Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West and Dipset's Cam'ron have officially squashed their feud by reconnecting on a new holiday-themed song called "Christmas In Harlem."
The record also features guest vocals from Pusha T, Jim Jones and Musiq Soulchild.
Kanye West wishes you G.O.O.D. tidings on the finished version of his seasonal tune "Christmas in Harlem." On the epic affair, Yeezy Claus buries the hatchet with Dipset's Cam'ron and Jim Jones, roping in G.O.O.D. Music's Pusha T, Big Sean, and CyHi the Prynce. Teyana Taylor and Musiq Soulchild add some R&B spice to the wintery track, harmonizing with one another about spending the holidays with family. (Rap-Up)
Yesterday, Yeezy confirmed the record was authentic on Twitter.
"Just got Dipset verses for Christmas in Harlem! Eeeeevrybody on it!!!! Cam, Vado, Jimmy, Pusha, Big Sean, Cyhi, Teyana Taylor & Musiq," he tweeted Wednesday (December 15). (Kanye West's Twitter)
Earlier this fall, Cam went after Ye on his "Runaway" freestyle and accused him of dissing former Roc-A-Fella co-founder Dame Dash.
Jim Jones and Cam'ron leaked a new song today (September 15) dissing Kanye West over the instrumental to "Runaway," a song Ye premiered this past Sunday at the MTV Video Music Awards. On the track Cam spits, "Kanye you a sucka n*gga/Dissed Dame [Dash], so my attitude is f*ck the n*gga/Stuck to Jigga. How you gon' live with that? Took the beat, now come get it back." (XXL Mag)
West later came forward and downplayed having any ill will toward Cam.
"You don't understand how much I love Dipset," West told radio personality Funkmaster Flex. "Dipset are so necessary. It's like when Jay-Z did 'Death of Auto-Tune.' That was a necessary moment. It's people who completely don't agree anything that I'm doing. But I agree with it so I'm gonna keep doing it. What makes that such a great hip-hop moment is that you have to be expressive. What do you feel? Don't think about the political, whether or not I can do a beat for you or what that would mean. Just express how you feel -- people are not gonna agree with everything I do. I look back and look at stuff I do and don't agree with it. If I made a diss record of myself, I would kill me. I would be extremely good at it...I use to spit my verses at Baseline [Studios], and just to be able to spit a verse in front of Cam was such a big deal to me and just for him to appreciate any of my lines coming from where I came from."
