Money is the root of all evil.
It’s no secret that Jim Jones and Cam’ron aren’t in a safe space right now. The former Diplomats brothers have been squaring off for the past few months, and things appear to be getting worse. Jimmy had an interview with Hot 97’s Ebro in the Morning and candidly spoke on why the future of Dipset is murky.
Jim and Cam always had a “strange relationship.”
During his interview with Hot 97, Jim Jones explained how his relationship with Cam’ron isn’t as good as you would think. “For the most part, me and Cam always had a strange relationship. Not in the beginning — in the beginning, we was like two peas in a bucket, f*ck it. As time goes and you get money and you’re that young with so much power and nobody over you telling you what you should be doing, how you should be moving, you tend to separate. Money makes you your own man, especially when you make a sh*tload of it.”
Jim Jones is shocked to have been cut off Cam’s record.
Jim went berserk when he first found out that his verse was axed from Cam’ron’s “Oh Yeah” featuring Juelz Santana. “Somebody called me and was talking to me about the record and was like, ‘Yo, you know he took your verse off that record?’ Because I didn’t hear the record — I just thought it was a Juelz and Killa record, respect, that’s Dipset all day. But then I was like, ‘What? Somebody pull the record up, lemme hear what record this is.’ And, lo and behold, it was the record I had jumped on. So, you know, when y’all ask about Diplomat records, there are Diplomat records [in existence]. Somehow, I’m not making the cut.”
Jim Jones also revealed that he’s been cut out of Diplomats merchandise.
Besides watching his musical relationship being curtailed by Cam, it appears that Jimmy also doesn’t have any involvement with The Diplomats’ merchandise, as well. “I’ve learned that business is the most important thing in this game…I don’t even indulge in the Diplomat business. That’s more of a Cam thing. When you see a Stance socks or that type of thing, those are moves that him and his team are making.”
