t, what's happening," Zekey recalled to radio personality Mr. Peter Parker. "We got big money, big business, big opportunities right now and I'm not stopping until everybody sit down right here and put everything out on the table -- I [was] sitting there and letting them know it was way bigger than this, what are [they] arguing over, nobody took a dirty Subway sandwich and smacked somebody's mom's with it...I can never give up on my family. It's 2010, time to get it in. Dipset wins again..." (Mr. Peter Parker)
In May, 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)
