Juelz Santana Says Cam Won't Cooperate

According to an article

in today’s (Nov. 18) Washington Post, police are fed up with rapper Cam’ron

and his lack of cooperation in relation to an Oct. 22 shooting that left the

rapper with gunshot wounds.

Police said they have still

not been able to locate the rapper to question him, but are looking for ways

to force him to cooperate.

Officials noted that Cam’ron

is on five years probation for a gun conviction charge in New York and they

are considering subpoenaing the rapper to appear before a grand jury.

According to Dipset member

Juelz Santana, an artist on Diplomat Records/Def Jam, Cam - who is the CEO of

Diplomat Records – will not cooperate with authorities.

"Cam isn't going to

do it," Santana told the Washington Post. "It's not in our nature.

He isn't going to stand up and point out a guy in a witness line and say, 'That

is the dude who shot me.' We all came from the street."

The shooting happened early

in the morning of Oct. 22, after Cam’ron and 30 associates attempted to

enter H20 nightclub where Sean “Diddy” Combs was hosting the annual

Homecoming Blockfest.

Cam and crew were turned

away at the door due to dress code violations.

Cam left the club driving

his 2006 Lamborghini with his entourage following, some in a pink Range Rover.

The rapper – who was

wearing over $200,000 in jewelry - stopped at a red light shortly after leaving

the club, when a man exited a burgundy Ford Expedition and open fire on the

Lamborghini as well as the pink Range Rover.

A D.C. Protective Services

officer in a marked police car witnessed the brazen shooting, which left Cam

with a minor gunshot that struck both arms.

The gunmen fled as the Protective

Services officer gave chase. Eventually, the Expedition crashed into a parked


The men were stuck in the

SUV, but shot out the windows and fled.

A search of the Expedition

yielded fingerprints, a Nextel phone and shell casings. Police also recovered

a .45 caliber handgun that was dumped in an alley.

According to the Washington

Post, police tracked down the Expedition’s owner – who said he rented

the SUV to someone else.

Without the cooperation

of Cam’s cooperation, the case will likely stall – despite having

a potential suspect.

"We need the cooperation

of witnesses and victims," D.C. Police Chief Charles H. Ramsey told the

Washington Post. "I can't relate to that mentality. I can't comment on

that thought process. I don't think much of it. I don't see the logic at all."

Juelz said the entire incident

was rooted in jealousy over the group’s success.

Cam’ron is preparing

his upcoming album Killa Season, while Juelz’ song “There It Go!

(The Whistle Song)” is currently #12 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Rap


Juelz is also preparing

to release his own album, What the Game's Been Missing.

"There are all these

people who love us and respect our gangster," Santana said. "But there

are people who want to test our gangster. . . . Some people hate to see you

on top."
