Drink Champs released their highly anticipated episode with Cam’Ron.
The segment was jam-packed with never-before-told hip hop stories.
The Dipset rapper revealed he wrote Lil Cease’s verse on Lil Kim’s classic “Crush On You.” Cam’Ron shared memories of rapping for the late Notorious B.I.G. After Biggie passed, Cam recorded his debut album, Confessions of Fire. He signed to Undead Entertainment at the time, but things didn’t work out after the team kept comparing his rhymes to Big’s. For that reason, Cam doesn’t consider his debut solo album 100 percent his. Cam said Purple Haze is one of his favorite albums.
The “Oh Boy” rapper spoke on how he seemingly bullied his way out of his Epic deal. He spoke on being robbed of proper marketing and wanted out. However, the label didn’t want to let him go, so he showed up to Epic every day with 40 people from his camp, making it “uncomfortable.” Eventually, they let him go, and he joined forces with Dame Dash and signed to Roc-A-Fella. This was a big move because the two had fallen out in the past, but they could mend it.
Later on, there was tension at Roc-A-Fella after Dame named Cam the president without Hov’s knowledge. Then Jay-Z deleted Cam’s verse “One For Peedi Crakk,” and Cam responded by taking off Hov’s verse in the “Oh Boy” remix. Things between Cam and Jay-Z are good now.
Cam clarified some rumors. In 2016, Karen Civil was a guest on the Tax Season podcast and claimed Cam got kicked out of a Def Jam meeting after not giving Jay-Z a parking spot. Cam said that’s cap and called Karen a clout chaser, but she’s cool otherwise.
Cam also said Boosie and Webbie were originally on “Suck It Or Not,” but Weezy’s verse made the official song. The Harlem rapper also told N.O.R.E Dipset was the first group to do an artist mixtape.
Later in the conversation, Cam said he’s on good terms with Jim Jones and Juelz Santana. He clarified Juelz’s 2020 “In My Life,” which was perceived as a Cameron diss, was a concept Juelz run by Cameron before his 2019 incarceration. Juelz wanted Cam to rap from his perspective about the Dipset fallout, but Cam felt it would confuse fans. Cam spoke on Mase dissing him on “Oracle” and said he was “proud.”
Cam is working on a Dipset document. He’s open to doing a Killa Season 2 if people put up the money for funding.
