Even when we announced that a Dipset truce had been reached back in April, I was hopeful but cautious about the whole thing. There are truces that are forced by necessity, truces that are prompted by opportunity, and truces that happen because the parties realize their shared experience outweighs their disagreements.
Now, 6 months later, the outlook is looking great. There’s that “Salute” single, no tension about Cam’s separate project (Vado), the Hot97 Dipset Reunion concert, a major label deal pending, a tour on the way, and more ; )
All four founding members, Cam, Jim, Juelz and Freekey visited Hot97 to talk to Angie Martinez about the reunion, and the best thing about it was that both on and off the air, the camaraderie seemed real, rather than showbiz.
Cam’ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana, and Freekey Zekey, on Angie Martinez: Part 1
An intro to the interview…
Cam’ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana, and Freekey Zekey, on Angie Martinez: Part 2 The guys get started with jokes about Freekey’s time in jail during the “Ballin'” period, all the things that Freekey tried to do to get Jim and Cam to talk to each other during the beef, and then Angie asks about Cam’s recent Kanye diss. It was not all about defending Dame, lol….
Cam’ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana, and Freekey Zekey, on Angie Martinez: Part 3 Jim speaks on the groups label deal almost finished, Cam’ron speaks on staying in contact behind the scenes and how to avoid the breakup from happening again.
After the jump trace the posts about the Dipset Reunion, and watch Jimmy’s new Converse commercial…
