Cam’ron confesses he deleted a Jay-Z line from song for revenge

The rapper has spoken candidly about the enemy-type relationship he had with Jay in the ’00s.

Cam’ron is one of the most influential voices in rap music of the early 2000s. As a member of The Diplomats, the Harlem-born rapper achieved commercial success and won several RIAA certified projects. Due to qualms with Jay-Z, director of the Roc-A-Fella label, he eventually separated his Diplomat Records banner from the label in 2005 and signed a new contract. The rap legend recently met NORE and DJ EFN on Revolt’s latest episode. “Drink from the Fields” to disclose more details about the frenemy relationship he and Jay-Z had during the turn of the millennia, citing a specific incident where the two sabotaged each other in the studio.

During her appearance on the show, Killa Cam recalled a previously confirmed story of removing a verse the billionaire mogul recorded to appear on the remix of her hit “Oh Boy”. He further revealed, however, that the cut was a response to the New York rapper who did the exact same thing to him during an incident involving Peedi Crakk’s single “One for Peedi Crakk” a few months earlier.

“They’re in the studio,” Cam says of the studio session with Peedi. “He said he had this hot song because he wasn’t signed to State Property, I was fucking him. He had come to New York or something and I was going to sign him. But, Lady was like, ‘Fuck you, him from Philly,’ and all that. Looks like he is [with State Property], but it is not. “

He continued, “So he’s like, I ain’t signed with them niggas, Cam, so we did the song. So Peedi play the song for Jay-Z and whoever’s in the studio. He says whoever? ‘he’s in the studio playing it and my verse lights up and JAY says, “Stop. Erase that shit “and just erased my whole verse.”

Their relationship has since improved as he and fellow Dipset member Jim Jones took to the stage with Jay-Z in their hometown in 2019.
