Dipset rapper Juelz Santana has responded to Cam’ron‘s recent claims that their separation was a result of Juelz’s addiction to syrup-sipping.
The Skull Gang leader confirmed his usage of Robitussin but said he never developed an addiction.
“For him to say he stopped messing with me because I was drinking syrup — that’s like Baby saying he doesn’t mess with [Lil] Wayne because he was drinking syrup,” Santana said in an interview. “He just wanted to say something and that was probably the only way he could say something and keep his character up. I was never addicted to syrup. I used to drink it on occasion. I don’t know where that came from. [His comments] were a shocker to me, like, ‘Damn, you would stoop low like that?’ With his stomach situation, he was doing Percocet. It’s not for me to say, ‘Because he was using Percocet, I stopped speaking to Cam.’…I still wish him the best. But that syrup comment — I didn’t understand where that came from.” (MTV)
Cam recently said Juelz’s alleged addiction broke the duo apart.
“Juelz started drinking syrup, Robitussin,” Cam’ron told hip-hop personality Miss Info. “He got hooked on it, addicted to it, you go to the studio he got, like, a hundred Hawaiian Punches already pre-mixed with the stuff in it. So I kinda stopped speaking to him like, we already smoked mad weed, we don’t need to be on Robitussin. I called his mother about it. I called his closest friends about it. They knew it, knew about it. They was like, ‘Yo Cam it’s not that bad’…I’m like yo, that’s like saying you just smoke a little bit of crack, it ain’t that much crack…So that’s kinda how I shot away from Juelz. It was even a point where Jim [Jones] called me like, ‘What’s going on with you and Juelz’…I said, he’s on drugs.” (Miss Info)
Killa 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)
Despite the recent claims, Juelz previously told SOHH about his gratitude towards Cam.
“I wish we could have made it work because it would have made it that much better,” he said. “I was a real humble dude when people thought I was getting too big for my britches I never was. I always let it be known, being a firm soldier on a team. It didn’t work out that way so they forced me to be a boss. I was always a boss in my own way, but as far as Diplomats everybody knew who the boss of that was, it was Cam. Everybody played their position. He had a lot of good people around him. Much love to Cam, I wish him all the best.” (SOHH)
