Cam’ron on Responding to Jay Z’s “Pound Cake” Verse: “I Just Named a Couple Facts”
Jay Z will forever be the master of throwing subtle jabs in his raps. It’s usually all in the spirit of hip-hop, and not really personal. He has name dropped everyone from Stephon Marbury to Worldwide West on records, but one man who just can’t let things of this nature slide is Killa Cam. When Hov mentioned making Cam’ron a millionaire on Drake’s “Pound Cake” record, Harlem’s own wasted little time in replying to the track. On a freestyle over Jodeci’s “Come and Talk Me,” he said he was simply getting the facts straight.
Jay Z first rapped: “I done made more millionaires than the Lotto did/Dame made millions//Biggs [Burke] made million/Kanye made millions, Just made millions/Lyor made millions/Cam made millions.”
Cam’s Response: “She said Jay made you a millionaire and looked me in the eyes/Said cake, cake, cake, got that from the pies / We made each other millions, that was my reply / But had a mill before I met him, baby, that ain’t no lie/See he named some Harlem cats and homie from the Chi/but my thing is he ain’t name nobody from the Stuy”
