The Diplomats Talk History With Jay-Z, Deleting His "Oh Boy" Remix Verse

Cam'ron, Juelz Santana, and the rest of the crew shed a little light on the history behind their beef with Jay-Z.

The Diplomats recently took part in Red Bull Music Academy's "Five Out of Five" tour. The crew took part in an info session and discussed, among other things, their contentious history with Jay-Z.

"We walked into the studio, and Jay said, 'I got a surprise for y'all,'" explained Juelz Santana. "[At this point] we was wondering why he didn't want to jump on records that he could've jumped on already. So 'Oh Boy' is already out of this world, gettin' probably like ten thousand spins."

"So we walk up into the studio room, and we're like, 'What's the surprise?' and [Young] Guru pulls up 'Oh Boy,' with a Jay-Z verse. On top of the Jay-Z verse, he's dissing Nas!"

"Cam made [Guru] erase the the point where Cam told Guru, 'You better erase that, I don't ever want to hear that."

When Cam's time came to speak about Jay, the Harlem rapper pointed largely to Jay-Z's standoffish attitude as the reason for their noted friction. "That's been going on with me and him forever. My first album ever, he comes in to see the Sony studio, he comes in like, 'Yo, lemme talk to you for a minute?'" Cam continued, mimicking Jay. "'I wanted to tell you, I didn't know you was that nice.' ...I said, 'I appreciate it, maybe we can do something for my album.' He said, 'I'm not here to lobby for a spot on your album.'"

Watch the two-part interview below, courtsey of, in which Cam also talks bringing Mariah Carey to Harlem and touring with Destiny's Child.

      I don't know how pussy Cam is but I've hardly seen any rapper in the hood regular like em Dipset dudes. If they were that pussy but around that much and violated like you made it sound they would already be dead.

    Woaw, Jay must have a 10 miles long dick since half of the rap game is on it

  • jnr

    Why is it that when any rapper calls out Jay Z then his stans come out in force and defend him and yet he labels himself hip hop? Hip hop is about not being a pussy and avoiding confrontations with the excuses of he is way ahead of them etc... No wonder Jay Z is hip POP now!

      Funny how all the so called rappers making noise about how Jay did them wrong are the same cats that 1) are coming out with an album or 2) haven't made a good album in decades.

  • jack johnson

    So Cam'Ron didn't want Jay-Z dissing Nas on the song even though his group member Jim Jones had a beef with Nas? Could that have had something to do with their break up?

    Killa Cam is WAYYYYYYYYY better than JAYZ. Mad word play and he keeps it the same for the fans, where as JayZ changed his flow to try to sound like a Young Money cat.

  • thetruth shall set u free

    The reason Jay Z took beats from the pink monkey(Camron) is because he knew Camron would waste them spitting hot garbage as usual. At least when Jay took the tracks he made classic albums like the Blueprint. How many classic verses or albums does Camron have? Wait I will tell you zero. This monkey ass nigga Camron should just put a banana in his mouth and call it a day. Camron has no good music or movement to talk about so they ask him about someone who is still hot after all these years Jayz. Camron cant rap for shit he not even on gucci man's level. The only fans this monkey has are on medication.

  • Ny Tim

    This Jenny Jones and SuckDick Set need to go make some music and not keep snitching on shit from 2001. These Niggas alaways say no snitching but they dry snitching.Three blind Rats....

      @truthman, sorry but did you actually read what you wrote??? How old are you again? I beg to differ... If you are truly a hiphop fan then you will know Cam is NEVER broke and will never be broke. Secondly we all know Jay NEVER murked Nas in that battle, only his stans like you try to convince yourselves that he did. Cam was too wack and ugly hence why Jay didn't respond to him? Damn, i'm starting to believe you got real issues and very much in love with Jay, nope i mean "IN LOVE". Well, you tend to use lots of gay words in all your posts so i believe you must be gay, right? It will be wise for you to declare your whole heartedly love for Jay Z and be free than getting agitated on the internet using gay words to diss whoever doesn't like your "LOVER". You claim he is talking tough behind the internet but excuse me truthman, aint you doing the same thing, white boy??? Damn, chill and just buy,ooops i mean ask mummy for some money so you can buy a Jay Z doll and go to sleep with it.... #Justsaying#

    • @truth

      keep sitting on the toilet waiting for your pig hero to take a shit so you can wipe his ass with your mouth

    • truthman

      Queer Sutherland shut the fuck up. Camron is the wackest most retarded rapper ever right up there with soulja boy he is nowhere near HOVA's level thats why he wont respond because it is a waste of time. He is counting his stacks and fucking bad bitches while lame losers like you say shit that just is not true. He murked Nas little gay ass and mobb deep but camron was to wack and ugly for him to respond to. You are the true pussy who talks shit behind the inernet about folks who are wayy to great for you. Camron is a fake pussy who has wack rhymes and flowas and no good songs. Jayz has 3 classics, 12 number one albums(most of any solo artist of any kind of music) you do the math dicksucker sutherland and then go play in traffi the world wont miss a ugly worthless tool who ignores facts such as yourself

    • Queefer Sutherland

      No please, FUCK ME!

    • good postk

      yes fuck those pigs


    Cam'ron is cool but I bet I got a bigger dick than him. I have the biggest weiner


    Ya'll trip me out saying Jay-z don't respond to rappers he does it all the time....for expample this verse from Blue Print 3 I was gonna kill a couple rappers But they did it to themselves I was gon' do it with the flow But they did it with their sales I was gon' 9/11 'em, but they didn't need the help And they did a good job them boys is talented as hell Cuz not only did they brick they put a building up as well They ran a plane into that building and when that building fell Ran to the crash site with no masks and inhaled Toxins deep inside their lungs until both of them was filled Blew a cloud out like a L into a jar then took a smell Cuz they heard that second hand smoke kills Niggas thought they was ill found out they was...ILL And it's like you knew exactly how I wanted you to feel


    Alot of these artist are playing themselves like for real...I would'nt even except a interview if the journalist was going to ask me about Jay-z. Think about it....there have been about 4 artist this week that have had articles with them talking about Jay-z. Game, Lil the whole dipset crew.....And you haters say jay fell off....

    • @truth

      fuck your dumb pigs

      Now with that said...Have you seen a interview lately with Jay-z talking about any other rappers? But they all seem to be talking about him.....these niggaz gotta get a clue....its chess not checker mufucas

    • jnr

      pap, you are right about everything except 50 didn't write 1/2 of GAME's debut album, he wrote the HOOKS on those two singles, dont get it twisted. That don't amount to writing 1/2 his album!

    • pap

      chill not 50! 50 put everyone on, niggaz had songs, videos, albums, toured, but most importantly....MILLION$!

      I guess you were not around in the early 2000's ansd just recently got into rap bcuz cam and the whole dipset crew and their biggest album success came when they were on his level the only one that had his big break after leaving the roc was jim jones so shut up if you dont know what you talking about

  • t$dm

    Not only do y'all hate with a passion, but y'all show you have no idea whatsoever about a rapper's music, history, or even the music biz. All y'all do is repeat the same gossip. Where's the debate thru certain songs, albums, and mixtapes to prove your comment? Whenever someone states some good facts, y'all start name calling. I have to assume this behavior comes from teenagers who are bored and wanna have "fun" in the comments, when actually it's sad. Thank you for reading and I will expect to read adolescent replies.

    Jay Z is a sucker and can't run a real label without a partner. Roc Nation hasn't even sold over 3 million records in 4 year yet, when Roc a Fella sold like 40 in the same time. Jay Z is an incredible artist, but a mediocre label boss.

    • bbq's texas size pina colada with a extrA SHOT

      jay is grossing way more now than he ever did as ceo for rocafella so in my eyes the sales dont matter. you can sell 8 billy and be gettin no money from it or sell 1 milli and take the whole check home. to say jay is a bad business man shows ur an idiot. the man owns a basketball team and dame dash is getting sued and going bankrupt

  • mindrelated

    Dipset is so whack. Only reason they ever were hot was because of the Roc and Jay. No one was paying attention to them, especially when your leader is lame. Cam...I get computers puttin...the worst line ever said in Hip Hop.

Im not defending these artists who wanna bring up Jay name for every little thing. I just find it funny how he never responds, at some point in time a man has to say enough is enough. If Jay was as good as some you see he is he would have responded by now and lyrically destroyed all the cats who talk about him.

      He responded to Dipset specifically Camron....see Husltin remix.....He responded to Lil wayne...see "whatch what you say" TI vs TIP album. He responded to BEANI SIEGEL..."Already Home" on the blueprint 3 album. He responded to Jim jones, Game, and Dame Dash on "what you talking bout" on blue print 3. Jay-z responds to people all the time...He just refuses to say their name...he don't wanna give folks promotion...if Jay-z says your name...its become mega promotion. Just like when he responded to 50 cent..."I'm about a dollar who the fuck is 50 cent?". 50 cent said he was glad Jay=z said that line cause it blew him up and exposed him to a whole new audience.

    • malco

      @BOSS: Thats the smart move.Everbody knows the media blows things out of proportion. Its funny, we all know Jay is cocky, greedy(all bout the money), and not really accepted by all popular rappers, YET the dude has some of the greatest songs of the decade, can arguably go down as the GOAT, and a huge fan base. People get caught up so much on the business of Hip Hop to the point where the music really doesn't matter. Thats why hiphop is becoming straight shit because whoever is publicly banking the most is automatically the best. Bottomline, you cant compare anybody in the group to Jay-z and Its stupid to denounce rappers on your opinion of their personality. Modern Hip Hop= Jersey Shore

    • Boss

      Jay Z does respond to people, however, he doesn't agree to do interviews unless the people doing the interview, agree to not ask him certain questions about certain artist. He knows that his time on top is over, has been for about 3 years now.

    yo these dudes are losers. Do you guys realize everyone who comes at Jay with an exception to Wayne ain't shit in the game right now? All the washed up nigguhs talk abt Jay-Z. Jay is always in their mouths, while Jay don't even care abt hip hop anymore. He got a kid on the way and money continually being made. Jay is en route to becoming hip hops first billionaire while Cam is doing what? Who knows. And while Jim Jones is playing tough guy on Hip Hop wives. These nigguhs do this every year. Come with a come back attempt and just fall back into the sand. Then remember when they got at Kanye on some song last year? They just mad vinegary right now because they followed the wrong man. If they followed Jay instead of Dame, then they wouldve def made more money, had more marketing for their albums, and they woulda had a label with actual artist with real talent like G.O.O.D Music.
