Cam’ron is one of the most defining voices of early 00s rap music. As a member of The Diplomats, the Harlem-bred rapper experienced commercial success and went on to earn multiple RIAA certified projects. Due to qualms with Roc-A-Fella label head Jay-Z, he eventually separated his Diplomat Records banner from the label in 2005 and signed a new deal. The rap legend recently sat down with N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN on the latest episode of Revolt’s “Drink Champs” to divulge more details about the frenemy relationship he and Jay- Z had at the start of the millennia, naming a specific incident where the two sabotaged each other in the studio.
He continued, “So, he’s like, I’m not signed to them n*ggas, Cam, so we did the song. So, Peedi’s playing the song for Jay-Z and whoever else is in the studio. He says he’s in the studio playing it and my verse comes on and JAY says, ‘Stop it. Erase that sh*t’ and just erased my whole verse.”
