Earlier this month, Dipset's Freekey Zekey talked about reuniting Jones with Cam'ron after a three-year separation.
"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)
