Dipset‘s Cam’ron recently dismissed rumors of a possible rap beef existing against Jim Jones and Juelz Santana and updated fans on his stance with them.
Speaking on BET‘s “106 & Park,” Killa expressed his brotherly relationship with the Dipset camp.
“Me and Jim really haven’t been speaking for the past two, three years,” Cam explained. “I mean at the end of the day, we like brothers going through a little not-speaking thing. At the end of the day I ain’t got no harsh feelings towards anybody. We all grew up in the same neighborhood, we all been together but just right now Cam gotta focus on Cam…They’re doing very well right now, I’m about to be back in business doing what I do. Everybody would still be winning…We had problems before the 50 Cent thing but when you get on stage with somebody I’m going up against, then it becomes public…I want Juelz to do good, I want him to proceed with his career.” (106 & Park)
Cam recently discussed his role in Jones and Juelz’s careers, and explained how he inspired their Byrd and Skull Gang rap groups.
“At the end of the day, that’s the f*ck people’s problem is, how the f*ck I’ma feel a part of something that I own,” Cam said referring to Dipset. “People be confused…I own it. Are ‘they’ part of Dipset? See, what you gotta realize, there wouldn’t be a bunch of Skull Gang, Byrd Gang if they could exclude me from Dipset. They wouldn’t be making up all these other names if you could kick me outta Dipset. I own Dipset so you could never kick me out of Dipset.” (Dog & Pony Show)
Santana recently said he would be willing to record songs with Cam in the future.
“I’m still opened to doing Diplomat projects with Cam,” he revealed in an interview. “At the end of the day, deep down inside, Cam can’t say anything…That’s why the only thing he can do is stress the fact and say things like, ‘We all made money, and I gave Juelz his shot.’ Okay, that’s cool…That’s like saying Un [Rivera] gave you your shot, Mase gave you your shot, and you wound up dissing Mase; right? Mase gave you your shot, then he sh*tted on n*ggas, so you dissed him.” (iHipHop)
Cam’ron’s long-awaited Crime Pays album is reportedly en route to sell up to 45,000 copies in its first week in stores.
If you’re looking for sales relief, don’t expect any this week. The two top debuts appear to be a pair of Asylum rappers in Cam’ron (40-45k) and Paul Wall (15-20k), followed by The Crystal Method on their own indie label Tiny E (12-15k) and Mercury‘s Parachute, an iTunes exclusive which is already #1 at the online store with between 6-8k.
