Dipset‘s Cam’ron and Jim Jones have addressed the recent release of their “Runaway” remix which name drops Kanye West.
Despite calling out Ye and referencing Jay-Z by his “Jigga” moniker, Cam said there are no harsh feelings toward the former Roc-A-Fella Records labelmates.
“I ain’t have nothing to say,” Cam told radio host Angie Martinez. “Only thing I’m gonna say is a lot of people talking about I dissed Jay. I didn’t diss Jay on the song. I didn’t diss Jay on that song at all. I didn’t say nothing about Jay. I haven’t diss Jay in years. I don’t have a relationship with Jay-Z or nothing but I’m from Harlem. I respect people getting money. Jay gets mad cake. I respect his hustle, his grind, so a lot of people saying I dissed Jay, I didn’t diss Jay…I ain’t got no problem with Kanye, man. I lied about something?” (“The Angie Martinez Show”)
Jones added by saying Dipset is not trying to spark a beef toward Yeezy.
“Shout-outs to Kanye man,” Jones added. “Don’t nobody take it wrong. We here, we just having fun. It’s hip-hop. Cam is probaby one of the best rappers that’s been in this game for the past 10 years. We’re having fun…He didn’t diss him on the record, [Cam] just pointed something out.” (“The Angie Martinez Show”)
Last week, radio host Funkmaster Flex asked for Dipset member Juelz Santana’s reaction to the record.
“To be honest, I really just heard the record like a fan, you know what I’m saying, like everybody else,” Santana told radio personality Funkmaster Flex Thursday (September 16) night. “I ain’t really know they did the record. Me, Cam and Jim have been speaking but they must have did that when they got together, just in the studio, you know what I mean, doing what they do. So I heard the record just like y’all. I was like, ‘Wow,’ it shouldn’t really surprise people especially as far as Cam. Cam always said things as far as how he felt about Jay-Z and Kanye. He’s never been the type of person that bites his tongue. Nah, I haven’t seen any of them in the past couple days. I actually spoke to Kanye about a month and a half ago. He was good, he was talking about getting me down to Hawaii to work on his album…” (Hot 97)
The track dropped last week, days after West released his “Runaway” song.
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)
