Cam'ron Explains His Jay Z Response, Called A Liar By Clothing Company
(AllHipHop News) Cam'ron recently revisited his old rivalry with Jay Z after Hov's "Pound Cake" claim of making Cam'ron a millionaire. Speaking with Karen Civil, he explained why he responded to Jay Z on his Ghetto Heaven Vol. 1 track "Come And Talk To Me":
In the song, Cam said Jay Z did not make him a millionaire and they made each other millions. Speaking with Karen Civil, Cam explains that he was not shocked by Jay Z's assertion but wished he offered my clarity:
I don’t think Jay was necessarily taking shots at me. I just stated the facts of the scenario. He said he made more millionaires than the lotto did, but I knew Jay when he didn’t have a million, when none of us had a million, when Dame and them were on the come-up. I respect what all of us have done because I know where we all come from. But the way he put his lyrics [together] and made it seem like he made niggas money or put them in the place where they was supposed to be… He could’ve worded it like he helped niggas make more millions, instead of saying you made niggas millionaires.
Cam'ron is selling socks with Dame Dash and collaborating with clothing staple Alife on T-Shirts so his fashion notoriety has been in somewhat of a demand according to the Harlem rappers. However, Cam dismissed any rumors that he was in affiliation with DOPE Apparel:
When I did these ALIFE shirts, a lot of people hollered at me to do capsule collections with them. This dude calls from DOPE like, ‘Yo, we’re putting out the capsule Cam clothes deal that we made in a couple weeks.’ I never signed off on anything with them. I didn’t cosign on the artwork or the designs. I’m not going to allow them to have had conversations with my manager a year and a half ago about doing something because their company is in trouble, and now they see that I’m doing good in fashion, they think they just gon’ throw this out there. I’m not cosigning that. I’ll put it on Instagram and everything that I’m not doing it.
DOPE Clothing did not take kindly to Cam'ron disassociating from their brand and released a picture of Cam'ron-signed contract:
