Dipset's Cam'ron may want to think twice about the words he spits on records as retired boxing champion Bernard Hopkins has reportedly responded to a fight challenge off Killa's new "Humphrey."
According to reports, Hopkins responded to Cam's challenge via Twitter but eventually erased the post.
Yes. That's B-Hop, as in Bernard Hopkins. As in the former World Middleweight Boxing Champion. Cam'ron tells me he might actually get in the boxing ring and fight Hopkins sometime this year. For pay-per-view. Obviously. Is Cam intimidated by Philly's former champ Hopkins? Well, the boxer is still in fighting form but he is 49 years old now and, as Cam puts it, hasn't knocked anyone out since '05. Oh, by the way... "Humphrey" is Bernard Hopkins' middle name. UPDATE: Bernard Hopkins accepts Cam's request, then shortly deleted the tweet. "I'm hearing @HOT97 @QDEEZYDOTCOM @CAM_CRIMEPAYS made a song about fighting me? I accept the fight!!" (Miss Info TV)
Cam took note of Hopkin's erased tweet and called him out on it.
"Ayo @therealbhop why u erase ya tweet?? Don't be pump faking!! Stay strong!! ????and spell my name right!!," Cam wrote via Instagram January 30. (Cam'ron's Instagram)
On Cam's "Humphrey" A-Trak collaboration, he singles out the one-time boxing champion.
"Dame said I'm bout it cuz I wanna fight B-Hop," Cam raps. "I said I'll f*ck him up after 2 months of detox./True. Besides that, 8 mill from Reebok,/I take him to the bar, Pa, that's 33 shots..." ("Humphrey")
Coincidentally, West Coast rapper Game has revealed an interest in boxing notorious ex-neighborhood watch worker George Zimmerman this week.
The Game will throw his hat in the ring to fight George Zimmerman in the upcoming celebrity boxing match, and he tells TMZ, "I will beat the f**k out of him." Zimmerman has agreed to the March 1 celebrity boxing match ... the promoter hasn't selected his opponent, but is taking offers at [email protected] Game says, "I would not be boxing for me. I'd be boxing for the legacy of Trayvon Martin and for his family." (TMZ)
While details surrounding Cam and A-Trak's upcoming Federal Reserve EP remain slim, the new record premiered online earlier this week.
Last week, Cam'ron and A-Trak set off a wave of excitement in the music world when they announced they were releasing a new joint EP called Federal Reserve with appearances from fellow Dipset members Jim Jones and Juelz Santana. Now they've offered the first glimpse of what that project might look like, sharing the art, above, and the first single, "Humphrey." It features additional production from Fool's Gold artist and frequent Action Bronson collaborator Party Supplies. (Complex)
