Cam’ron has revealed his efforts to reach out to estranged Dipset members including his first conversation with Jim Jones since the duo fell out of touch.
Cam claims he’s spoken to his Dipset family as of now with the exception of Juelz Santana.
“Hell Rell and J.R. Writer, they always check in,” he said in an interview. “Everybody has been reaching out. I’ve been the one kinda saying Cam is going to take time do Cam. But Hell Rell and J.R. definitely been reaching out. I called [Freekey Zekey‘s] phone four or five days ago and Jim picked up Zeke’s phone. Me and him spoke for about 10 or 15 minutes, but me and Zeek speak all the time. I haven’t spoken to Juelz…It was cordial. He knew it was me…He said we was gonna holla, maybe we’ll put something together. But in the immediate future, I’m just doing Cam.” (MTV News)
The rapper’s distance with Juelz may be due to an earlier interview where he discussed the rapper’s alleged syrup addiction.
“Juelz started drinking syrup, Robitussin,” Cam’ron told hip-hop personality Miss Info. “He got hooked on it, addicted to it, you go to the studio he got, like, a hundred Hawaiian Punches already pre-mixed with the stuff in it. So I kinda stopped speaking to him like, we already smoked mad weed, we don’t need to be on Robitussin. I called his mother about it.” (Miss Info)
Despite accusations of doing Juelz “dirty,” Cam recently spoke with SOHH to debunk these claims.
“As far as I’m concerned I never did Juelz wrong,” he said. “I made sure he seen any contract we signed. He didn’t do a deal ’til he was over 18. I can’t do you wrong if you’re an adult. I don’t know exactly what he’s talking about.” (SOHH)
In the meantime, Cam is currently prepping the release of his upcoming album Crime Pays.
“What’s going on everybody,” Killa says in a video. “Y’all been looking for me and here I am. Just a brief breakdown real quick. The album Crime Pays comes out May 5th on Asylum/Diplomat Records, you know it’s gonna be a good look. Thank you for all the support on ‘I Hate My Job,’ it wasn’t my single or nothin’, just something I threw out there but thank you for the support. (World Star Hip Hop)
