I let too much pass and I was gonna continue to let it pass but when somebody don’t stop—I had to just spank him one time.
It was really the point when Cam’ron said he had to kill me. I let a lot of things slide, but when you start getting to the body harm aspect of it, I can’t let that slide. That’s really all it’s about. – Mase
Beefing with friends who know where the bodies are buried is always a bad idea. The latest example came with the expected scorched earth diss track from Mase, who went for Cam’Ron’s jugular on “The Oracle.”
Longtime fans know Cam and Mase have been at odds for nearly 20 years, starting with a professional falling out when Mase declined to appear in the video for their “House & Carriage” collaboration. Since then, Cam has had no issues dissing his former friend on wax, starting with “Take Em to Church” and last week’s mixtape track “It’s Killa.” Over Jay Z’s “Blueprint 2,” Mase unleashes four minutes of fury sans a look. The lines come effortlessly and alternate between career and personal jabs at Cam’s alleged shady character.
And everybody seen the footage I got
Every since 10 you was a thirsty nigga
I ain’t gone talk about the time you fucked your sister
In 2002 you lost 50 pounds, ulcers in your liver
And now you tryna sell niggas liquor, NIGGA
You always play the sucker part
Where was all that Rico shit when you left Jim in Rucker Park?
The full breakdown, provided by Mase himself, is provided via Rap Genius. What makes the diss so potent is that instead of a slow build, we get hard-hitting lines out the gate (Imagine 20 years with a bitter bitch and the same drama/Dame told you do this shit and you don’t see Dame karma?) and stays on the level until the final bars (You’ll always be my bitch you got my fucking name tatted on you).
IG Live stories and jokes won’t cut it this time. Cam has to come back with some serious bars. He’s on the clock…
