While appearing on Hoodrich Radio this week, Harlem emcee Cam’ron revealed the reason why a new Dipset album has yet to happen. According to the Crime Pays rapper, a conflict in schedules is the primary reason those who are a part of the Harlem-based crew have yet to record tracks for a new The Diplomats project.
Cam’ron later went on to state that the end-product would not be genuine if those in Dipset were to knock out the album in a short period of time.
“Well, you know we all good with each other,” said Cam. “It’s about everybody—everybody still got a lot going on. You know what I’m saying? It’s about everybody just being on the same page and not being busy. Everybody got something going on right now. So, we all just gotta get on the same page and if we get the time, but it’s definitely all love. It’s just about nobody wants to sit in the studio for a week and just do a Dipset album cause it wouldn’t be genuine. So, basically we trying to figure out the time schedule so we can do it and get it right.”
A Dipset album may not be in the works at the moment, but in the meantime Cam’ron has again shifted his attention to acting. At the top of next year, he plans on introducing a new video series titled “First Of The Month.” The monthly series will consist of 30-minute episodes, which will be accompanied by new music.
“What I’m doing is I’m working on a series right now it’s called ‘First Of The Month’,” Cam’ron said. “And what I’mma start doing is instead of like putting out a movie every month, I mean every year or two years, etc. we’re doing like 30-minute episodes where it comes out on the first of the month and the name of the series is ‘First Of The Month.’ And we gon’ put music out every month with the series. Right now I’m working on a deal figuring out where we gonna distribute it at, but it’ll definitely be out the top of the year in January.”
Most recently, Cam released Ghetto Heaven Vol.1, a mixtape which dropped on October 1. Amidst tracks featuring the likes of 2 Chainz and Shy Boogs, the mixtape also features a handful of skits and according to the Dipset founder, it was through social media that he found the inspiration for that particular addition to his mixtape.
“The skits on this joint basically came from—you know Instagram is poppin’, so everybody be talking about it and they hear what girls be arguing about,” he said. “And when guys be seeing this catfish and this, that, and the third, so I just put one together cause one of my homegirls was mad about her boyfriend liking a girls picture or something like that. So, we just put it together from there.”
Over the past couple of years, various members of Dipset have offered updates on a new album from the Harlem crew. In March of this year, Juelz Santana revealed that there are “definitely” plans for an in-studio reunion among those in Dipset.
"We definitely going to get back in the studio and start working on some music and if the vibe is good and the music is coming out the way it's supposed to come out. We going to put that record out," said Juelz during an interview with HipHopSince1987.
