Cam’ron Explains His Response to Jay Z’s ‘Pound Cake’
Since the album's release late last month, 'Pound Cake' has become one of the most talked-about records on 'Nothing Was the Same,' not simply for the lyrical back-and-forth between Drake and Jay Z, but thanks to Hov claiming he "done made more millionaires than the lotto did," his former Roc-A-Fella artist Cam'ron included.
Killa Cam took exception to Jay's assertion on his remix of Jodeci's 'Come and Talk to Me,' which appears on his new 'Ghetto Heaven Vol. 1' mixtape that dropped earlier this week, by rapping, "We made each other millions, that was my reply/ But had a mill before I met him, baby, that ain’t no lie/ See he named some Harlem cats and homie from the Chi/ But my thing: he ain’t name nobody from the Stuy."
In a recent interview with Miss Info, the Harlem rapper elaborated on his response to Jay Z's lyrics. Pointing out that he already made a milli before the two met, Cam explained that his verse was more about "straightening out what [Jay Z] said" and assured "it wasn't no diss."
To me, I didn't really take no shots at Jay, I just named a couple facts. I didn't have any beef with Jay. But the way he put his rhyme, he said, 'I made more millionaires than the Lotto did.' Like, Lyor [Cohen] didn't have millions already? The way I worded, I meant to say, 'had millions before we did business together.' Because when I met Jay, he didn't have a million dollars either.
