Juelz Santana has announced his support for a potential Diplomats reunion with former group members Jim Jones and CamRon.
In 2007, Dipset disintegrated amid disputes over money and creative differences. The rumored tensions culminated in a public split when Jones and Santana sided with 50 Cent during his battle with Dipset leader CamRon
Last month, Jones and CamRon revealed that they mended their differences in a 3-way phone call with media personality Miss Info, and promised to work together this year on Diplomatic Immunity 3. The talk marked the first conversation between the former best friends in 3 years.
In 2009, Juelz Santana criticized CamRon for denying several song clearances while he was under contract, which Santana believed stalled his career. But the Skull Gang leader is willing to dismiss past grievances and welcomed calls for an official reunion.
Me and Jim have talked about putting the past and everything behind us. I never had no reason to have personal grudges, he told Hot 97s Angie Martinez. I was always willing to move forward. I just have to worry about my future now.
Santana clarified that he is still grateful to CamRon for the initial opportunity he received, and believes they can all come back to the table as established, wiser artists.
I respect the fact he extended that arm and thats something I can never take back, he explained. The blueprint was drawn up and Cam definitely drew it. But I laid down bricks on top of bricks to help that building be what it was But were all bosses now. Im all grown up now and Ive always respected other peoples positions.
Juelz Santana will perform at Hot 97s Summer Jam 2010 on June 6. At press time, Santana would not commit to a Dipset reunion at the event.
