As a key member of the legendary Diplomats, Jim Jones has been at the center of many classic stories throughout his long-running career. As it happens, one such story was shared by none other than Mariah Carey, who took a moment to fondly reflect on a Dipset memory in her recent autobiography The Meaning Of Mariah Carey.

Though the full page is out of frame, it appears that Mariah’s anecdote centers around a night out with Jim Jones, Cam’ron, and Juelz Santana; while it’s unclear what matter of mischief they got up to, it seems as if “clubbing” and “cocktails” were involved to some degree. It should be noted that Carey previously collaborated with Jones, Juelz, and Cam on the street remix to “Boy (I Need You),” produced by longtime Roc producer Just Blaze — it might explain how the artists ended up crossing paths in the first place.
“When u get mentions in @mariahcarey new book wow @mr_camron we always talk bout them nights especially when we was stuck in aspen Christmas Eve and snuck in th airport to get home on time for Christmas,” captions Jones, alongside a screenshot from Mariah’s autobiography. “Young n havin fun #DIPSET wait till th movie.” Clearly, Jones appreciates Carey’s fond inclusion of the Dipset benders, as they appear to have left a lasting impression on him as well.
