After months of rumors and speculation, Diplomat member Juelz Santana confirmed that Dipset is set and locked in to a deal with Interscope Records. According to Santana, Diplomat fans can anticipate new things in the coming year under the Interscope domain.
"It's back to live action, it's back to doing what we do best," Santana explained in an interview. "We got the deal with Interscope. Shout-out to [Interscope Records CEO] Jimmy Iovine. I'm sure people seen the pictures up of us and [Dr.] Dre, so, you know, we've done records with Dre. That was a beautiful experience. Dre had Jim [Jones] in the booth for like an hour and a half…" (Ozone Mag)
In related news, fellow Dipset member Cam'ron recently spoke about his studio sessions with Interscope's Dr. Dre.
He definitely made me rap my verse like 33 times," Jones told us this past week about working with the good doctor. "It was cool. It was a great experience." Cam'ron also experienced Dre's penchant for perfectionism: "He made me get out and do my verse over," he recalled. "He's real intricate. Basically, he was like, 'I want this kind of flow,' and he'll mumble it out," the slick-witted MC continued, explaining the process. "It was like, 'Yo, go do that again; it's terrible.'" (MTV)
