Jim Jones Calls Cam'ron "The Best Rapper," Says Juelz Santana "Could Be Greater Than Jay-Z"

Jim Jones says that Cam'ron and Juelz Santana are two of the best rappers he's ever heard.

Even though the Diplomats' long-awaited reunion LP has been nothing more than rumor mill fodder for a few years, that doesn't mean the Dips are back on bad terms. Now, in a recent editorial with SOHH, rapper Jim Jones talks about his Harlem partners Cam'ron and Juelz Santana.

In a recent editorial piece, Jim Jones listed his top five favorite rappers in the game, naming the likes of Fabolous, Lil Wayne and Rick Ross. His Dipset brethren topped the list, however, with Jim declaring Cam "the best rapper" and saying that Juelz could have been bigger than Jay-Z.

"I'm going with Juelz Santana. I always told Juelz he could be greater than Jay-Z ever was. That boy is super talented. Listen to everything he's done and what his music says," he said. "I gotta name Cam'ron. I think Cam is the best rapper. Period. I've known Cam and I've grown up with him. I've seen, lived and witnessed all the things that his music is about. So you can't beat that at all. That's actual and factual."

Check out the full list over at SOHH.

    They aight but i wouldn't compare them to no Wu-Tang. And its a Shame this nigga Jimmy is from Harlem Claiming niggas like Lil Wayne and Rick Ross as the best niggas in the game. That nigga is really dick riding. Jimmy aint never been no great lyricist but he makes good music sometimes. Im actually not suprised he is a fan of Wayne and Ross cause they simple like Jimmy.

    • Diplomat

      Even I have to agree with you there. THIS NIGGA DELUSIONAL thinking Wayne and Ross are top 5 rappers! The dickriding for these fake rappers has gone waaaaay too far!

  • desyds

    I do like Juelz, What the Game's Been Missing has some great shit on it and his tape with Wayne is a classic tape in its own right. Jones is on something comparing him to Hov...but what can u expect. He was always the weak link in Dipset, shit even Freeky Zeeky was better than him, lol.

    I f*cks with Jimmy but he's outta his damn mind when he says Cam is the best ever and Julez could be greater then Jay. Chrissy got his mind all f*cked up! Lol

  • lux

    News to jimmy....juelz is a mixtape artist just like papoose...dont ever mention HOVS name and any of dipset in the same sentence...and lil weezy will never be great because he has ghost writers and hes a bubble gum rapper, but if thats what yall like then fuck it...

  • Crack Pipe

    To all the youngn's talkin smack, even Hov himself called Juelz the next Jay Z back when From Me To U dropped on Rocafella...before he started drinking too much cough syrup, Santana was one of the best young rappers doing it.

    • Anonymous

      Rappers say alot of things in the heat of the moment. Would you believe Eminem if he said Joe Budden's next album would go platinum in a week? Juelz was never super talented to begin with. He had opportunities, but alot of mediocre rappers have opportunities. At some point, you just have to look at somebody's body of work (or lack of it) to decide where their place in hip hop is.

      Was is the key word, but everyone makes mistakes. Juelz was nothing close to Jigga.

    Niggas must not remember how Juelz was killin tracks when he was younger. At first I though he and wayne were goin to take over the game, but that nigga got lazy and wayne smartened up and starting putting out bullshit cause he knew niggas were goin to buy his shit jus because he was lil wayne lol. Back when juelz was younger i wouldve defended that statement jim jones made, but now heeeell no. Juelz should've, could've, would've been better than jay z, but he didn't and he never will be now. And cam'ron not even the best spitter in dipset so how is he the best rapper period? lol

  • Anonymous

    50 Cent ethered Camron. There wont be any comeback for that nobody. & Juelz Santana, another bum. What he does do? Hang around with other Z listers smoking weed & going to clubs. Pair of musical frauds & it shows how stupid & gullible people are.

    C'mon Jim really? NOTHING Juelz has done comes close to anything Jay has done. And im solely speaking musically. Compare Juelz to somebody else. And cam the best rapper? FOH ! Not wit his nursery school rhymes

    • LOL

      I think Jay-Z is nothing special. Annoying voice and weak beats. But he is 1000 times better than these idiots. They are even worse.

  • OnemikE

    Yea I dunno about that Jim, I like Cam and Juelz but better then Jay that may be a wild statement... About Cam I think he meant since he came up with him and dats his boy so he is bias and feels he the best like showin his loyalty to Cam. Juelz.... Like I said wild wild statement... Jay doesnt even have to pull out majority of his catalog to smash anyone. He can jus sit back and pull out Reasonable Doubt and be like Juelz what you did in your whole brief career I can smash with my first LP....

    no fuckin way. you cant even put these nigguz in the same sentence as Jay-Z. Juelz never had a classic album. Matter of fact, Juelz aint put an album out since 05!!!!! this nigga jim jones a pussy anyway so his opinion doesnt count

    Cam Jim n Julez all of them trash

  • Killa Cam for King of New York

    Cam'ron has always been nicer than Jay and Juelz is nicer too. It's too bad their business slowed them up. If Jay would have responded to Cam's diss, Cam would have destroyed Jay's career and Jigga knew that.

      jay a pussy and everybody know it. jay would say his one lines here and their but no names. cam track against jay was hot. who can fuck wit me no mammal but i toute handles at your open toe sandals plus you look like joe camel. Jay wasnt wit it. he already took an l wit nas. cam track against nas was fire too. disrespected the kings and neither tried to response. niggas can front all they want but they didnt response cuz they knew that cam could spit. Im not saying cam is better than them in terms of the music they put out. im just saying that cam can spar with them.

    Wow look at all the irrelevants posting hate. I'm sure your 9-5 sux and your social life is even worse. You all are a bunch of haters dissing artist who earn real cash at their craft. To all those putting these skilled emcees ( they get paid to do this, you don't) down, I ask what do you do for a living? Exactly...quit snitchin and stop the hate...bunch of crabs, get out of the bucket without pulling someone else down.

      Who gives a fuck how much money they (supposedly)make. As fans/comsumers,the only thing we need to worry about is the music they put out because thats what we get out of it all. . Thats so woman-like of u to idolize and virtually brag about anothers mans financial status. And we're sure YOUR 9-5 and social life sucks if u are sitting here breathlessly glorifying that they make money and everybody else doesnt....FUCK OUTTA HERE.. grow a pair

    Jim is fuggin delusional for this one. You crazy for this one, Jimmy! *Jigga voice* Juelz can't even drop a simple fuggin mixtape, and he got the potential to be "greater" than Hov ???

  • chris roman

    Its really too bad cuz Dipset was the ticket like 6 years ago but I hope these guys invested well. If not they can always get free beats from @ChrisRomanMusic who always says #FuckYourBeats cuz the new dispet beats are gabbage

  • NY-Harlem

    Hate to say it but Dip Set is done for. Not to many people care about these niggas. 6 years ago Jim Jones actually had a little run going on for himself. But its pretty much over for him now. Cam need to push that Vado nigga out. He got potential to be hot but the rest of them dude is washed up and i hate to say. Jimmy better hope his show with his Girl(Chrissy i swear he could get a better bitch then her she is worthless) cause this music shit niggas don't care about him. And i say that cause i heard some nice singles from him but no one is bumping that shit.

  • ETK

    Jim shut your ass up. dickriding your homeboys means nothing. the worst part is I think Juelz Santana is alright at best and I been waitin to hear shit from him for a minute, now this nigga's comin out here runnin his mouth

  • Anonymous

    He did two other interviews a few years ago were he says Nas and Jay-Z are the best. lol

    • Ny-harlem

      Exactly i remember that shit. And Cam'ron is supposed to be Nice like Nas or JayZ but that nigga have been falling of since SDE and Confession of Fire. Back in those days Cam use to spit that real shit. Alot of real substance and content. Now that nigga Cam be spitting about a bunch of bullshit. He still is aight tho but that nigga is far from the nicest nigga. In fact ima say it that nigga Cam is wack to me now.(he do pick out hot beats.) I understand what Jimmy is saying about Jewels. Jewels got some shit with him lyrically and alot of people don't understand. But that nigga is far from Jay-Z level. More importantly Jewels is only good for about 5 hot songs a whole album. He is one of those dudes who can rhyme but need alot of guidess making a complete song.

  • PuCho

    Wow i needed a good laugh.

  • hmm really?

    Theres no Doubt that theres other Rappers out there that Mightve been or can be better than Jay Z....but Juelz is Definitely NOT one of them....
