Fly Boys: Jim Jones And Cam’ron Are Working On A Collaborative Album

First it was Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch The Throne, then it was Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka’s Ferrari Boyz, it’s rumored that Lil Wayne and Drake are dropping a collaborative LP; now Jim Jones and Cam’ron are doing a collaborative album, titled Fly Boys.

During a recent interview at Invasion Radio with DJ Green Lantern, Jim Jones announced that he is working on a collaborative LP with Cam’ron, titled Fly Boys.

The Diplomats album is a grind in process…I think me and Killa’s Fly Boys album will be out right before the Diplomats album,” says Jim Jones.

On what’s the Fly Boys album is all about.

It’s an album that we set out to do years ago, when we first started the Diplomats movement and we were setting up the different albums we were doing under the Diplomats Records. Juelz and Cam started going platinum and all that. Me and Cam was like we going do a Fly Boys album. We call ourselves Fly Boys. I think I’m pretty fly,” Jones added.

In my opinion, I think this would be a great look for Harlem and will open-up the doors for other aspiring rappers in Harlem.

On working on mixtapes and dropping another one this Fall.

“I’ma keep working mixtapes, I’m gonna do another mixtape, put that out. The next month and a half or so,” he said. “That’s a real important factor. Mixtapes are different from albums, and I don’t want to ever lose that aspect of my career. That’s how I got on.”

On Drake comparisons and being friends with him.

Drake is my homie,” said Sean. “He just borrowed an element of a flow that I made up in ’09 on [the mixtape] UKNOW BIG SEAN. … But he admitted. He was like, ‘Yo, I got that style from Big Sean.’ ‘Cause after he did it, the whole rap game did it.”

On being an opening act on Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “The Throne” tour.

Maybe… It would only be right.”

His relationship with producer No ID, who also produced on his debut CD Finally Famous: The Album.

He was basically the album producer. He’s somebody who I learned a lot from. He really got his hands dirty and spent most of the time on the album,” he explained. “Taught me a lot as a man and how to handle myself. Really one of the good people in this industry, and that’s hard to come by. There’s a lot of fucking sharks, a lot of bitch-ass people in this industry, and he’s one of the real ones.”
