Cam'ron Says New Yorkers Are Soft When It Comes To Situations Like Mike Brown's Killing (VIDEO)


(AllHipHop News) Harlem rapper Cam’ron is the latest Hip Hop figure to weigh in on the killing of Michael Brown by Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson. While speaking with Montreality, Cam compares Brown’s death at the hands of a cop to other unarmed citizens who were killed by police in New York City.

Cam refers to Eric Garner who was choked to death by a New York cop in July, and he mentions Sean Bell who was shot at 50 times by NYPD cops in 2006. According to Cam’ron, NYC did not take a stand against those police killings the way the people in Ferguson have done.

Cam’ron said about the killing of Mike Brown:

I think it’s messed up. I think a lot of times what I think is, honestly, us New Yorkers when it comes to situations like that we kind of soft as a city. Don’t get me wrong our police are probably like police were in the 90’s in L.A…

Police are like that in New York today because everybody makes a big deal about Mike Brown, and that is a reason to make a big deal, a very big deal. But it was a guy [Garner] two weeks prior to Mike Brown who got choked out by the cops for just selling cigarettes. He got choked out on camera. Mike Brown, I don’t if there was a tape – this dude actually gets killed on camera by the police in a chokehold.

You got the guy Sean Bell four or five years ago gets shot nine times with no weapon. Police get off. They get desk jobs. Police from this guy the other day in New York, they sweep that under the rug. We don’t talk about it, it’s cool.

But the Mike Brown situation, everybody in St. Louis go crazy. They wild out, as they should. I’m not promoting no violence, or acting like they should be crazy, but something got to be done. They taking a stand as opposed to New York. We got two people who died recently from police. We don’t say nothing. Then it happened with Mike Brown, and everybody in New York is “Mike Brown, Mike Brown.”

Nothing taken away from the Mike Brown situation. That s**t was f**ked up and something should be done. I’m pissed [President] Barack [Obama] ain’t say nothing about it yet. But just in general it happens in New York a lot. We sweep it under the rug, but we quick to jump on the Mike Brown bandwagon. We got n***as getting killed by police daily, and we don’t say s**t. So I’m upset about the Mike Brown situation as well as the other situations that happened in New York.

    same dude that ran from beef is talking about how other people should knuckle up…bitch please.

  • BulldogCG

    Its about all black folks, not just NYC blacks, ol hatin’ ass. Even if he has a point, its ridiculous, something bigger can happen, but not when you got these selfish ass people trying to sound smart. He basically saying we shouldn’t worry about it, because it happens in NYC too. Dummy. Go down there with your crew and rep for NYC then.

    • Jay

      How is he hating? And where did he say New Yorkers shouldn’t care because it happens in NY too? He is saying New Yorkers should get riled up about the shit that happened in our city just like the people in Ferguson did. You need to learn how to read.

      • Agent provacatuers talk about what “WE” should be doing!
        Activist talk about what “I” am doing!
        Revolutionaries are to busy “DOING” to talk.

      • El Dogga

        And a bystander “Types” about what OTHERS should do.

      • ** Adds that to the phrase.

      • BulldogCG

        Because he just grandstanding promoting himself. He could care less about what is going on, or he would have been said something. He can say “not to take from the mike brown situation” but that is all he is doing. He should be banding people together, instead he is self promoting and separating the issue between states, he is an idiot. I read fine, I also read between the lines. He should be using his position to take action, not cry about NYC. It aint no one’s fault in Ferguson they bucking and in NYC they didn’t.

      • BulldogCG

        He could just say, “NYC lets stand up with Ferguson for Sean Bell and Garner” by starting our own protest, or lets join em in Ferguson. But you aint here that though.

    I agree with Cam as far as the Eric Garner situation is concerned. Garner has been practically forgotten since all this mess in Missouri has started and it’s truly unfortunate how there wasn’t more protests over his murder. As that investigation moves along I’m sure New Yorkers will be paying close attention to how that turns out. Enough is enough already with police executions no matter where it happens.

  • ShaStud

    Real Talk!!

  • Slaughtr

    I don’t think Cam is even trying to be a revolutionary just stating the facts for most black folks who have to deal with racism because of the carbon in our skin. The statement was true niggaz have died over air jordans and nobody protested. Instead of being angry and emotional folks of color need to be strategic but most of us are to far into American culture to be the fck awake and that’s really the travesty. Mike brown basically shoplifted and was murdered but maybe young out of control brothers will see that karma can kill you so the decisions you make you have retract from dumb shyt.although his killing wasn’t justified at all but fckn up our hoods only hurts us in the long run. All fake thuggery shyt needs to seckle and everywhere there is the slums and hood tragedies. If one wants to be angry take it to the folks who making you angry and keep the bullshyt out the hood, stand the fck up for something strategically…..don’t hand pick what you mad about.

    I guess he didn’t hear about the riots in Washington Heights during the early 90s, or about the people who were in the front lines for Diallo, Sean Bell, Trayvon Martin etc. NYC is a military state, its not easy to fight the police especially if you go at them in an aggressive manner, if so many more innocent lives will be lost, but not to say thats not whats needed. The sad thing is that he has the power to speak to the ppl who are oppressed who don’t know who the enemy is. The police are hired to be modern day overseers, the plan of action should be to educate then attack..

  • NYPD is a fcukin Army… thats why you dont do that shyt…Cam fcukin know better…ask the Occupy Wall Street people……

  • Dan_Tebasco

    Cam’s killed a million black ppl on his lyrics and had that whole stop snitch movement going tho so I don’t think he’s the best one to speak on the issue

  • Ipullcards

    Worddddd! Born here raised here and live here! Blacks are kept in control by the Jews! Hand & Spoon that stirs the pot is always a Jew here in nyc. This sh1ts been happening since the early 90’s in nyc when Gulliani’s guedo arse put a green light on urban blacks by using extreme excessive force! New Yorkers, are corny. They figure since the can shop on 5th ave that there aren’t any real issues anymore to fight about! The most these uppity niggaz will argue over is funding for schools, which I commend but that’s about it. Pac was right! Everywhere else riot but us silly New Yorkers rally?? Haven’t even seen one of those in a minute but cams right as well NEW YORK CITY IS SOFT! See what money and police brutality does? Let a drunk Hasidic Jew get shot or beat up at the least by NYPD! Sh1ttt we’d be in Geneva at a convention addressing this issue. Smh fuc America and fuc weak minded blk ppl. AND IM BLACK! Go buy a 400 belt but won’t march for a dude that was killed that looks justs like you. Smh
