Jim Jones Speaks On Beef With Cam’Ron

Earlier this year, Jim Jones and Cam’Ron got a little petty on Instagram. On the anniversary of the Diplomats‘ debut album, Diplomatic Immunity Volume 1, Jim posted the album cover on his page, and added in the caption, “Somebody tell #KillaCam to unblock me lol.” A couple of weeks later, they took a few shots at each other in the comments of one of Cam‘s photos – but it was nothing out of the realm of usual sibling pettiness. (They’re not actually brothers, but they might as well be.)

Juelz Santana Reportedly Loses NJ Home In Foreclosure

Juelz Santana has reportedly lost his New Jersey condo to foreclosure. (Hmm – maybe that’s why he’s so eager to release new music now after all this time.) According to Bossip, a judge issued a final foreclosure judgment against the Harlem rapper on April 22, giving him 10 days to respond. He ignored it, however, so it will now be sold at a sheriff’s sale. The filed documents show that Juelz took out a $486,000 mortgage to pay for the $540,000 condo in 2005, but stopped paying Wells Fargo the $3,754 a month mortgage in November 2013. In total, he owes $688,219, plus $7,000 in lawyers’ fees.

The End Of An Era: Cam’Ron Announces His Final Album Ever

This past Sunday made a full decade since Cam’Ron released his classic album, Purple Haze. Since then, Dip Set’s fearless leader has gone on to release 2006’s Killa Season and 2009’s Crime Pays, followed by a pair of joint albums with his former artist Vado, and a handful of EPs. Prior to Purple Haze, Cam had made his mark in music with other classics like his 1998 debut Confessions of Fire, followed by 2000’s S.D.E. and my favorite of all time, 2002’s Come Home With Me. The latter reintroduced Killa after a brief hiatus, and introduced his Dip Set crew, setting the stage for what would become one of the most iconic and influential groups in the history of hip-hop. It’s Dip Set ’til the wheels fall off, b. Suffice to say, Cam’Ron has had a fruitful and storied music career, and he’s now ready to move on to the next chapter.

(Photos) So Dope! Kinship Bomber Jackets Pay Tribute To Dip Set, Bad Boy, 90s ‘Golden Era’ Of Hip-Hop

While at work at Hot 97 a few weeks back, Jim Jones and his boy Reggie stopped by, and I couldn’t help but notice the SICK Dip Set bomber jacket that Ebro was wearing while interviewing the Capo. Turns out it’s from Reggie’s Kinship brand, and there are a few other super dope bombers in the line as well! In celebration of Bad Boy‘s 20th anniversary, Kinship dropped the “Bad Boy Bomber” this week, featuring an all-over print of all of the label’s greatest albums, from the Biggie and Ma$e era, to modern day with the likes of French Montana and Janelle Monae. The Diplomats “Dipped” bomber features classic Dip Set covers from the mixtapes to official albums, like Diplomats Vol. 2, Purple Haze, Diplomatic Immunity, From Me To You and more. The last jacket pays homage to the “Golden Era” of hip-hop, featuring 50 classic albums of the 90s, including Nas‘ Illmatic, Snoop‘s Doggy Style and Dr. Dre’s The Chronic. A little birdie told me there’s a new one on the way as well, just for those 90s girls that grew up on Mariah, Janet, Aaliyah, etc.! The jackets are all 100% satin with a satin lining (purple for Bad Boy, red for Dip Set, black for the Golden Era) and a full zipper front. Take a closer look at them in the gallery and head to Kinship’s site to cop!
