Cam'ron Reveals He Wrote Lil' Cease's Verse On "Crush On You"

Killa airs out details about one of his early ghostwriting exploits.

Dipset head honcho Cam'ron recently revealed that he was responsible for writing one of Lil' Cease's most well-known verses.

In an interview with Hot 97's DJ Cipha Sounds and Peter Rosenberg on their Juan Epstein podcast, Cam revealed that he wrote Cease's rhymes on Lil' Kim's 1996 track "Crush on You."

“What happened was, [Untertainment CEO Lance] Un [Rivera] gave Mase $30,000 to write five songs for Lil’ Cease at that time and Mase gave me $5,000 of the 30 to write one or two of the songs,” explained Killa. “I wrote the ‘Crush on You’ song and they ended up keeping it for Lil’ Kim album but it was really for Lil’ Cease. The original ‘Crush on You’ is all Lil’ Cease, Lil’ Kim isn’t even on the record.”

Unfortunately for Cam, he did not received any residuals from the track, which peaked at No. 2 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music charts in 1997.

    I think that this article is an unfortunate testament to how rappers develop their careers. So many of these cats ghostwrite for an artist, it is nearly impossible to crank out hit after hit after hit without some sort of consultation and collaboration with others. What sucks is that a young rapper undoubtedly finds it difficult to make their they take a little bit of money just to get the opportunity to meet with the right people who can get their names out there and get their music out. Cam found his way, whether you like him or not we can't deny that he has made an image for himself and he has made a lot of money reppin' the Dipset. It just sucks because cats like Wilie The Kid ghostwrote, tried to get recognition for it...but then no one sided with him. It sucks, but it's the nature of the game...

      I remember that verse. I thought he was saying he wrote Kim's verse that was added on. I didn't know he wrote the whole original song with just Cease.
