This past week, Jim Jones gave one of the realest interviews in recent hip-hop history, and even got emotional when reflecting on his less-than-perfect relationship with his fellow founding member of Dipset, Cam'Ron.
While many were moved by Jones' side of the story and unrelenting loyalty, Killa Cam himself was less than impressed, taking to Instagram to post a warning message that he'd be addressing his former brother's commentary, and will be doing so without shedding a single tear.
Due to Cam's travel schedule, he shared yesterday (Feb. 11) than he'd be taking to Instagram Live to discuss his point of view tonight at 9pm EST. While many wondered what exactly he'd have to say, especially considering he's had plenty of time to think up a response, it appears that Cam delivered, offering anything but a sugar-coated response.
Around 50,000 people tuned in to the three-hour broadcast, during which Killa Cam held absolutely nothing back. Here are a few things we learned from the epic monologue:
“Congrats to Jim and everyone at Roc Nation. I think Jim does deserve a fair chance. I hope he gets the shot he’s looking for,” Cam’ron said. “But a lot of stuff he was saying was based on emotion and wasn’t true because he’s an emotional guy. I really hope Jim is successful and I wish him the best of luck.”
"Jim never had no paperwork with Cam so how I rob him?”
Cam’ron admits he made a lot of jokes at Jim's expense when he started dating Chrissy, because Jim was showering Chrissy with expensive gifts just two weeks into dating her. “Jim just met Chrissy and he’s buying her bags and shoes the first two or three weeks he met her. So I’m like, ‘Yo you trickin, man? What is you doing? You buggin.’”
“I made these t-shirts and it said, ‘Tricky Ricky aka Jim Jones Is A Trick,'” Cam remembered. “At the time we had mad n*ggas in jail and I was sending them money and [Jim Jones] was not looking out for none of our n*ggas in jail. Back of the shirt had all our n*ggas in jail and I had called [Jim Jones] a trick. I wasn’t looking at it like that. I’m looking at it like that’s how we play. I wasn’t trying to disrespect him because I didn’t know their relationship was going to grow to be what it was.”
“He does things off emotion. Even when this is over, he’s gonna write some sh*t on the Instagram that’s emotional. He was crying on Love and Hip-Hop. That n*gga cries. I’m not dissing him. He didn’t just cry yesterday. He been crying because he’s emotional.”
The Love & Hip Hop star managed to call in and revealed that he experienced a similar emotional outburst from Jim...when their girlfriends were feuding, years ago. Apparently, Jim showed up on his couch and literally cried over the drama between Chrissy and Yandy.
"You sign to Roc Nation and a lot of people were like, ‘You a d**krider and d**ksucking.’ This was what Dipset fans were saying. The next day he go to Flex. Most of the time you go there to play a record. I think [Jim Jones] went to Flex to justify signing to Roc Nation. ‘I got a lot of backlash for signing to Roc Nation so let me make up this story to justify signing to Roc Nation.’ How I robbed him and how he gave me a place to stay and use to be my manager, my hypeman. Just say you signed to Roc nation. You don’t have to go in on a two-hour speech about me."
Cam said that Jim Jones signed Max B and Stack Bundles, but failed to launch their careers. “Them two alone, he could’ve ate. But Jim kept using them for his album instead of putting them out. Jim has never put an artist out. Max B may not be in jail if he put an album out. Stacks may have got out of Far Rockaway if he had an album out.”
