Cam’ron Returns For April Issue Of XXL…..February 13th, 2009
(Opera Voice) KIIIIILLLLLLLLLLLLLLLAAAAAAA! If I had a dollar for every time I ran through my “secret newsstand” over the past 2 weeks, my pocket’s would probably surpass the amount of Obama’s Stimulus Package (I promise you!).
Not to say Cam’s return isn’t the “Talk of the town” anymore, but with Miss Info’s two part interview over at OnSmash.Com and a recent radio interview, it’s almost like the story of his comeback is becoming redundant.
Regardless, it’s still a topic of discussion across the hip hop board. So far, Cam’s addressed issues pertaining to Jim Jones, 50 Cent, Dame Dash and Juelz Santana, all without hesitation. But in the April issue of XXL, Cam slides off into a couple different things the public has yet to find out.
Since a lot of the information in this interview has already been revealed, almost word for word, I’m going to post the content that wasn’t; the Juelz information. Not to long ago, Juelz revealed that Cam’s contractual obligations in regards to his career have hindered him from moving forward in the collaborations department. However, according to Cam, there’s a completely different story brewing under the surface….
Cam’ron on why Juelz wasn’t allowed to collaborate with other artists……..
“That’s totally false. What Juelz has to realize is this: Anytime he does something, Def Jam has to get paid. Me and Def Jam was partners, and me and Juelz was partners. If Juelz does a song with Sean Kingston, Def Jam calls and gets $20,000-whether Juelz knows it or not. If they our partners then we should get $20,000. But in these situations, Def Jam would get paid and we wouldn’t so I would say, ‘No we’re not clearing it”. Because how come they are getting the money and me and Juelz wouldn’t be getting the money? Def Jam was starting to get frustrated with Juelz because they wanted him to put an album out. They started to lose patience. He doesn’t know I told Def Jam, “Yo, no, let him do this, let him do that”. They didn’t want to let him do anything, because they want the they album. They figure, “How come he can feature on this and feature on that, but we can’t get our album?” It was plenty if times where they didn’t want to clear anything, and I told them, “No do this. This needs to be cleared”. But then it became a tug-a-war situation with certain projects, where they would be like, “Cam, we understand what you’re saying. But no, we can’t have this unless they pay us double or extra or yada yada yada.” There was plenty of times I fought for him to be featured on people’s songs. Def Jam didn’t want him to be featured on people’s songs. “
Well isn’t that an interesting tidbit of information? If this information is true, then where would that leave, A.) The relationship between Juelz and Def Jam and B.) The relationship between Cam and Juelz? Judging from Cam’s interview in this issue and his interview with Miss Info, money wasn’t the only issue that caused the two to separate.
Anyway, if you can find my “secret newsstand”, make sure you slide over there and pick up the issue, it’s a great read. Now pardon me, I have an XXL issue that I need to get lost in.
