Since releasing Juelz Santana from his Diplomat Records contract last year, Cam’ron has been accused of taking advantage of his former protege. In this SOHH Exclusive Cam attempts to explain away the accusations.
Despite Julez Santana’s recent allegations, Cam’ron told SOHH that his business dealings with the rapper were legit.
“As far as I’m concerned I never did Juelz wrong. I made sure he seen any contract we signed. He didn’t do a deal ’til he was over 18. I can’t do you wrong if you’re an adult.
I don’t know exactly what he’s talking about. I wish he’d be more specific but, No in my opinion I didn’t do him wrong. I didn’t jerk him around. If he’d give me a topic or an idea of what he’s talking about maybe I could answer the question a little more clearly but he’s just saying I did him wrong. I don’t know what he’s talking about.
According to Juelz, the deal he inked with Cam’ron was unfair.
“It was a bad deal. He owned so much of my shit and everything, he just, practically, owned more than what I owned, and it got to a point where I just wanted to get the situation right. I didn’t want nothing back. And it’s like he wasn’t trying to get it right. He wasn’t trying to give me what I felt like I was owed.” (XXL mag)
Last week, Juelz accused Cam’ron of dancing around the issue in his recent interviews.
“At the end of the day, he never really answered the question about did you do Juelz dirty businessly,” Santana said. “He kinda stirred around it. He said something like, ‘what was Juelz doing before he met me?’ Everybody had somebody that gave em they shot. You see he’s trying to manipulate the situation ’cause Cam is smart at the end of the day.” (MTV)
Cam made headlines last summer for selling Santana’s contract to Def Jam Records.
Seems there is more changes happening for Harlem, NY, representatives, The Diplomats. According to a recent report, Cam’ron has sold Juelz Santana’s contract with them, to Def Jam Records for a cool $2 Million. Juelz was asked by Miss Info about his move to Def Jam and he responded, “Yeah, I’m free!! And ready to do me!! But its still Dip Set 4 life!! Its just going to be a new chapter!!” (Def Sounds)
