Jim Jones opens up about his relationship with Cam'ron on "Back In My Prime."

Jim Jones and Cam’ron haven’t necessarily been spotted together in recent times, though it seemed like it was largely due to their busy schedules. Cam’ron’s expanding the Flee Farm brand with endeavors in cannabis and his all-natural male supplement, Pink Horse Power. Meanwhile, Jim Jones has been delivering some of the best music in his career over the past few years with projects like El Chapo, Wasted Talent, and Back In My Prime with Hitmaka which he released over this weekend.

Back In My Prime not only showcases Jim Jones’ versatility, especially when it comes to crafting hits, but he also dives into some personal matters. On “Status Update,” for example, he sheds light on some issues weighing on him including his friendship with Cam’ron. Though the two recently appeared together at Drake’s Apollo Theatre show with the rest of Dipset, Jones admitted that they aren’t seeing “eye to eye” lately. “And it’s hard for me & Cam to see eye-to-eye/ I love him, I still love him but when I see him it’s like hi & bye,” he raps. “It’s kinda crazy, I thought it was ride or die.”

Jim Jones & Cam’ron’s Fractured Relationship

Though Jim Jones and Cam’ron’s relationship hasn’t deteriorated completely, as it once was, he said during an interview in Feb. 2022 that he and Cam’ron hadn’t talked or seen each other since Verzuz in August 2021. He didn’t say that there were any issues. However, he explained that he had to offer Cam his own earnings from Verzuz to get him to agree to appear at the face-off against The Lox. “Cam don’t care about too much, he makes money and that’s what he cares about,” Jones admitted.

However, years prior, Cam’ron said that Dipset was officially over in the midst of his feud with Jim Jones. The “We Fly High” rapper appeared on Funk Flex where he shed tears when asked about the sacrifices he made for Cam’ron and Dipset. Cam later addressed his comments and downplayed Jim’s overall feelings. Eventually, they buried the hatchet to reunite as Dipset before unveiling their 2018 EP, Diplomatic Ties. Still, the two recently worked together on Cam’ron’s U Wasn’t There EP on the single, “Think Boy” alongside Styles P
