Dipset‘s Freekey Zekey has taken the credit for putting together the recent reunion between former estranged group members Cam’ron and Jim Jones.
Zekey claims he sat both artists down along with Juelz Santana to make the reunion happen.
“I done grabbed up Killa, snatched up Juelz, called Jim, we all sat down and I said enough of the bullsh*t, what’s happening,” Zekey recalled to radio personality Mr. Peter Parker. “We got big money, big business, big opportunities right now and I’m not stopping until everybody sit down right here and put everything out on the table — I [was] sitting there and letting them know it was way bigger than this, what are [they] arguing over, nobody took a dirty Subway sandwich and smacked somebody’s mom’s with it…I can never give up on my family. It’s 2010, time to get it in. Dipset wins again…” (Mr. Peter Parker)
Last month, Dipset’s “Salute” reunion track debuted on New York radio station Hot 97.
Of course, the big homie Funkmaster Flex got to drop the bombs on the first song from the reunited Diplomats, he played it tonite on his Friday night Hot97 show. And even though I missed the commotion while watching Ip Man 2, thankfully both Jimmy and Cam sent me the CDQ of the song, because I’ve been waiting to hear this too!….and share with you. Even though its still early yet, I’m definitely proud to see the progress. Big up to Jim Jones for persevering, Killa Cam for allowing, and Juelz for joining…Dipset 2010! (Miss Info TV)
In May, Jones talked with SOHH about reuniting with Cam.
“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)
The reunion recently caught the attention of close associates like Dame Dash.
“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)
