Jim Jones Responds to Cam’ron: “I Am Dipset”


During a video interview with HoodFiles.com earlier this month Cam’ron upset fans when he declared that the Dipset movement “is over.”

Diplomats Capo Jim Jones took to the airwaves yesterday (November 23) to react to Killa’s statements. “There aint no one person that can say Dipset is over,” he told radio personality Angela Yee on her Shade 45 show Lip Service. “People just been doin’ a lot of YouTubing and trying to get themselves hot. When you can’t get on the radio I guess YouTube is the next best thing to get on,” he said laughing.

In the April 2009 issue of XXL magazine Cam confirmed that he owned a majority percentage of the Diplomats. When asked if Jones was upset over the situation, the Harlem rapper got animated.

“I am Dipset,” he replied. “Whoever don’t like it come holla at me. I been Dipset. It started in the projects and ain’t nobody got me out of Apt. 5H but myself…and this is not a publicity stunt. I don’t go around sitting in shopping carts,” he continued, referring to Cam hopping in a cart at the end of the hoodfiles interview, ”I go around getting money. If there’s a problem; there’s a thin line between love and hate. “

As of press time Cam has yet to respond. —Elan Mancini

  • SOUTHSIDE A-TOWN

    aaawwww shit!

    • yoprince

      i know right.

      i believe cam to be right in this situation.

      but as true friends, you always forgive. that’s the measure of true friendship.

      if it was me and my nigga… we woulda just fought it out.. let the fists fly, no stompin allowed. then put something in the air, shots of whiskey, and leave the past in the past.

      but these niggas on that big ego shit.

    Does the shit jimmy says even make sense to himself as he speaks it? And he aint never had a song on the radio cept WE Fly High…who you foolin jenny? Cam is Dip Set period

  • cease

    more beefs being re-hashed and re-lived. this shit is so old. beans/jay/fif…cam/jim/juelz. shit is stupid. make great music and get your papes in ’10.

    jim apologize to the nigga. his 50 beef began with him interceding on your behalf from what he perceived as an air diss to jones being on an indie…did yall have his back after? come on man these dudes were jumping on stage w/ 50 while homey was takin care of ma dukes.
    rap is so disgusting these days. ugh

    • that nigga

      You aint neva lied. He held Jim down against 50 and Jim go on ahead and sucks 50 off, Juelz too. Fuck em’, Cam Is Dip and its over Jim. Get over it. Y’all can go ahead and make Dipset albums without cam and he’s still gonna get the majority of that money. You lose again Jim. Sorry.

      • valdez

        c/s…

        all of this coulda been avoided if jim and juelz ain’t bitch up when cam called 50 out TRYIN TO HOLD JIM DOWN!! how does jim not see this is his fault?? as has been stated, cam is dip and jim and juelz will lose w/ out cam.

        RIP

  • thechronic2010

    This dude is way to cocky and arrogant, if it werent for camrons early solo albums there would be no dipset and there sure as fuck wouldnt be no jim jones, if camron didnt put this dude on the hey ma video he would have never been seen, dipset fell off as soon as camron left

  • iamlegend

    Thats terrible they was homies and that money came between them and i dont know what the fuck they was thinkin gettin on stage with 50 he just used them 2 get back at cam and they fell 4 it hook line and sinker Jim need 2 lose that ego he know Cam got him out that apartment he talkin like he wanna take it 2 some kind of violence and thats the man that put u in a position 2 be rich thats sad.

  • Brooklyn

    a nigga get a couple of wack ass singles and he don’t know how to act. seriously, who the fuck knew who jim jones was before “we fly high” came out? i had to go back and watch the “oh boy” video to see that nigga two-stepping in the background. “ain’t nobody got me out of Apt. 5H but myself…” yeah nigga, you got out of apt. 5h, but where did you go until you became cam’ron’s weed carrier? let this be a message to all you niggas out there, never let your weed carriers think that they have any potential beyond carrying weed, because then they’ll try and take shit over. talking about he don’t go around sitting in shopping carts, that homeless looking motherfucker probably pushes them shits around. he looks like them niggas that be sitting on the ground at times square with signs around their neck saying “will rap for food”. man, fuck jim jones.

  • tommy gunz

    lol @ internet clowns passin judgement on a situation they have no idea about

    branch out of ya momma’s basement and grow a sack of nuts and maybe one day you could pray to get half as much money as cam or jimmy

    • Gerv

      Stop makin money the reason can’t nobody respond to somethin.I bet you ain’t ballin or rich ya damn self.That’s when hip-hop got messed up people think cause a nigga got paper you can’t say shit about him.I guess that’s gonna be the reason everybody don’t trip if Jay don’t respond to Beans,because he’s rich yall some dickriders foreal.

    • Gerv

      I’m talkin to you Tommy Gunz make up ya own name cheerleader!

  • Enlightened

    Enlightened Responds to Jim Jones: “No, nigga you are not Dipset. I laughed when I first heard you rap. I’m not even a Cam’Ron fan but without him, we would still think of Jim Jones as the crazy cult-leader mass suicide dude. Get the fuck out of here please. “

  • NotoriousAGC

    jim jones is a lame, his music is gay,his verses were so wack, and like brooklyn said, dont ever promote your weed carriers like cam, look at em now they both (santana and jeny) think they WERE
    dipset..no wonder jay-z dropped his weed carriers like a bad habit..lol jay always on top of thangs.

  • Brooklyn

    lol @ niggas passing judgement about where a dude lives and whether he has testicles or not. if i want to get where jim jones is, i’ll just start carrying weed and blunts for a rapper, get a mediocre single, and then turn my back on him.

  • tommy gunz

    ^^lol @ feelings caught^^

    hit close to home huh?

  • Brooklyn

    @tommy gunz: somewhat, but i don’t live in my mama’s basement, i got a bedroom. and i’m working on my degree so i can get that money, but by my own merits, not riding on some other niggas’ coattails.

  • QUE ROLLO

    I jus wanna noe how in hell is camron better than jim jones. Cookies and apple juice?. Um I think not. Just cuz he has singles doesn’t mean he’s nice. Its the industry. So Fuck camron and his “I got computers pute’in” ass.

    Btw. Eminem will slaughter them all soo…

    • El Tico Loco

      That must’ve been when you started listening to Cam. Big L put Cam on (and Ma$e) and Biggie cosigned for a reason, listen to his verse on 8 iz enuff (my 1st time hearing Cam)”my crew from from the east leavin at least 20 police deceased so make tracks, i break backs I jack with def gats, and black macs” So I understand first impressions. Now the goonie talk and anti hygiene stance thing Jim Jones workin with is not a good look, and he needs to give credit where is due.

  • balaramesh

    @ jim jones,

    dude you been a former background dancer for cam’ron from day one. do not get brand new.

  • billy blanco

    What world is dis nigga living in cam needs to make himself hot???? look at dere last album sales cam sold da same amount of shit wit no promotion no videos dis nigga had a play on broadway n shit videos n he still flopped no wonder cam dont fuck wit u assshhhhole

  • megulito

  • wavn360

  • ff1one@yahoo.com

    its amazing how things that are right are just clearly right. JIMMY. seriously? Cam is dipset. infact cam forming a new squad. Jimmy. cam use to shout ur name out when u was nothing. this is equivalent to what Beans did. likewise, 50 cent is the common denominator. he destorying hip hop while trying to make a dollar. back to Jimmy. u are everything thas wrong with hip hop.

  • Vhingrhamesonyo’momma

    who cares all you niggas trash now anyway, dipset was done before it started.

  • Detroit Dave

    Im pretty sure things might be different in New York but in Detroit, Jim Jones don’t get any radio play here so wtf is he talking about?

    When is the last time he made a good song by himself? Ballin? 2006? nigga please.

  • nic

    JIM “DIRTY” JONES is a bum. Cam put you in the game and took you out of 5H, you used to be a hype man. Don’t knock the one who put you on, you wouldn’t be where you are if Cam didn’t look out for you in the beginning..He just wants some limelight, all your songs sound the same and you talk about the same things.

  • KG

    Who buys a Jim Jones album? He’s the most congested and stuffiest rapper ever.

    • Port Lyfe

      Next to Gucci Mane lol

  • Down South Nigga

    @Jim Jones shut the fuck up….we knew who FREEKY ZEEKY was before we knew who you was lmaoooooooo!!!!! You 1 hit wonder ass nigga Cam shit aint gotta get on the radio WE STILL GONNA BUMP HIS SHIT & you only had 1 song on the radio that’s Ballin which Max B made lol.

    Cam is Dipset

  • Worth the Read

    Who even listens to this guy anymore!…

    I do wish they would dap-up and make up!… I liked Jimmy so much better when he was just backing up Cam’s Tuff talk.. He was so much better then!!.. those were the days of DIpset when they had some structure!

    Juelz is nice and should’ve come up but JIMMY.. Com’On SON!… he dont even rap, EVER!..

    oh… AND CAM Is the DIP, cause he got the Majority percentage!.. Fuck it! why claim some shit that aint making you NO Money!

  • sb

    the sad thing is that these 2 have known each other since they were babies..They know each others mommas.That means something..They got money togther..Cam made a lane for Jones and the Dipset..This makes no sense…How are you gonna say that thin line between love and hate to your boy…that’s corny.especially airing this out in public

  • olliedon

    i know cam was wrong 4 leaving jimmy at rucker, but u dont get a nigga back like that!!!SIDING WITH 50? we would not know these niggas if it wasnt 4 cam!!!man both o yall 4give and 4get. wit love nothings impossible. pce

  • CBS

    I think it’s funny how everyone is jumping on Cam’s dick. This friendship has been over since that bitch ass Cam went runnin’ off the basketball court leaving his childhood pal to catch a beatdown that was intended for him. Hate Jim if you want but he took that beating like a man. Cam is by far the biggest bitch in the business. He even got punched in his eye & hid out for a couple of weeks. Dipset moved on without him. Cam should do the same.

  • pa double

    Did anyone see when cam and jim was rapcity, and cam slapped jim in the head for bumpin the pool table?

  • sway-z

    And all these niggas like Juelz, Hell Rell & Zeek wonder why this shit ain’t gonna happen. Everytime Jim Jones open his mouth he saying something slick. After hopping on stage with 50, I wouldn’t be saying shit about no dipset. Niggas can say what they want, Cam ran at Rucker, he played them out money blah blah blah, there wouldn’t be no Jim Jones if it wasn’t for Cam’ron. Period.

  • therealwayno

    No matter what happens in a team that may be wrong, switching teams is never the move. Go make your own new team, but don’t cross over to the enemy. You can’t recover from that. At the end of the day traitors may get paid while they are useful but are not respected at all, by anyone.

    Good luck with the music though.

  • Joika

    Jim Jones is wrong – the fans used to be Dipset,after the CAPO(of Dipset..) went on stage with Fif he was thrown out of the Dips by the fans….

    Good luck with the Byrdgang – sandman and them boys is settin the bizness on fire LOL!

    KILLA! RUGA!

  • c_realla

    Hella funny! Jim “the joke” Jones might as well said he is a dipshit. Him and Cam both suck donkey balls, but Cam can at least be called a rapper. Jones is wack as hell and never was tight. He is just another one of these fake as wanna c bloods trying to capitalize of what started and remains in the west, gangstaz!

  • Vic De Zen

    This is another one of those pointless beefs in hip hop where both parties are suffering when they could really help each other out. Jim Jones is nothing without Cam and vice versa, although Cam has a better chance of doing something on his own moreso than JJ. Cam’s a better talent.

  • http://www.xxlmag.com Jim Jones’ roaches

    Y’all some clowns! Jimmy is good to us, leavin half ate dorito bags and old ass pizza on the floor! He loves us. Sometimes we sneak in his jeans, but my cousin got squished once, tight ass pants, so we fell back and just chill in the tour bus. Long live Jimmy! Camron too clean for us, so fuck him.

  • Face Phoenix

    I always liked Cam ever since Confessions of Fire [Which I still play to this day] but I haven’t heard anything special from him since Purple Haze. The rift between him and Jim seems to one of those cases when one guy is getting all the attention and his right hand man wants to be him. Jim is cool and Juelz is alright but they and Cam don’t seem to be able to produce a decent product without one another. Crime Pays was disappointing and so was Pray IV Reign. What they need to do is but their differences aside and make some money and find some producers to help them make some heat. They may have not been the strongest faction in Hip Hop but they were always entertaining. When the money starts drying up don’t be surprised if they pull it together… let’s just hope that happens before no one gives a damn anymore.

  • http://jango.com/blublack BluBlack

    JIM IS JUST MAD CAUSE CAM CAN PUSH THE BUTTON, MEANING,IF HE WANTS IT TOO POP OFF, IT WILL, IF HE DONT WANT IT TO, IT WONT, its crazy cause if they all had doe like that,Santana, and Jim, they wouldnt need to do another DIPSET Album, if they had doe Like they want us to believe.So the saying is true, MONEY CHANGES PEOPLE, YOU NEVER KNOW WHO YOUR FRIENDS REALLY ARE UNTILL YALL BOTH HAVE DOE, THEN YOULL KNOW WHAT HE REALLY THINKS ABOUT YOU. tHEY ALL NEED THE DIPSET ALBUM,CAM, TO GET BACK ON THE RADIO, AND SAN AND JIM, TO MAKE MORE DOE, CAUSE IF THEY DONT MAKE MORE MONEY, WE WILL SEE MORE RAPPERS OWING THE I.R.S MONEY.

    Jim Jones and Cam were running a label. Egos got in the way. Cam does have ownership though so Jim can’t go around saying he is Dipset. Dipset was Hell Rell, 40 Cal, Duke the God, Juelz, Cam, Jim Jones, JR Writer, etc. It wasn’t just one person.

    Thanksgiving is 1 of my favorite holidays, and each yr I like to get into the mood-extend the holiday, when it were-by reading “Thanksgiving novels.” Of course, those stories are mostly about friends and family, about coming together to heal old hurts and showing thanks for the gift of love. . .. =
