Dipset’s Jim Jones and Juelz Santana are reportedly out $500,000 thanks to immigration issues following a run-in with Canada border patrol agents this week.
According to reports, the Diplomats are owed half a million bucks over a now-cancelled international tour.
Jim and Juelz were denied entry to Canada on Wednesday, due to their rap sheets. Jim tells TMZ … he and Juelz were about to start an 11 date tour with their buddy Trav, but when their van pulled up to the crossing at Buffalo, NY — Canadian agents said, no dice. Jim says he knew their arrests might be an issue, so they took the preemptive step to hire lawyers who worked with immigration and the FBI … before the trip. He says the suits assured them Canada had given ’em the greenlight. (TMZ)
Jim also addressed the situation on his Instagram page this week.
Earlier this year, Jimmy broke big news about working on a collaborative project with West Coast rapper Game on social media.
Over the winter, Dipset embarked on a Diplomat reunion tour.
As they get ready to launch their reunion tour later this month, Dipset strikes again on their new song “Do Something,” which follows last month’s “Have My Money.” The Harlem collective—Cam’ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana, and Freeky Zekey—call out the frontin’ f*ckboys on the taunting track. Their “Pledge of Allegiance” tour with Funkmaster Flex kicks off Feb. 24 at B.B. Kings in New York and plays cities including Detroit, Boston, Miami, L.A., and Austin for SXSW. (Rap-Up)
