Last year, at the height of his feud with Jim Jones, Cam'ron said he no longer had issues with Jay-Z. For a short while, both rappers waved the Roc-A-Fella flag. During this time, Cam'ron went platinum for the first and last time. But, when Cam attempted to become the head of the Roc, tempers flared.
The result ended with Dame Dash and half of Roc-A-Fella leaving and Jay-Z and the other half staying. While Dash was quiet, Cam and his crew was very loud. They continually dissed the man who made them known. But, in a few years, Cam'ron's crew suffered an identical split.
During the split, Cam'ron said he understood how Jay-Z felt and he respects his hustle. Cam said he was trying to become more like Jay-Z and was open to working with him. Around this time, his former artist, Juelz Santana, was trying to reunite the old crew. Having tried to mend fences earlier in the year, Cam'ron vehemently denied a reunion and told the world Juelz was on drugs.
Following a public apology, Cam'ron reunited with his old crew. Back together for a few months, new music is coming from the camp and their fans are pleased. Not only is new music coming, but old issues have been reborn. With 50 Cent no longer trying to divide and conquer, the crew has refocused their energy on trying to tear Jay-Z down. Not even back together for a year, Cam'ron and Jim Jones have come together for another diss record aimed at Jay-Z.
The record also takes aim at Kanye West, but with both rappers being nonconfrontational, there is not too much expected out of the diss.
