Cam’ron & Jim Jones Speak on Diplomats Reunion

With all the talk of a possible Dipset Reunion getting fans excited as of late, many were skeptical that it was just that, talk. Until this past weekend, when Cam’ron showed up in Atlanta to support his estranged friend, Jim Jones’s basketball team at the Converse Band of Ballers Tournament.

The Capo’s team, the Jones Family, took home the championship on Saturday (May 1) for the second year in a row, beating out the Shawty Lo, OJ Da Juicemean and Pill’s Southern Hospitality team, but the real news was that another Diplomats album was already in the works.

MTV was on hand at the event and spoke to the Dipset co-founders about the possibility of another group project. “We working, everything is working,” Cam said. “Right now, we’re doing a couple of songs. We’re trying to get the business together. Right now we’re just doing music.” [Watch below]

Jones is hoping they can get their respective individual obligations out of the way and deliver something for the holiday season. “Me and Cam both got our own things going on, solo projects and label situations, but we going to put this Diplomat thing together real funky,” he said. “That powerful music will be back at you. It should be a good Christmas stocking stuffer, but we’re going to heat it up like the summer.”

In the meantime Killa is working with his new protégé Vado, collectively known as The U.N. on their studio album, and has plans to drop their new DJ Drama mixtape, Boss of all Bosses 2.5 on Wednesday. Jones is currently putting together his mixtape with DJ Scream, Coke Rush Pt. 1.

  • http://xxlmag jayruckNYC

    My real down south dudes dont pay attention to clowns like “capo status”. He”s a joke. lol. Anyway its good to see them reuniting. Musically i’m not really checking for it tho.

  • Donald Dump

    I can totally see Juelz getting the shaft, due to the money he will be asking for. They will slide Vado into his spot and let Freaky well out stupid shit. Cam and Jim will make 80% of the profits 50% to Cam and 30% to Jim and the rest to the others. If they come correct, it could be the tits.

  • http://www.emcdl.com EmCDL

    Regardless of this reunion, Jim Jones still look dirty as hell

  • MR.UNDI$PUTED THE MOGUL

    I DON’T CARE IF YOUR A DIPLOMAT FAN OR NOT. THIS IS A PRIME EXAMPLE OF SOMEONE DOING SOMETHING STRICTLY FOR THE CHANCE TO MAKE $$$$! LET’S SEE CAM’RON HAD THE TALENT, RHYMES ETC. JIM WAS HIS FRIEND & HYPEMAN WITH NO TALENT AT ALL. THEY GOT WITH SOME OTHER FRIENDS HAD A LITTLE MINI DYNASTY BUILDING & THEN, WHEN JIM THOUGHT HE’D BECOME A STAR, HE DIDN’T NEED CAM ANYMORE. HE EVEN TOOK THE STAGE ALONG WITH JUELZ BASICALLY DURING THE LYRICAL BEEF WITH 50 CENT, WHO HAD THE NERVE TO SAY THAT CAM WAS BEING DEMOTED WITHIN THE CREW HE WAS LEADER OF. NOW ABOUT 2 YEAR’S LATER, JIM’S CAREER & ALL THOSE WACK ASS SIDE PROJECTS HAVE FLOPPED & NOW HE WANTS TO BE FRIENDS AGAIN. CAM IS ALWAYS GOING TO HAVE TALENT WHETHER WITH THE DIPS OR NOT, SO THEY NEED HIM, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND. NO ONE IS FUCKING WITH JIM, JUELZ OR ZEEKEY OR WAITING ON ANY OF THEIR ALBUMS, MEANWHILE THE STREETS ARE FUCKING WITH BOSS OF ALL BOSSES 2 & 2.5 AS WELL AS VADO IS HEATING SHIT UP. ALL I CAN SAY TO CAM IS I HOPE WHATEVER YOUR GETTIN PAID FOR THIS IS WORTH YOUR DIGNITY. THESE 2 LITERALLY STABBED YOU IN THE BACK & DIDN’T STAND BESIDE YOU AGAINST 50 CENT LIKE THEY WILL ON THE ALBUM COVER THEY’RE GOING TO GET PAID FROM!

    PEACE & GET MONEY!!!
    MOGUL $$$ GAME ’10!!

  • Face Phoenix

    Good to see them back together [most likely because they made more money together rather than apart]. Whether this is a business move or a legitimate reunion it is good to see grown men putting their differences aside for the purpose of a common goal. I never was a huge fan of the crew but their album will be something I’ll keep an eye out for in the coming months.

  • El Tico Loco

    Cam got on with Big L and Ma$e and I’m yet to hear him or Ma$e give him any credit.

    • http://www.bboycult.com $yk

      That last Vado video has a Big L sample in it. Doing that for any type of royalties is a good look.

  • Q461

    This is a good look for hip hop! Cam, Jimmy, Juelz, Hell Rell, Freaky, Vado, Mel Matrix, if only Max-B was outta jail… Hip hop needs more reunions and cats coming together, no homo. DIPSET!
