Cam’ron Talks Mike Brown Tragedy, New York’s ‘Soft’ Reaction to Police Brutality + More in Montreality Interview [VIDEO]
Rapper Cam’ron is known to be the rapper who never bites his tongue on controversial subject matters. In his interview with Canadian website Montreality, the Dipset leader expresses his thoughts regarding the Michael Brown shooting and the chokehold death of Eric Garner.
“I think it’s messed up,” said Cam about the Mike Brown tragedy. However, when it comes to protesting unlawful actions by the police, Cam feels “New York is soft.” The Harlem rhymer cites the cases of Eric Garner and Sean Bell as examples of New Yorkers being apathetic about police brutality.
“It happens in New York a lot and we’re quick to sweep it under the rug. But we’re quick to jump on the Mike Brown bandwagon,” he explains. “You got n—-s getting killed by police daily and we don’t say s—.”
Elsewhere, Cam also recalls his infamous interviews with Bill O’Riley and Anderson Cooper on ’60 Minutes.’
Finally, Cam’ron offers these encouraging words for the youth: “Go to school and get your education and follow your dreams.”
