Both Cam’ron and Jim Jones have had public and lyrical disputes with Jay-Z before. Now, The Diplomats, a group once signed to Roc-A-Fella Records, take out their frustrations on former label-mate Kanye West. “Kanye, you a sucka nigga / Dissed Dame, so my attitude, fuck a nigga / Sucka, Jigga / How you gon’ live with that? / Took ya beat, now come get it back,” Cam’ron rhymes on a new Diplomats song called “Toast” recorded over Kanye West’s “Runaway” instrumental.
The original song premiered on Sunday night as part of the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, featuring Jim Jones’ former Sony Records label-mate, Pusha T.
Kanye West has produced on The Diplomats’ 2003 debut group album, Diplomatic Immunity. Subsequently, West worked with Cam’ron on Come Home With Me and Purple Haze. West also recruited the Diplomats’ CEO to appear on his Late Registration album in 2005.
