Former Roc-A-Familia artist Tru Life recently killed rumors of still holding a grudge against Dipset‘s Cam’ron and Jim Jones and claimed he is currently “beef-free.”
Tru recently looked past the beef and said his main focus was on his career.
“I ain’t got beef with nobody, I ain’t thinkin’ about nobody,” Tru explained. “So you n*ggas can stop asking me about Cam and Jim. Man, I don’t give a f*ck about nobody, I’ll tell you like this man, I’m from ‘Swagaria,’ I’m ‘Swagarian,” I’m on my fly sh*t man. Gucci up all the time…I ain’t worried about nobody else doing or what they’re talkin’ about. A n*gga got beef with me, well hey, when you see me then pop off. It is what it is…I ain’t got beef with nobody, but if a n*gga want beef then hey, we gonna handle our business when we see each other. Other than that, I ain’t got no beef with nobody. Like I said, shout-out to Cam’ron, shout-out to Jim Jones, shout-out to Dipset, I don’t give a f*ck about none of that.” (The Big Picture)
The New York-bred emcee made headlines in April 2007 for squaring off against Cam and Jones which led to a physical altercation at a Manhattan venue.
“What happened last night was Cam was standing in front of Club Stereo and Tru Life confronted him about what’s been going on back and forth on the mixtapes and they got into a physical confrontation,” radio personality Ed Lover previously told SOHH. “Pretty much Tru Life hit Cam, cops broke it up and everyone dispersed…As an OG in this business, I have a lot of love for both camps and I’m trying to mediate this because it’s starting to get to a point where it’s getting out of hand now.” (SOHH)
He recently discussed why he wanted to leave Jay-Z’s former label at the height of his career.
“We took a break for a year and a half, my head was cluttered with all the drama,” Tru said in an interview. “Some of the obvioius, drama with Dipset and everybody else and Jay was leaving Def Jam…I found out early so I asked Jay to get me off Def Jam and he did it quietly while he was at Def Jam…I never got dropped, I’m Roc-A-Fella ’til the day I die…Jay got me off Def Jam, I didn’t wanna be there without him either…I knew ahead of time before people so I decide I wanted to leave, Jay pushed my paperwork through, they did it quietly. Def Jam didn’t even know I was off of Def Jam.” (Rock Me TV)
Tru previously stressed his interest in being on the label due to his relationship with Jay.
“I was Roc-A-Fella all day first off, let’s get that clear,” he said in an interview. “I signed to Roc La Familia but I was always Roc-A-Fella. I was just Latin, but when that folded it was easy, they just moved me over to Roc-A-Fella. I’m a smart business man so when I found out Jay-Z was gonna leave – cause I got the heads up, cause that’s my big homie, I didn’t wanna stay there either at Def Jam.” (XXL Mag)
