Dipset member Jim Jones was asked in a recent interview about his Harlem-based crew and their lack of a female emcee within their ranks. Jones acknowledged that while fans are looking for every hip hop crew to find their version of Nicki Minaj, Dipset is focused on being themselves.
Jones also revealed that he had reached out to Minaj for a collaboration in the past.
"I actually sent a record out to Nicki Minaj a minute ago," Jones told SOHH. "She said she wasn't really feeling it. I guess she wasn't feeling it, or maybe she wasn't feeling me. But you know, we're on to the next one. Shout-out to Nicki Minaj and to all of her success. She's definitely doing it and sh*t like that but you know. [Wanting a Dipset version of Nicki Minaj?] I never claim to have what somebody is. If we got something, it's whatever they are. You heard me? [laughs] We ain't ever trying to be like nobody else, they try to be like us."
