Dipset leader Cam’ron has the Internet buzzing this week after hinting at plans to possibly drop his own line of signature Diplomat sneakers to the masses.
Killa Cam jumped onto his Instagram page and raised eyebrows with a throwback PRO-Keds Dipset sneaker photo.
Cam’ron took to instagram to hint at a possible Dipset sneaker that could be in the works. He posted a picture of PRO-Keds “Dipset” sneaker with the caption, “”Ima bring these back out.. Not wit ProKeds tho.. #StayTooned.” Given Cam’s affiliation with Reebok, it feasible to think he could collaborate with them for his very own Dipset sneaker. We know the collab won’t be with PRO-Keds because they are no longer making shoes, but a Reebok x Dipset mashup is something that is within the realm of possibility. (Sneaker Mob)
Recently, Cam collaborator Smoke DZA hit up SOHH and compared the rap veteran’s new cape line to the early 2000’s pink craze he started.
“I’m co-signing the capes for Killa,” Smoke told SOHH. “Only for Killa. I’m not co-signing the capes for nobody else. People gotta just let that man do what he do. It’s just like when he was doing the pink [fashion trend] and you’d go outside and see some n*gga with a dirty pink shirt on. That ain’t for everybody. Pink’s not for everybody just like the cape’s ain’t for everybody. But the Kush God is f*cking with the cape. It’s because he’s a Harlem n*gga. Anything he does, he owns it.” (SOHH)
A few weeks ago, Cam spoke out on the unexpected launch of his capes.
Last week was a big one for Cam’ron and JuJu. We were the first ones to report on their epic appearance on the runway at Mark Mcnairy‘s 2014 New York Fashion week. In front of a bougie fashion crowd, Killa showed off his new Dipset capes with his first lady right there to back him up. In a strange transaction of introductions, Info was able to plug Cam with Mark last year who ended up making him four custom capes just in time for his new albums. “I’ve been different my whole career,” Cam’ron says. “Being around this long, you just think of ways to reinvent yourself. I just thought that this would be fly.” (Miss Info TV)
Cam unleashed his line alongside curvy girlfriend JuJu in early February.
There were turtlenecks, furs, and even capes at New York Fashion Week. Cam’ron debuted his new cape collection with designer Mark McNairy during the designer’s Fall/Winter 2014 fashion show on Tuesday. Models walked the runway to “Hey Ma,” while Cam, draped in a fur-lined cape with “Dipset” on the back, and his girlfriend JuJu held hands and waved to the crowd. (Rap-Up)
