Is Dipset really getting back together?

So, Jim Jones might be getting back with his hetero life mate Cam’ron. Whoopty frickin’ do.

Jones was on Funkmaster Flex yesterday trying to generate interest in Pray IV Reign, and he suggested that the two of them might be able to patch things things. He admitted he’d been selfish in the past, and said he’d like to sit down with Cam to talk about a possible Dipset reunion.

Actually, I took it at him mocking Cam’ron, rather than genuinely extending an olive. If you notice, this is being reported everywhere as a potential Dipset reunion, but if you look at the actual quotes, it sounds like Jim Jones is just patronizing Cam’ron, for the sake of his own ego. Like, “Now that I’ve got umpteen record deals and a fake exec position with Wonder Brothers, making Bugs Bunny money, I’ll let Cam’ron crawl home and hang out with me again. I hope he’s learned his lesson.”

One problem though: Cam’ron is hardly out of the game. He’s got an album coming out soon, too, and what’s there to say it’s gonna do any worse than the new Jim Jones.?

Yeah, Jim Jones somehow fucked around and made an album that wasn’t half that bad, not to mention an album that managed to sell remarkably well on Koch Graveyard ($7 an album x 500,000 copies sold = ballin’!), but that was three years ago. And “Na Na Na,” the single from Pray IV Reign is as gay as a three dollar bill.

On the one hand, it’s hardly surprising that a Jim Jones song would suck balls. The guy’s hardly a better rapper than I am, and I don’t even rap. He’s the true spiritual heir to 2Pac. Never mind that guy The Realest.

But on the other hand, you’d think Jim Jones would take extra special care to make sure he didn’t blow this. He’s got a shedload of money now; he could have brought in ringers. But to listen to “Na Na Na,” it’s obvious he doesn’t have anyone surrounding him that felt comfortable telling him he was playing himself.

Prediction: Pray IV Reign won’t do nearly as well as Hustler’s P.O.M.E., despite the major label backing. It’ll be like the weeks leading up to the release of Curtis, when Fiddy was going around talking about how his last album sold 8 million copies, as if that all but guaranteed his new album would do just as well. Then it didn’t, and he hasn’t been quite the same ever since. Six weeks from now, working with Jim Jones probably isn’t gonna sound tempting in the least bit.

Then there’s the fact that I’m not sure why we should give a shit about Cam’ron and Jim Jones getting back together. This isn’t Nas going back into the studio with DJ Premier. I reviewed that Dipset album when it came out four or five years ago (yikes!), and I don’t recall any notable songs featuring the two of them together. Same thing goes for their various solo albums.

If you think about it, a song with Cam’ron and Jim Jones might be retarded. Ignorant though he may be, Cam is a master craftsman with the lyrics, where as Jim Jones is… erm, the rightful spiritual heir to 2Pac. He’s probably better off having the entire song to himself, to adlib and what have you.

The only way I could see a Cam’ron and Jim Jones reunion being worth my while is if they united for a common cause. Like, if the two of them got together to take out Jay-Z. Or at least to mock him viciously. If they do, they can email me, and I’ll contribute fag jokes on the strength – not because I have anything against Jay-Z personally, but just because I feel the spirit of competition has gone out of hip-hop.

What do you fruits think? Are Cam’ron and Jim Jones really gonna get back together? Should we give a shit? Speak on it.

    Watching these two niggaz compete is like watching the Special Olympics…well, at least I assume it is because I’ve neither purchased any of their CDs nor watched the Special Olympics. No Obama. But put two retarded niggaz together and let them compete for something stupid like a gold plaque and I don’t see how you could argue against my point.

    I can stomach Cam’ron because he actually attempts to be a legitimate rapper, but what the fuck is a Jim Jones? Is he an exec, a street hustler, a grimy ball of smegma? (Look that one up, dumb niggaz) I’ve literally never heard a Jim Jones song, verse, hook, bar, word, or any syllable that came out his gotdamn mouth–that I could tolerate. It’s all shit, mang. That nigga leave skidmarks on the napkin when he wipes his mouth…he can’t walk barefoot because he’d just rub away into doo-doo brown smudges on the pavement. Boycott this nigga for the sake of everything so fresh and so clean!

      That nigga leave skidmarks on the napkin when he wipes his mouth…

      That’s fucking hilarious!

      I’ve never really listened to either of these two, but Jimmie is an idiot. Based on the stupidity of his interviews and soundbites, I see no reason why I should subject myself to three or four minutes of his rambling.

      son..i co sign pretty much everything you wrote…

      Cam is a horrific rapper and hasnt dropped a verse i would care to hear since banned from tv or 357…which ever came first.

      Jimmy…might be the worst rapper in the game. He is up there…

      I think the only track I ever heard with his voiuce on it that was tolerable was “certified gangstas” …and that was cause the beat knocked.

    • Tony Grand$

      “Smegma”, lol.

      Herbz, you’re truly a white nigga.

      • Tony Grand$

        I have to agree with the consensus on Jim. He’s Ass burger deluxe with a side of filth fries.

        I bought hustlers POME only because of “Weatherman” with Weezy (sweet fucking irony). Needless to say, I refused to be bamboozled by that sham ever again. Barack Obama couldn’t convince me otherwise (no nigga). The whole “I’ve been selfish” interview deserves a “no homo” the size of San Francisco”. No homo. How you lie, then change your mind like you’re doing the next dude a favor. & what about “frienemies”?

        I’m starting a petition; “no homo” is dead. “No Jones” from this day forth! That shit sounds better anyway. He deserves it.

        Cam is straight with me though (no jones). I’m going to pick up his album just on the strength.

      • that nigga


        You aint lyin. I learned that from the white boys In high school. Thats some disgusting shit. Im not even gonna reveal what that really Is or means.

  • sealsaa

    LOL at the Tupac shots. He truly was mediocre. I’d like to see them get back together, if for nothing else, to hear them talk shit about everything and everyone. as Pac like (i.e. shitty) as Jim Jones’ music is, his antics are just as entertaining, if not more so than 50 Cent’s. Arrogance run amuck (see Tony Yayo and Podigy) is simply irritating, but Cam and Jim’s arrogance has always had a certain endearing quality to it.

    • Tony Grand$

      Whadup sealsaa!?

      I have to disagree; 50 is the fucking king of “comedy”. This dude needs to take his act to Broadway.

      Here y’all go with the ‘Pac fest………..

      Bol, you’re a smart ninja.

  • sealsaa

    And yes, taking shots at not-so-young Hov would have to be at the top of their list of priorities.

    “not that I have anything against Jay-Z personally”

    Well I do. I’ve grown weary of his increasingly shitty music, and the notion that most people share that he’s untouchable.

  • sealsaa

    What up Tone?

    I don’t know, Jim Jones is fucking ignorant, but he’s hilariously fucking ignorant. Add Cam’ron in the mix, and you’ve got a situation. Meanwhile, i’m not really enjoying the whole “Pimping Curly” thing. 50′s shit talking strenth rest in his interviews, and at the end of his songs.

    “Here y’all go with the ‘Pac fest…….”

    Bol got me started.

    • Tony Grand$

      Yeah, Jim got that vibe like your spoil’d, rich parents having homeby who you can’t get high with because sober, he’s a fucking riot, but blitz’d, he’s just an annoying jerk.

      But 50, that dude needs a talk show. The perfect platform to run his mouth. Cat’ll be like Arsenio Hall for dummies.

  • DV8

    Cam dont need Jim. I wouldnt let a snake get close enough to bite me twice.

  • Pierzy

    What’s good everybody…

    First of all, “That nigga leave skidmarks on the napkin when he wipes his mouth” is the quote of the year.

    But on the real, no, I don’t give a shit that these two are thinking about giving their relationship another try. They’ll make a couple of songs, buy some purple shit together, and then go away again.

    And Jim needs to go somewhere with those skinny jeans.

  • stromboli

    referencing Tha Realest in relation to Jim Jones & Pac? that’s rap nerd trivia at it’s finest.

  • valdez

    all i’ma say is, whoever calls pac mediocre or compares him to jim jones of all ppl immediately loses all credibilty as a hip hop critic, imo.

  • giantstepp

    Bol, keep Pac’s name yo fat mouth!

  • c.p

    Bol ur blogs funny as hell but fuck yaself for disrespecting pac u fat piece of shit

    Didn’t Nas call Cam’ron a dummy?

  • tyson mike

    keep pacs name out ya fat cock sucking mouth

  • LOL

    I love how Jimmy aka im not a blawger tried to play off him coming out at the g-unit concert as some type of Mafiosi chess move.

    Now he’s obv doin this cause his album is coming out.

    plus nobody will care about it if its painfully obvious theyre doin it for the money.



  • Joey Montana

    Lmao all the pac stans, i think he got more e soldiers thn budden

  • faze one that nigga

    I co-sign on everything but the Pac shots. Pac was a real nigga. You can’t find that these days. The game is full of punk bitch ass jockies like Solja Boy and Gucci. But other than that i agree these niggas well at least Cam is better off staying solo. I made the mistake of buying the M.O.B album a while back. That whole album was full of a bunch of whack ass songs about a whole bunch of NOTHING. I mean i aint a hater but damn my nigga, you fucked up that shit. If anything Juelz needs to back the fuck outta dipset or whatever the fuck they calling themselves these days. Quit wasting tape you muppet looking muthafucka. And man what the fuck these niggas (mainly jones) be talking bout anyway half the time it sounds like they speaking in code nigga.
