Juelz Santana Addresses Dipset's Kanye Diss, Talks Reunion Album
Juelz tells Funkmaster Flex "Toast" surprised him, since he was almost featured on Kanye's upcoming album.
The Diplomats have been creating a stir since ending their feud with a public reconciliation earlier this year. And the buzz is likely to grow in the wake of Jim Jones and Cam'ron's recent Kanye West diss track. During his most recent radio show, Funkmaster Flex placed a call to the Dipset's Juelz Santana to get his thoughts on the track "Toast" and got a few interesting revelations.
"To be honest, I really just heard the record like a fan...like everyone else," Juelz said. "I didn't even know they did it. Me, Cam and Jim have been speaking, but they must've did that when they were just together. I was on the Internet like, 'Wow!' Cam has always said certain things as far as how he felt about Jay-Z and Kanye. He's never been a person to bite his tongue."
As a soloist, Juelz Santana is Kanye West's labelmate at Def Jam, which may have helped a potential working relationship between the two.
"I actually spoke to Kanye about a month and a half ago," Santana added. "His energy was good, and he was talking about getting me down to Hawaii to work on his album."
The pairing apparently never happened, as West continued working in Hawaii while Santana has been busy with the upcoming Diplomats reunion project.
"We've been in the mix, doing a couple songs back and forth," Juelz revealed. "We're waiting for the deal to go through, which should be due any day now. We're just planning on moving forward, doing it how we do it, and giving the people what they've been waiting for."
In the meantime, Juelz will also be joining Flex and Maino at Asbury Park High School in New Jersey on Saturday September 19 for an Increase The Peace Concert. For more information visit Funkmaster Flex's blog, InFlexWeTrust.
