G-Unit associate DJ Whoo Kid has followed in The Game's footsteps and released a Jay-Z diss video called "Camelgate," in which he pokes fun of the rapper.
The video is Whoo Kid's "response" to Jay's "Death of Autotune"-- in which he reportedly took some lyrics as a diss directed at him--with a rapping Jay-Z camel.
The "Camelgate" scandal began in June 2009, as Jay-Z called out various DJ's and artists on his diss track 'DOA (Death of Autotune),' and Shade 45's DJ Whoo Kid and DJ Mandog heard this: Stop your blood clot crying/The kid the dog everybody dying/No lyin, your n*ggas' jeans too tight/Your colors too bright, your voice too light/ -- Jay-Z 'D.O.A. (Death of Autotune)' Now, all the way from the sands of Morocco, DJ Whoo Kid responds. This is "Camelgate (Jockin Jay-Z)." (Radio Planet TV)
Whoo Kid also promoted his parody diss video via Twitter.
"DJ Whoo Kid vs Jay-Z! 'Camelgate (Jockin' Jay-Z)'," Whoo Kid wrote. "In case you missed it on your lunchbreak: CAMELGATE!" (DJ Whoo Kid's Twitter)
The Game, who also has taken offense to Jay's lyrics in "Death Of Auto-Tune (D.O.A.)" has also began attacking Jay and making Joe Camel references, which is meant to suggest that Jay-Z resembles a camel.
"R.E.D. Album coming soon," Game said at the end of his "I'm So Wavy" diss song. "I see you downloading my swag, camel face. Blueprint 3 gonna sell more cigarettes than it do records, n*gga. Now I know why the taxes went up on tobacco motherf*cker." ("I'm So Wavy")
Cam'ron, who was once signed to Roc-A-Fella Records, also dissed Jay on his "You Gotta Love It" 2006 record.
"Killa, let's go," he rapped. "Who could f*ck with me, no mammal/But we tote handles, at your open-toe sandals/And you look like Joe Camel/Off of Roc-A-Fella, right? No contract/We bust the flyest joint, they put us out the contract." ("You Gotta Love It")
