Rapper Jim Jones has been keeping busy with his Dipset brethren for an upcoming reunion record, but he isn’t turning his back on his solo career. The Diplomat Records co-CEO is currently prepping the release of his fifth solo LP, ‘Capo,’ which is tentatively set for a September 28 release via his new label home E1 Records, according to sources close to Jim.

The album, which follows last year’s ‘Pray IV Reign,’ is lead by the first single, ‘Salute’ featuring Cam’ron and Juelz Santana. A video will soon follow for the Araab Muzik-produced track – the first release from a reunited Dipset – with director Dale ‘Rage’ Resteghini at the helm. Though details on the album are currently scant, the Harlemite’s fifth offering is already available for pre-order on Amazon, long ahead of its fall release.

‘Capo’ is the beginning of a new chapter for Jones, who parted ways with Columbia Records in December 2009, following the release of his last solo album, ‘Pray IV Reign.’ Since cutting ties with the label, the emcee has squashed his long-standing beef with former Diplomats member Cam’ron, playing a celebrity basketball game on the same team and recording new tracks in the studio.

He also released a new mixtape, ‘The Ghost of Rich Porter,’ in March 2010, and later dabbled in academia by teaching a high school class about the music industry.
