Cam’ron and Jay-Z had their back and forths over the course of their careers, but its been years since all of that. However, Cam caught up with Rob Markman at MTV for an interview. It all comes with good timing as Jay did mention Cam in a favorable way on Drake’s “Pound Cake” (ie. Cam made millions…). Cam’ron didn’t take it as a diss though, but did take a minute to voice his concerns with Jay still holding grudges. Much so in the form of Jay allegedly banning any music from Cam or Dipset to be played at any of the 40/40 Club locations (which Jay owns).
“I think he has more of an attitude with us than we have with him. We had our moment back and forth, but I’m kinda over it. Like if you go to the 40/40 Club you’re not allowed to play Diplomat music,” the Harlem rapper alleged when he spoke with MTV News on Wednesday.
Even when some viewed the original Jay lyric as a slight, Cam refuses to take the bait, but still he wonders why Hov is still bothered by Cam, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana and Freekey Zekey, who have made a number of rap favorites as the Diplomats.
“It’s ridiculous. I got DJs who DJ in there, who are my people and you can’t play no Diplomat music in there. Will we irk you that much,” Cam says of the supposed ban in Hov’s string of 40/40 Club. “That’s the thing that make me be like, ‘Wow.’ Because I don’t care, I like it, because if I had $500,000 million nothing can make me mad. But just for the simple fact that we get under your skin that much good because we’re that fly, we’re that flashy, and we just that type of people to get you upset. But I don’t have any problem with him, I think it’s cool, but c’mon.”
MTV reach out to the 40/40 Club and a club representative issued this statement: “There’s no rule set that determines what music can and cannot be played in the 40/40 Club. Our DJs understand what our crowd is looking to hear when they come to Jay Z’s club.”
