Video After The Jump
The current state of The Diplomats is up in the air. The group that has blessed us with so many street anthems appears to be going through some internal turmoil after Cam’Ron took Jim Jones off of his “Oh Yeah” single and blocked him on Instagram.
“Things happen … sh*t, you get older. Every book has chapters. This one book you can’t go back and read the last chapter,” Jim told Ebro in the Morning during a recent interview. “I don’t know [if it’s over] but I ain’t tripping, ya dig? I ain’t gon’ go through all the back and forth and keep doing all these interviews and people keep asking me about Dipset and when is the next Diplomats album or why don’t y’all put a song out.”
Jim says he wasn’t aware he and Killa had serious issues until he found out his longtime partner-in-rhyme had blocked him on Instagram.
“I thought it was a joke,” Jim continued. “I realized it on the day of the Diplomatic Immunity thirteenth anniversary. I was actually trying to put the cover of the album up and tag Zeke, Juelz and your man and I was blocked.”
Jim also addressed the issue regarding Cam’s song “Oh Yeah.”
“To tell you the truth somebody called me and was talking to me about the record,” he explained. “And they was like ‘He took your verse off that record.’ ‘Cause I didn’t hear the record. I just thought it was a Juelz and Killa record. Respect, that’s Dipset all day. Then I was like ‘What? Somebody pull the record up. Let me hear what record this is.’ And lo and behold it was a record I had jumped on. So when you ask about Diplomat records, don’t ask me. There were Diplomat records. There are Diplomat records. Somehow, I’m not making the cut.”
