LINK: Digga Tells HHNLive That He Owns The Diplomats Brand

In a new interview with HHNLive, producer Digga reveals that he actually owns the Diplomats brand that Cam’ron, Jim Jones and Juelz Santana have built into a household name over the past seven years. Digga, who produced hits like 50 Cent’s “Many Men” and Young Gunz’s “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop,” along with the majority of Cam’ron’s first two albums Confessions of Fire and S.D.E., told the website that he can back up his claims:

“This is the first time I ever spoke about this in an interview. Me and Cam are the founders of Diplomats…Anyone that really knows the history on me and Cam knows this. I own the Diplomat brand and I have paperwork that says so. Not Cam, not Jimmy. They have been using the logo all this time without ever hollering at me…I decided to step away from Cam because dude is selfish.”

Digga also talks about how his role in seminal Harlem group Children of the Corn has been marginalized:

“I don’t get many opportunities to speak but it seems like there is some type of conspiracy when these guys don’t mention my name. I released a CD called “Children Of The Corn-the Collectors’ edition” a few years ago. I produced that entire CD. On top of that, I was signed to Priority Records in 1996 under the name “C.O.C” with Cam and Bloodshed. I just wanted to clear that up because Duke knows me and he knows he never rapped or made beats. So when you ask him questions about C.O.C, it’s weird especially when he doesn’t mention me.”

    i smell bullshit here

    • Why?

      Nah, it’s no bullshyt! Thats real talk! Digga’s dat dude!

  • Da Kid

    DAM, Digga Huh? Who dis nigga?

    • WhyNot!

      Mah man, that’s Diplomats 101!!!!

  • Banton

    Dick set…lol. I’m not going to destroy dipset its gonna maintain , from now on Jimmy is the B.O.S.S and Juelz is the Capo, Cam is the messenger…..Laugh

  • Roland Bishop

    “Me and cam are the founders of diplomats”….i own the diplomat brand not cam, not jimmy” nigga u just said you and cam was the founders…and if you owned it yo dumbass wouldve been tried to get the money cause u damn sure would have a lot comin to you…you been in the game for like 13 years and yo track record is weak step ur game up nigga..

  • N.O. 4 life

    i dont give a damn who got paperwork…i mess with jim cam and juelz and the rest of the dipset…he owns paperwork for the company…so…jigga dont own def jam…dont none of these rappers own they label or wateva they push…it means nothing…its about music and swagg not no damn paperwork

    • Poster Child For Flyness

      Damn nigga u makin me laugh…yeah he dont own def jam…russel do…but Rocafella is an empire alone..kanye has even sold more records than dipset’s whole career…Yall Niggas Sound Funny To Me____

    • Fact Checker

      “its about music and swagg not no damn paperwork”

      This is why the game is all fucked up when a fucking asshole idiot says stupid shit like this.

      I bet yo dumbass is a lil webbie dick rider too huh?

      Rap is no more

      • N.O. 4 life

        So fact checker its NOT about music?
        than what is hip hop about…i thought it was about music and representation of the urban community that person resides in…if not please inform me on how i am wrong

        @ Poster Child
        so what does kanye sellin more records than the dips have to do with this blog?
        “rocafella is an empire alone” and this still doesnt disprove my point that the people who usually represent something dont own it…freeway hollers its the roc on a whole lotta tracks but that doesnt mean he owns it…

        the problem with the world now is that hip hop in general is consumed with money and trying to pursue fat pockets instead of pushing art or expanding the mind

      • http://u mike the g

        fuck u niga u dont know shit about the game.

      • http://u mike the g

  • ATL = All Trannies Live

    So let me get this straight. You own Dips but you ain’t getting a dime off it. Sounds like you as wack as you look.

  • Vuitton Gotti

  • MR.UNDISPUTED THE MOGUL

    I KNEW AS SOON AS I SAW THIS STORY A WHOLE LOT OF “NEW TO THE GAME, KNOW NOTHING, NEW JACKS” WERE GOING TO RESPOND LIKE THEY HAVE. IT’S LIKE WHEN YOU WERE A KID & YOUR PARENTS SAID YOU NEED TO LEARN YOUR HISTORY, SO YOU WILL KNOW WHO DID WHAT. BECAUSE DIGGA HAS’NT HAD THE MAJOR SUCCESS LIKE OTHER PRODUCERS DOES’NT MEAN THE SHIT IS’NT TRUE! HELL IF IT WAS ABOUT THE $$$$ HE SURE AS HELL WOULD’NT WAIT UNTIL CAM WAS PUTTING OUT A FREE MIXTAPE TO COME UP WITH THIS, HE WOULD’VE SAID SOMETHING WHEN THEY PUT OUT THE 1ST DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY CD ON ROCAFELLA, WHEN BIG MONEY CHECKS WAS BEING CUT, NOT WHEN CAM’S CAREER IS ON FLATLINE!!!I BET 99% OF THE FANS DON’T EVEN KNOW THAT DIPLOMAT RECORDS DOESN’T EVEN EXIST, IF YOU LOOK AT THE CD’S CLOSELY IT ACTUALLY SAYS “DIPLOMATIC MAN INC.” DO YOUR FUCKING HOMEWORK BEFORE YOU START TALKING ABOUT SHIT YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT!!!!! PEACE!!!!

    • http://xxlmag.com gaterride

  • Nor Cal Mufuckas!!!

    Who gives a shit about anything DIPSET. Seriously the gayest crew in all of hip hop. Literally gay. All these fags were broke as fuck and now they got money and should have no reasons to have such big egos or be fucking selfish. You know who is selfish? FAGS are selfish. I live in Frisco i know. They think they own half of the fucking city. Makes me sick.

    If you ever spent your hard earned money on an actual Dipset album from the store please do this beautiful world a favor and kill yourself quickly.

    • Vuitton Gotti

      You a funny dude, but I bet you a straight bitch ass nigga off the computer, fuck boy.

  • az40

    Once again hip hop stans taking shit too seriously “the dips is over” why the fuck do you read or listen to anything dipset related if you hate them so much? Is it cuz your a bitch? Niggas gettin’ mad at digga, why cuz he said he owns the company? Let the nigga live

  • JohnnyBlaze

    You live in Friso, but YOU’RE not gay…Right. I think I will trust you b/c YOU know…about being a FAG that is. No one admits they live in Frisco anyway, what they know about music anyway.

  • psmith

    lmfao! get yo money Digga!

  • psmith

    lmfao! niggas hatin! Get yo bread DIGGA!

  • Big Baby LSU

    why would digga wait till now if it was about the bread, nigga cam been past the hieght of whateva he couldve been, he finished, if it was about money diggz woulda been sayin it when purple haze dropped of come home with me, not now. digga owns them!!!!!!!!!!!! he been sayin it, allhiphop game he was sayin it. do ur research u dipset rejects. and he dont give a fuck, it’s his brand, he dont co-sign they music. they music is weak

  • fuck all yall

    Ah shit, I mean if you were smart enough to start the set and produce all these tracks, why the fuck you get played out ? it’s looks like your 12 teen in that picture sounds like cam and jones used you for everything they could and you took it like a bitch, but get that money if it’s yours.

  • http://xxlmag.com jus4real

    Him and Cam were friends, he let it ride because of that he didn’t have to rush, the money is there from the companies Cam and Jim worked with and he can get it at any time if you know anything about trademarks so dude is reallllllllllllllllllll smart!!!!!!

  • Hate is a sickness get well soon

    It makes alot of sense, cause if you ever look at at a cd thats been released by dipset it never says diplomat records it says diplomatic man inc. Go check if you don’t believe me

  • Jano

    Fuck this nigga, who he is ?

    Heard Cam was in FL for getting his mothers stroke solved.

    I mean the nigga just wanna get paid of the Set, and he mentions it by his self.

    He said he released the COC Album, fuck that, even tho u produced the tracks…its not your Crew its just that u r the fucking producer..broke niggas can be scoring sometimes…

  • Andrew Fogh

    you know, i like dipset and digga.. i been a big fan of his production, especially Children Of The Corn, which also includes Big L! i trust when he says he made it, could’n see why he would lie.. Cam and Jim are some sneeky dudes u know! anyways, good luck on everything Digga.

  • http://xxlmag.com tell the truth.com

    Freekey doesnt own a car, it’s leased, he doesn’t own a house its rented, the chains he wears is Cams old chains if you notice Cam doesn’t wear dip chains no more and that cause he passed them down to his son, the jewelry is fake, not real diamonds how do I know???? why don’t you know is the question!!!!!

  • http://xxlmag.com unothisman

  • http://xxl HTOWNDIP

    you can breath easy dipset/byrdgang fans,this is the deal the logo he owns looks exactly like the same eagle BUT cam ron removed the “desert eagles” in it’s talons,that is the difference.them cats is smart thats how they got away with it for so long.by law they can do that don’t believe me check the “LET ME KNOW” video produced by DIGGA.he’s a hoe thats why they did it and cam ron couldn’t use him after he knew he was going to ROCAFELLA with the hottest producers at that time.he had NO obligation to CAM he was UNTERTAINMENT’s in-house producer.where is UNTERTAINMENT now??????thats why he never blew or you ever heard of him.he owns the logo with the guns in its hands and thats why they want to change the name to BYRDGANG.thats why after DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY 2,the records are titled DIPSET not DIPLOMATS digga…..digga owns it but not the present logo and name

    • http://xxlmag.com enuffsaid

      HTOWDIP THAT’S ALL HE SAID WAS THAT HE OWNS IT…..READ AND LEARN AND IF YOU CHECK THEY NEVER STOPPED USING DIGGA’S LOGO LOOK AT ALL THE MIXTAPES….YOU JUST CONTRADICTED YOURSELF
      WHO OWNS BYRDGANG SHOULD BE YOUR QUESTION? AND WHEN YHOU SAY THEY WHO ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT CAM AND JIM CAUSE THEY HAVENT SPOKEN IN OVER A YEAR….. HAVE YOU EVER SEEN CAM WEAR A BYRD GANG CHAIN OR NOSTIC CLOTHING. CAM HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT AND YOU CAN’T HAVE A LOGO THATS SIMILIAR IN THE SAME MARKET ITS CALLED INFRINGEMENT
