After years of denying an apparent mutual disdain for each other, Cam’ron and Jay-Z appear on the brink of a full-on battle, and MTV News has exclusively obtained a listen to the opening salvo: a Cam dis track against Hov called “You Got It.”
The seven-minute cut starts out with Cam outlining five reasons for his attack on Jay, including accusations that the Def Jam president stole the Roc-A-Fella empire and Kanye West from ex-partner Dame Dash as well as the Rocawear clothing line.
Further into the track, Cam spits, “You ain’t the only one with big wallets/ Got it/ My sh–’s brolick/ But ya publishing should go to Miss Wallace/ … Down at Jeezy’s video/ I shoulda kissed you on the cheek/ You’s a pretty ho’/ I left the label right/ Lotta cats wonder how/ Every time I dis that label I get fined a hundred thou.”
In the upcoming March issue of XXL magazine, which features Cam’ron on the cover, the Harlem native sheds light on where things began to fall apart with Jay-Z. “The real problems began when Jay went away and Dame was talking about making me president. When Jay came back, he had an attitude,” Cam told the publication. “He said to [Beanie Sigel] something to the effect that he didn’t feel comfortable with what Dame was trying to do.”
Cam’ron also takes time on “You Got It” to address Jay’s girlfriend, Beyoncé. “Beyoncé, fiancee?/ Check my second LP/ I might bring her back/ That’s your girl, that’s your world/ Had the thing f—ing singing ’bout slinging crack!” The clip ends with Cam playing his 2000 collaboration with Beyoncé on the song “Do It Again.”
It’s not yet clear whether the dis record will appear on Cam’s upcoming Killa Season album.
A spokesperson for Jay-Z could not be reached for comment.
