Wednesday, Sep 22, 2010 10:43PM
New York rappers Cam'ron, Jim Jones and Juelz Santana will officially kick-off a Dipset reunion concert in the Big Apple this November.
Details on the long-awaited gathering landed online Wednesday (September 22).
With each passing day, the Dipset reunion seems to slowly become more of a reality. With interviews and songs already released, the next step in the progression is the Harlem squad performing together for the first time in years. The fantasy will become a reality on November 26, when Cam, Jimmy and Juelz will hit the stage at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. The presale for the Dipset Reunion Concert, presented by Hot 97, begins today (September 22) at noon and comes to a close on Friday at 10 a.m. EST. Tickets for the general public become available on Saturday at 10 a.m. (XXL Mag)
Last week, Juelz spoke with radio host Funkmaster Flex about a pending Dipset record deal.
"Yeah, definitely, we been in the mix doing a couple songs back and forth and we've been in the studio a couple times," Juelz told radio personality Funkmaster Flex about Dipset reuniting for new music. "We just getting it together. We're waiting for the deal to go through which should be any day now. We're planned toward moving forward and doing it how we do it and giving the people what they have been waiting for." (Hot 97)
In late August, rumors were circulating suggesting Dipset would sign with Interscope Records.
Weeks after both Cam'ron and Jim Jones tweeted about a potential label deal "almost being done," the Dipset reunion seems to be inches away from being official. A source close to the New York crew says Cam, Jimmy, Juelz Santana and Freekey Zekey are finalizing a label deal with Interscope Records -- the former home of Cam'ron rival 50 Cent's G-Unit crew. Go figure. No official confirmation yet, but, we're going to run with it. Wishful thinking! (Billboard)
Last month, Dipset's Jim Jones asked fans to help suggest producers for their upcoming Diplomatic Immunity 3 album.
"Questions: name 5 producers u think we should get production from for this up comin diplomat album D3," he tweeted Tuesday (August 24).
"RT @donbleek88: @jimjonescapo Swizz Beatz, Lex Luger, Arab Money, Kanye West & Chinx Santana. This is a I'll list right here."
"Thnk y'all very much y'all help me compile a list of 46 dope producers now bout to have @ChrisLuck83 call all of them for beats." (Jim Jones' Twitter)
