Dipset’s Jim Jones has reached out to listeners in hopes of getting their suggestions for producers the group should enlist to help create the Diplomatic Immunity 3 album.
Writing via Twitter, Jones asked his followers to name five beatmakers.
“Questions: name 5 producers u think we should get production from for this up comin diplomat album D3,” he tweeted Tuesday (August 24).
“RT @donbleek88: @jimjonescapo Swizz Beatz, Lex Luger, Arab Money, Kanye West & Chinx Santana. This is a I’ll list right here.”
“Thnk y’all very much y’all help me compile a list of 46 dope producers now bout to have @ChrisLuck83 call all of them for beats.” (Jim Jones’ Twitter)
Based on some recent new footage of Jones and Cam’ron, a Diplomat 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 a 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)
