Byrd Gang leader Jim Jones recently confirmed that he and Cam’ron had spoken, while revealing plans to re-connect the Dipset.
Jones hinted at the possibility of a Dipset reunion taking place.
“For the most part I’ve been selfish about a lot of things this past year,” Jones said. “I’m just extending my hand to the contribution of getting this Diplomat business done. If Cam’ron is listening, maybe we could sit down to get some business together and give the people what they want…Cam has always been on the top of business as far as making money. We spoke. I was doing a lot of b.s.in’ too. So hopefully I’ma do what I told him in the conversation…Aside from everything else, it’s a lot of unfinished business.” (Hot 97)
The Harlem-bred emcee recently expressed the duo’s distance after rebuffing questions about a recent phone conversation they allegedly had.
“Who?” Jones asked radio personality Angela Yee. “I don’t know what that’s about because everybody been telling me that and I’m the only one that don’t know about it. I don’t know what he’s talking about. If the money’s right [we’ll talk.]” (Shade 45)
Cam, however, previously said he reached out and began patching things up with Jones.
“I called [Freekey Zekey‘s] phone four or five days ago and Jim picked up Zekey’s phone,” Cam said in an interview. “Me and him spoke for about 10 or 15 minutes, but me and Zeek speak all the time. I haven’t spoken to Juelz [Santana]…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)
Aside from his relationship with Cam, Jones’ new album Pray IV Reign hits stores today as he heads to court on assualt charges stemming from last December.
Jones pleaded not guilty on Wednesday (February 4). “I’m trying to stay away from this building,” quipped the “Pop Champagne” rapper as he emerged from Manhattan Criminal Court after being arraigned. He downplayed the misdemeanor assault charge stemming from the Dec. 22 fisticuffs with Jayvon Smith. “It’s what you call an expensive inconvenience,” said Jones, wrapping an arm around his lawyer, Scott Leemon. Jones is due back in court March 24. (New York Daily News)
