Cam'ron recently spoke on Bill O'Reilly, recalling his infamous 2003 interview, and the Dipset leader revealed his interest in returning to the controversial show.
Killa dished out his thoughts on the Fox network host and why he would go back for a head-to-head session.
"If they ever invite me, I would love to come back," Cam said in an interview. "I get a lot of people on the street who still tell me, 'I loved you on Bill O'Reilly' but whenever he invites me, definitely, I'd go back especially now since I know what type of person he is, I didn't know who Bill O'Reilly was before I got there and that was my first time. I had never watched the show before. I never knew what type of person [he was], that was just me being me. But not that I know what I'm dealing with, I'll be even more prepared." (The Life Files)
Cam is known for sparking YouTube views for his humorous responses from a 2003 interview on "The O'Reilly Factor."
Cool, I just want to say I think that we got off to a bad start tonight, but I think everything that we said was very positive," Cam said in the program. "I think that what me and [Dame] Dash are doing is very, very, very positive for the youth. You just jumped on everything that we done bad, and there's nothing that we done bad. You took it based on one song of lyrics. Like I think what you need to do is get more in tune with your students. You know what I mean? If you need some of these rappers to come in, call the record company, call Rockefeller Records, call Diplomat Records, and ask us to come in and speak to your students. We do things like that.

O'Reilly is known for criticizing rap artists most recently including Jay-Z and Young Jeezy for their performance of "My President Is Black" during a pre-inauguration performance for Barack Obama.
"Now Jay-Z should know better," O'Reilly said. "I don't know much about Young Jeezy, it is possible he will appear on "The Factor" soon. "I don't give a flying bleep what these two guys think," co-host Dennis Miller added. "I thought it was a beautiful day yesterday. If they couldn't ratchet down the hate for a day, then that's their problem. (The O'Reilly Factor)
Despite backlash from Jeezy and others, O'Reilly's influence is reportedly responsible for Ludacris being dropped by Pepsi around 2002.
The key factor for Pepsi in deciding which pop stars are appropriate pop pitchmen and women is now, apparently, ''The O'Reilly Factor.'' A day after Fox News Channel host Bill O'Reilly blasted the soda bottler for using ads featuring Ludacris, Pepsi has yanked the ads, citing consumer complaints over the rapper's profane and violent lyrics.
