Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder Damon “Dame” Dash has offered his thoughts on seeing former Roc associates Jim Jones and Cam’ron reunite after years of distance.
From Dame’s perspective, Jimmy and Killa’s reconnection shows their growth as men.
“I’m more happy than anything that they’re friends — that they were able to salvage their friendship, if that’s the case,” Dame said in an interview. “I think they’re better than me for that: being smart enough and humble enough to apologize to each other and move forward. I really do hope that where I failed to be the right example, that they can be that. You always want the people ahead of you to do better than you anyway. For that, I gotta give them props for being men above anything.” (MTV)
Cash Money Records’ Baby has also given his reaction of the rappers’ reunion.
“You know, Dipset came up the same time as us. Cam, Jimmy, that’s my family,” Baby says about Jim Jones and Cam’ron’s recent reunion. “For them to be together, that’s what it do, that’s what’s up. We making music and unity [and] that’s what I’m about.” (VIBE)
Last month, Jones confirmed his reconciliation with Cam.
“I heard about the announcement,” Jones said referring to his reunion. “I heard there’s two gentlemen that put aside their differences and things like that. That’s kinda good for the rap culture. I’m glad two young gentlemen as theyself get money and could put their differences aside and say they’re gonna do another album for the people. Big up to them…I’m waiting to hear the next press release or the next cover or maybe song, I’m waiting like everybody. [laughs] These guys are good, Dipset.” (VIBE TV)
Over the weekend, Jones talked with SOHH about Dipset during his Converse Band of Ballers basketball tournament in Atlanta.
“Nah, I love [Diplomatic Immunity questions]. Ask me some more. We comin’ to kill. You heard me? I don’t know what been going on in the rap game but I know what’s about to go on in the rap game. Shouts to Killa, shouts to Juelz, shouts to Freekey Zeekey. Dipset ‘fo life. Holla at us. Yes [a deal] is [on the table]. Where the money at? Nah, its never about money ’cause we got money but we want more money so who got the money? Who got the mottz?” (SOHH)
