Reunited rappers Cam’ron and Jim Jones have fueled speculation that the new Dipset record deal may be phasing out of the negotiation phase and nearing a successful close.
Based on new footage of Jones and Cam, a deal is in the process of being finalized.
Cam’ron: “Dipset deal almost done. Ha ha!” Jim Jones: “Deal almost done!” Jimmy’s cackle is a bit scary, but the bright side of this very short clip is….that according to Cam’ron and Jim Jones, there may be a Dipset Reunion record deal announcement soon! Sidenote: this is an example of what not to do while driving. Talking with friends, using your phone, videotaping, and laughing hysterically. (Miss Info TV)
Cam recently mentioned that the delay in inking the new Dipset contract was partly due to the members’ outside obligations.
“It’s a few people that’s been getting at us, but the money’s not really where we want it to be,” Cam said in an interview regarding label negotiations. “So we’d rather distribute it ourselves until somebody comes with the right amount of money. Jim is using the ‘Salute’ record as his single, so we’ll build off of that. But basically, with the Diplomat thing, everybody is gonna do it, but we got obligations. Jim got his album he definitely gotta turn in…[Me and Vado] got this Gunz N’ Butta thing. Juelz is putting his album together. Nobody wants to stop where they already have contracts and obligations, but we working too. We got eight, nine songs done.” (MTV)
Jones’ follow-up to 2009’s Pray IV Reign is set to drop at the end of September.
The album titled Capo is set for a September 28th release for now, on E1 and work has already started at the offices. “Salute” is actually his first single and it features Cam’ron & Juelz Santana. The Dale “Rage” Resteghini video will be premiering soon. Pre-order the album awwready! (Hip Hop N More)
According to Def Jam VP of A&R Sha Money XL, Juelz Santana is prepping the release of his Born To Lose, Built To Win LP.
“He’s touring and getting money,” Sha told SOHH earlier this year. “He’s getting his money so he’s comfortable, he’s just creating the right music because he’s that next n*gga man. So he’s coming with it. It’s coming this year, we gonna drop this mixtape, The Reagan Era, he’s shooting some crazy videos — they on it right now, heavy, and I support them because he’s that next n*gga. I’ve contributed from records all the way down, man. He gets everything man, from the music to the marketing to the big picture, man. We gotta create stars, I don’t just leave them at the A&R Depot saying, ‘I’m done.’ I take it all the way there. It starts with the music and you know that’s what I do. That’s just one of the things that I’m great at, is the music.” (SOHH)
