Dipset figurehead and Harlem native Cam’Ron has always had a way of impacting the culture. Whether it was the all-pink fur ensemble at the 2003 Grammy’s or freestyling on BET while dropping green faces on the ground, he always did things his way, which, as you can imagine, has also landed him some formidable enemies.
The beef we see in today’s hip-hop climate not only happens less frequently, but is way less serious than those of the 90’s and early 00’s (the peak of Cam’Ron’s career). Imagine Drake vs Meek Mill, but heightened to the extreme.
Cam’Ron managed to make enemies with fellow New York rappers 50 Cent, Nas and Jay- Z, proving the lack of chill the Harlem rapper has when picking an opponent.
Now, in an interview with thisis50.com Cam’Ron took time to revisit some of the old beefs, his path to reconciliation, and what he’s got planned next for himself.
Cam’Ron on 50:
“Our issues was music. It wasn’t nothing really no big deal. MC Shan and KRS1 had issues. Hip-hop beef been going on for years. That was 10 years ago and we’re moving on to bigger and better things”
Cam’Ron on Jay- Z: “I haven’t spoke to Jay-Z in years but I don’t have a problem with Jay-Z. I respect what Jay-Z has done for the culture.”
Cam’Ron on Nas: “I seen Nas we was cool; we flew back from Vegas together. We was stupid cool.”
I’m not sure if it’s a product of current social issues bringing rappers together or just a matter of enough time going by, but obviously something is in the air with the recent burial of the hatchet.
Cam’Rom has now joined both 50 Cent and The Game in waving the white flag, and I’m not mad about it at all.
Cam’Ron went on further to talk about his plans for television and movies as well as his upcoming music releases, which include “Killa Season 2,” set to drop in November.
