Camron on Aphilliates Radio with Dj Drama

"Strong Armed" via' NahRight

Drama: I was watching the prelude to I Use To Get In Ohio, [Laughs] who is the nigga playing your cousin?

Cam’ron: That’s my nigga Bang. He actually directed the full video of I Get It In Ohio & Cookin’ Up. A lot of people don’t know, he’s also a producer. He produced Jim’s first single Certified Gangstas, he did a couple joints on my album. Now he’s in that director mode. He’s really from Chicago.. I had to take like 15 takes [Prelude video], I couldn’t stop laughing. That’s my man Duane “Bang” Holmes: producer, director, etc.

Drama: I don’t know what we’re waiting on for the Cam’ron Gangsta Grillz?

Cam’ron: I was just about to say, I never got invited to do a Gangsta Grillz, we could do that tonight. The whole shit could get done tonight. I can’t wait.

Drama: Have you been watching people come up on internet?

Cam’ron: Soulja Boy’s like the biggest example… They had wanted me to be a part of Aunt Jackie cuz they were on Koch but I couldn’t.. that wasn’t my lane, but the best of luck to them. Koch Records was distributing them and they really signed them off their YouTube hits. “Oh these guys got 200,000 hits on YouTube.” So I’m sitting there thinking to myself, damn if you get 200,000 views on YouTube, you get a record deal. If I was home, I’d have people cheating all day to get me 200,000 to walk into somebody’s office. [Laughs.]

Drama: Speaking of the internet, one of the sites that’s come up heavily in the last year and a half is The Rick Ross/50 beef is very interesting. A lot of people say it’s entertaining. I’ve said it almost seems like 50 might of learned something from y’all beef because you brought such a comedy element to the game. And even 50 has been on record saying “I didn’t know what to do with that when Cam was coming like that.”

Cam’ron: I’m a different type of animal. I had 10 million downloads off Curtis.. At the end of the day, he did a smart move with Juelz & Jimmy.. Musically I can’t wait to deal with anybody. It’s not a problem. You gotta be funny and entertaining cuz at the end of the day it ain’t like him and Rick Ross are gonna see each other in the streets.. If you can clown somebody, clown ‘em. Cuz it makes them look stupid.. If you talented, funny, and can spit, you gonna win the battle 9 times outta 10.

Drama: The album, Crime Pays, May 5th.
