When news hit of a Dipset 10th Anniversary show in New York, the Hip Hop world was more than excited. Now, during an interview with Hip Hop Since 1987, Juelz Santana explains why the show at B.B. Kings may not be the only reunion that fans can expect from the crew. ”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,” Juelz said. The Dipset member also explained that the possible album would have to be “something close” to the first album the group dropped when they released Diplomatic Immunity in 2003. ”We’ve been talking about it, we want to do it right. The first Diplomatic Immunity album was a double-CD classic,” he said. “So if we give the people something, we got to give them something close to that.” Juelz also spoke about the March 25th anniversary show and explained that being back on the stage with his collegues feels only natural. ”It’s always good to be on stage with Cam and Jim,” he said. ”When you get on stage everything falls into place, everything feels good. I didn’t know 10 years went by so fast though, that’s a beautiful thing for us to be pushing that 10th Anniversary of Dipset, I’m proud of that. We set real high standards out there for crews so it’s a good thing.”
Watch the full interview below (via Hip Hop Since 1987):
This is a very rough time for Chris Bosh and his wife Adrienne. After having been blasted by Lil Wayne during the 2013 NBA All-Star Weekend for allegedly sleeping with him, she managed to brush off his hurtful attempt to expose her by tweeting a series of positive, upbeat tweets. Now, she has yet another claim coming against her for her alleged past behavior. This time it’s Cam’ron, who chose to drop dimes on Adrienne and expose some skeletons in her closet. He posted a throwback picture of her with another woman standing with two men, with a caption that claims one of his boys “been had bosh wifey under wing b4 Wayne.” He also claimed that she used to get absolutely wasted and party hard at his Cincinnati nightclub.
Neither Adrienne or Chris have commented on the new outrageous claims made by Cam’ron, but she has continued to post a series of positive tweets to hopefully brush off the multiple attempts to try and expose her until the heat dies down. If these claims are true, and Adrienne used to be a heavy party girl who slept with Lil Wayne and one of Cam’ron’s boys in the past before she hooked up with Chris Bosh and started a family with him, then it hopefully won’t effect their marriage, since it was in the past.
How do you feel about Wayne and Cam coming forward now at a seemingly random time and airing out Adrienne Bosh’s dirty laundry? Do you think it’s unnecessary to do so now that she is happily married and obviously not a party girl at this time? Do you think she or Chris Bosh will ever come forward and publicly address these claims?
Harlem rapper Juelz Santana may no longer be in a contract with Cam’ron and Diplomat Records, but in a recent interview with Vlad TV he revealed that despite the break-up with the label he still has a great deal of respect for Cam’ron. The former Diplomat Records artist revealed that while many things didn’t quite come to fruition, he is grateful to Cam’ron for jumpstarting his career. “Yeah, I been out of my deal with Cam for about two years now. One thing I respect is Cam brought me to the water,” Juelz explained. “A lot of things ain’t transpire, but at the end of the day I come from nothing. I’m able to eat… Just him giving me that I would never – I gotta be so grateful for that. Things could have went better in other areas cause I was so loyal… He blueprinted that building, but I placed them bricks in there.” After expressing his thanks to the Dipset founder, Juelz spoke briefly on his first time meeting with Cam’ron. “I was actually in a group with my partner Malik,” said the rapper. “We had a group called Draft Pick. One day, make a long story short, this guy comes through in the 600 on my block. Calls me out the window, calls my mother. He look out the window, ‘Yo tell Juelz come down I got Cam in the car.’ He got Cam in the car. I come downstairs Cam’s in the car sleeping… I just start rapping. It was kinda history from there.”
Vado has signed a deal with DJ Khaled‘s We The Best label, a subsidiary of Cash Money Records. Taking to Twitter, the Cam’Ron affiliate wrote that he is “taking my talents 2 South Beach #WTB.” He also retweeted one of his followers that wrote, “@VADO_MH COMING OUT WITH HIS NEW TAPE AND SIGNING WITH KHALID #ITSAGOODYEAR.” The Harlem, New York rapper previously signed with Interscope Records in March 2011. He got relatively silent on the music front, fueling rumors that he had been dropped from the label. He recently gave an interview where he explained how the company heeded his request to leave the company on his own accord. “I feel like I shouldn’t have even went all the way to the West Coast,” he said. “I feel I should’ve stayed grounded with the New York labels. They understand and know me so they know how to handle me, they know what to do. You go all the way over there; they don’t know what’s going on. So now, I gotta fix everything up and I gotta work with their music. It was just a whole big difference to the point that I had to ask for my walking papers.”
Cam’Ron is making an honest woman out of his girlfriend? Say it ain’t so. Well word is that Cam presented JuJu with an engagement ring worth $100K. You can’t be a bachelor forever, so what else did you expect from Killa? [Note: Cam'Ron hasn't confirmed this engagement and the source is Mediatakout, that is all] If you follow the Harlem rapper‘s Twitter and/or Instagram then you have no doubt seen photos of his amply hipped and bootied wife to be. That being said, we found it our duty to showcase shots of JuJu, who we admittedly know little about beyond these pics and her Twitter bio that reads, “Entrepreneur & overall business woman making power moves.” Also, she is officially licensed to carry a concealed weapon or firearm. But hey, rappers have a right to a certain level of privacy, and not everyone needs to parade their significant others around all the damn time (see: Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa). Check out pics of Cam’s wifey below.
Whether it’s no-shows from Nas and Rick Ross or impostors pretending to be MF DOOM, there are countless horror stories of live Hip Hop shows gone awry. Now, according to HipHopWired, one Brooklyn promoter says Cam’ron stood him up at a performance to the tune of $7,000. Lou Galluch, a party promoter based in Brooklyn, alleges that the Dipset emcee accepted money to perform at Galluch’s annual New Year’s Eve party “The Shanks,” but never showed. Galluch says that he lost a total of $7,000 over the failed performance. According to Galluch, he was able to book Cam’ron for the event for $8,000 through a mutual contact. However, one day before the party, Galluch’s contact had to leave town on family business and referred him to Cam’s DJ Moe Sticky to complete the business deal. ”So I meet [Moe Sticky] that next day [Sunday], and I said, ‘Bring the signed contracts and I’ll give you the money,’” Galluch told the Village Voice. “He shows up with no contracts, and I have the money. This is the day before New Year’s, everything is happening. Promotion has gone out, pre-sales are coming in…and they show up with no contracts…[my original contact says,] ‘Yeah, [Cam'ron]‘s gonna show, give [Moe] the money.’” Following the exchange, Galluch gave Moe Sticky a $3,000 deposit with the assurance that Cam would show at the event. However, when it came time for the Dipset rapper to hit the stage, he was no where to be found. Galluch recalls that Cam’ron was supposed to hit the stage around 3 AM; however, the venue wasn’t packed at that time, and Galluch requested that Cam wait until 4:30 AM to perform. Moe Sticky reportedly agreed to the new terms, but only if Galluch gave him another $2,000 of the performance bill. When it came time for the Purple Haze rapper to hit the stage, however, Galluch claims that Cam’ron, Moe Sticky and company had left with the money in tow. Moe Sticky tells a different story, however. The DJ claims that Galluch was supposed to give him the rest of the money prior to the performance, but only had $2,000 at the time. Moe Sticky added that the initial $3,000 was part of of a standard $4,000 deposit for Cam’s performance. As of now, Galluch has no plans of following through with a lawsuit and doesn’t blame Cam’ron himself for the situation. via:hiphopdx
