The Harlem rapper recounted some of the tensions of his Roc-A-Fella days.
Cam’ron recently caught up with NORE for a three hour chat on Drink champions. Cam shared various stories about his career and detailed some of the tensions he had with JAY-Z when he signed with Roc-A-Fella in the early 2000s. As well as confirming the story of when he deleted Jay-Z’s verse from “Oh Boy (Remix)”, Cam explained that Jay did the same to her on the song “One for Peedi Crakk”.
Cam explained that he was in the studio working with Peedi Crakk, who he wanted to sign with The Diplomats. While most people thought Peedi was signed at State Property and Dame Dash warned Cam not to sign Peedi because he was from Philadelphia, Peedi told Cam he wasn’t signed, so they worked together on a song which became “One for Peedi Crakk”.
“So Peedi is playing the song for JAY-Z and whoever is in the studio,” Cam’ron said. “He says he’s in the studio playing it and my verse comes in and Jay says, ‘Stop that. Erase that shit and erase my whole verse. “
Later in the interview, Cam added that when Beanie Sigel heard the song with Cam’ron on it, Beanie broke the CD and threw it in the trash.
While Drink champions, Cam actually asked the hosts to call Peedi Crakk to confirm the story, which he did. Peedi Crakk has also told a similar story to DJ Vlad before.
Despite the bad blood, Cam’ron confirmed that everything was fine with him and Jay now and that was in the past.
Elsewhere in the interview, he explained how Webbie and Boosie Badazz were originally featured on his song “Suck It Or Not” (instead of Lil Wayne), how Dipset created the “artists first mixtape” and was trying to recover his masters.
