Dipset head Cam’ron recently talked about his new “Dipsh*ts” anthem and explained why despite having Just Blaze behind its production they had not yet hooked up in-person. #CamIsBack
According to Killa Cam, he has yet to link up with Just for nearly a decade.
“It’s been a long time — maybe ten years,” Cam’ron told MTV News at the 5th annual FlashFWD Awards. “I just had a show with Just, actually, in D.C. about three weeks ago. So, me and Just are still in communication and we’re still good, but we haven’t actually been in a session together for a while.” (MTV)
Just Blaze also revealed getting his hand on “Dipsh*ts” after Cam laid down his lyrics.
It wasn’t a quick process, either. “I was working on the master to that record up until eight hours before the video came out,” Just said, adding that it took him about a month to finish the record. “As soon as I sent A-Trak the final, they synced it up to the video, and the video went up the next morning.” (MTV)
Killa Cam’s new music video premiered online Thursday (May 15).
Cam’ron reunites with his fellow Diplomat Juelz Santana in the video for “Dipsh*ts,” his collaboration with A-Trak. The Harlem crew takes it back to hip-hop’s heyday in the Ricky Saiz-directed clip (“‘Yonce”), which features a mink-clad Cam and cameos from Chromeo and Roc-A-Fella co-founder Damon Dash aka “Champagne Dame.” The explosive summer anthem, produced by Just Blaze, A-Trak, and Oliver, will appear on Cam’ron and A-Trak’s upcoming EP Federal Reserve.

Dismissing any and all feud speculation, Cam recently admitted scheduling and an emphasis on putting out a quality effort had held the LP back.
“Well, you know we all good with each other. It’s about everybody, everybody still got a lot going on. You know what I’m saying? It’s about everybody just being on the same page and not being busy. You know what I’m saying? Everybody got something going on right now. So, we all just gotta get on the same page and if we get the time, but it’s definitely all love. It’s just about nobody wants to sit in the studio for a week and just do a Dipset album cause it wouldn’t be genuine. So, basically we trying to figure out the time schedule so we can do it and get it right.” (Hoodrich Radio)
