XXcLusive: Juelz Santana Hesitant About Dipset Reunion, “I Still Have To Speak To Cam’ron”

Don’t pre-order that new Dipset album just yet. XXLMag.com recently chopped it up with the prince of the Dips Juelz Santana to find out his reaction all the reunion talk, and unlike Jim Jones it doesn’t seem as if he’s ready to bury the hatchet with Cam’ron just yet.

XXL asked Juelz how he feels about bringing the group back together in light of Jones’ recent interview with Funkmaster Flex. “I ain’t speak to nobody on that,” he said. “At the end of the day I would love to do whatever just for the fans, but you know I was put in a situation too that I just want people to understand that it’s hard for me to just walk back on to what I felt like somebody was my brother would put me in that type of situation for all this time [and] just wouldn’t reach out to me. So it hurts more and it’s harder for me.”

Juelz says he still hasn’t spoken to his former mentor in upwards of two years over what he feels was a bad business deal, and until he does he will not feel comfortable. “Me and Jim all had different reasons, like it wasn’t like I just said I wasn’t fucking with Cam because Jim wasn’t fucking with Cam,” he revealed. “Me and Cam had bad business deals so we still gotta rectify what we gotta rectify. Now whether he said he spoke to Cam, I ain’t really, I still have to speak to Cam.”

In the April issue of XXL, Cam said he stopped communicating with Santana because he was addicted to syrup- a blend a cough medicine and fruit-flavored beverages made popular in the South. Juelz denied that he ever had a drug problem and that Killa was just saying that to promote his upcoming album, Crime Pays.

While the reunion disc is still up in the air, solo albums from everyone in the crew are a definite. Jones’ Pray IV Reign dropped on Tuesday (March 24), Cam’s comeback disc hits stores on May 15th and Juelz has a mixtape titled The Regan Era hitting the streets sometime in April. He says his third Def Jam studio album Born to Lose, Built to Win should be coming out in July as well. In addition neutral member Freekey Zekey also has an LP Loyalty Is Everything flying onto shelves this year. – Jesse Gissen.

      Cam is Dipset. Without him none of these guys ever see the light of day.

  • Teddy

  • Vicious Seiger

    While I am definitely not the biggest DipSet fan, the prospect of an reunion seems more than likely due to the issue of fulfilling a contractual agreement with Koch Records. Now I don’t know who responsible for the contract and who will be left holding the bag but most artist rather throw together some BS tracks, some B-Sides and throw their name on it rather than payback money they owe or get into a legal dispute over the issue. So as much as they are saying no to such a project… I wouldn’t be surprised if this gets made just to wrap up all their loose ends with Koch.

  • Mutada al sader the king

    This all a game, they all (at least Jim and Cam) have spoke. This is hype for both of thier albums, a few more videos will be tossed back and forth, maybe a song or too and the album will happen. Come on people….

  • Aaron

    you need to do the dipset album because your career s over…You need that hype of the group to get you back on track!…You stepped your rhyme game up now step your business game up..Do the Dipset album Juelez!

  • flyfr0m84

    Word up Cam is wack now! Now old school Cam was dope. All his lyric sound the same now. But on the real there would be no dipset without Cam. He made Juelz and Jones! I’ll give it to Jones and Juelz for further there careers but without Cam who knows where they would be.

  • El Tico Loco

    Old school Cam was dope, and from what I’ve heard so far he’s getting back to his old form slower flow of course but on point, and as you see that’s without Dipset, he’s better off without them.

  • Ron Lee

    CAM IS THE ONLY MC IN THE DIPLOMATS. Jim ain’t a rapper by his own admission and Juelz, well Juelz just sucks. On any diplomat album, i would just fast forward to cam’s part. Also, too bad Cam don’t wanna be part of no bullshit diplomat album anyway. who’s gonna buy that shit without Killa? Cam knows that and he’s playin with these idiots. WHY YOU THINK JIM JONES WANTS TO DO A DIPLOMAT ALBUM ALL OF SUDDEN?

  • $ykotic

    KFC ain’t doing it. Done deal. Get over it. Move on…

  • Prince Caesar

    I don’t care if Cam is on the album or whatever, it is what it is, no one is checking for these dudes anymore. It’s Over. The Diplomats never really sold a bunch of albums, anyways. Besides old-school Cam, these niggas were wack and they still are. I used to be a die-hard Dipset fan when I was like 18..i’m now 23 and my taste has matured. Substance over Style. Hip-Hop is getting very comedic.
