In Jimmy’s perspective, there is no benefit or gain to coming to Cam’s defense after Ma$e’s “The Oracle” disses.
“I don’t get involved with that type, it’s not going to lead nowhere. Ma$e is a pastor, he’s a rapper, he’s a pastor. Cam is my brother. I know both of them personally. Cam is my man. I know the real stories and it’s not to get into. It’s not worth nothing. None of us is lit out here to be beefing with each other or doing no rap battles. It’s over. It was popping for a day and a half amongst the rap community because people get bored on the IG and things like that and now it’s over. I would jump into some bs like that for what? It ain’t worth nothing. … We about this Dipset movement. We about to put out some music. … Why now after we set the city on fire?” (Hot 97)
Last week, Cam’ron talked about having Ma$e blast him with the unexpected “The Oracle” diss song.
“It was out the blue, but I’m proud of him, he finally showed some guts after like 15 years. It took him 15 years, but I was really proud of him when I heard that,” Cam said in an interview. “The thing with me, I don’t really make up stuff when I’m talking about Mase. I just tell him what’s going on. I put a project out called The Program two weeks ago, and I told a story about something that happened in Harlem. So basically he was probably upset that I told the story, but I’m not going to stop telling any story, because it’s Mase or anybody else. My raps are not that much fiction, I rap about stuff that’s going on, so therefore I just told a story, came out the blue. But I’m proud of him, he showed some heart.” (Complex)
The same week, Mason Betha came forward to explain why he felt the need to drop his diss record.
“He said something that just pushed me over the edge, I’m not going to lie. When he said, ‘the bodily harm’ thing. Saying something about someone, I don’t take that serious. When you start saying you’re going to do bodily harm or you’re thinking about that, it’s my job as a man to make sure you don’t get to do that. So every other time when he was saying little stuff about me, I let it slide because you know, we grew up. But people don’t realize, we’ve been enemies way longer than we’ve been friends. So I knew him as an enemy more than as a friend. I knew him for like 8 years as a friend, I knew him for 21 years for being an enemy. So I don’t look at him as a friend.” (Hot 97)
Last month, a screenshot surfaced of the Harlem native denying making a Cam truce.
