Dipset's Cam'ron had a few choice words for former Roc-A-Fella Records comrade Kanye West and his televised 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy relief concert attire last night (December 12) in New York City.

Cam hopped onto his Twitter page and questioned Ye's on-stage fashion statement Wednesday night.

Killa didn't tred lightly last night during Kanye West's 12.12.12 concert performance. The Diplomat took a moment to call out Kanye West and his fashion via Twitter. "Pyrex and a skirt? Sh*t ain't adding up And if u co-sign this I'm blocking u!! Straight up. Ima have to save us." This isn't the first time Kanye West broke out the leather kilt or as most call it, a skirt. The G.O.O.D. Music general performed numerous times with this very look (minus the hoodie) during the very successful Watch The Throne tour. Is Ye' too far left field with his fashion look or is Cam'ron hating a little bit. (The Source)

Shortly after the photo went up and made some buzz, Killa took it down.

Then there is Cam'ron. Apparently, Cam was watching the show. When Ye was performing, he rocked a jersey that said "Pyrex" and a leather kilt. Cam posted a pic saying, "Pyrex and a skirt? Sh*t ain't adding up. And if you co-sign this, I'm blocking you!! Straight up. Ima have to save us." I'm not sure what Killa meant by save us, but he didn't save the picture, which was posted on Instagram. After hundreds of likes, it was deleted. (All Hip Hop Rumors)

Mr. West's kilt also reportedly sparked someone to create a Twitter account in its honor.

The look Wednesday night, however, elicited chatter and Tweets from fashion police all over including this less than flattering response from New York rapper, Cam'ron. According to FOX news, Kanye's Skirt now has a Twitter account and by Thursday morning had garnered 1,000 followers. This is too much. Crazy - although I must say his performance was pretty phenomenal. He performed a nice selection of his hits from "Jesus Walks" to "Gold Digger" The performance was filled with the artist's best work. (Philly)

After Cam took a shot at Ye on a 2010 "Runaway" freestyle, Kanye stepped up and downplayed it.

"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."
