24 hours after Mase set the rap world on fire with “The Oracle,” Cam’Ron returns the favor with his Heatmakerz-produced diss “Dinner Time.”

Cam is known for his disrespect and continues that tradition in the opening bars.

I’m all for the jokes, bundle up, get your coat
But, I only go for the throat, I’ma chimney, I work the smoke
You done opened up a door, I’m petty, ready for war
I ain’t got a sister, only sister I fucked was yours

There are moments on the track where you get flashes of Cam’s vintage flow. However, the subpar mixing robs the lyrics of some of their potency, even when Cam goes in on Mase’s spiritual flip-flopping (Collection plate money in his pocket/ He’s a klepto/ And to get a dollar dollar/ He was sucking Creflo).

So far, most are giving round one to Mase. Listen and see if you agree.

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…

Cam’Ron reviews his life through pictures in his new video for “U Wasn’t There.” The collage spans Cam’s childhood to his time in Children of the Corn, his Untertainment run, and of course, the rise of Dipset. A bunch of cool photos of Big L, Mase, Bloodshed and others will keep you engaged.

As they prepare for the “Pledge of Allegiance” reunion tour, Dipset unveils their second release “Do Something.” The title makes it clear the Dips are ready for war.

Here we go. Roughly 24 hours after Funkmaster Flex’s Shawn Carter rant, the Dipet Crew reverts back to their mid-2000s M.O. and drop a freestyle with direct shots at Jay Z.

The Dipset crew have reunited for another comeback attempt. This time, the Harlem crew made a lengthy appearance last night on Hot 97, where they dropped a new single (“Have My Money”) and a “freestyle” session. I use the term freestyle loosely considering Cam had no qualms about reciting his verse straight off the phone. Dipset gets a few extra points for their new single using that classic Ed O.G. beat.

Nas_Cam

Hip-Hop fans got a nice surprise yesterday evening with Cam’Ron posting a reconciliation picture with former adversary Nas on his Instagram. Fans will recall the two had bene at odds since 2002, when Nas went on Power 105 and referred to Cam’s breakout album Come Home With Me as “trash.” Cam and his Dipset crew would spend the next 2 years firing off a volley of mixtape disses while Nas’ camp responding via interviews, Bravehearts’ Nashawn and subliminals on God’s Son and Street Disciple.

According to Miss Info, the pair saw each other on a Delta flight and immediately began talking , this being their first face to face meeting since the war of words 12 years ago. The discussions went well and there were even discussions of doing music together. So let’s hear it — does a potential Nas and Cam/Dipset track wet your appetite in 2014?
