Cam'ron Refutes Jay Z's "Pound Cake" Claims

Cam'ron responds to Jay Z's claims on "Pound Cake," where the rapper says he made Cam'ron a millionaire.

Cam'ron has responded to Jay Z's line on Drake's "Pound Cake," where the rapper says he made Cam'ron a millionaire. 

"She said Jay made you a millionaire and looked me in the eyes," Cam'ron raps on "Come and Talk To Me" off his recently released mixtape, Ghetto Heaven Vol. 1. "Said cake, cake, cake, got that from the pies / We made each other millions, that was my reply / But had a mill before I met him, baby, that ain't no lie." 

Cam'ron released two albums prior to signing with Jay Z's Roc-A-Fella Records. Released via Epic Records, Cam'ron's debut solo album, 1998's Confessions of Fire, was certified gold by the RIAA. Cam'ron's second album, S.D.E., was released in 2000. Given Cam'ron's likely income from album sales, merchandise, touring, endorsements and other revenue streams, it is probable that he generated at least $1 million before he signed with Jay Z's imprint. 

On the aforementioned "Pound Cake," Jay Z says he made several other people millionaires.  

"I done made more millionaires than the Lotto did," Jay Z raps on the song. "Dame [Dash] made millions / [Kareem] Biggs [Burke] made millions / [Kanye West] made millions, Just [Blaze] made millions / Lyor [Cohen] made millions / Cam made millions." 

Cam'ron joined Jay Z's Roc-A-Fella in 2001. Cam'ron was named Vice President of the imprint in 2002, the year he also released his third solo album, the platinum-selling Come Home With Me

After Jay Z and his Roc-A-Fella partners parted ways in 2004, Cam'ron made "You Got To Love It," a diss track aimed at Jay Z. On the song, Cam'ron chastised Jay Z's use of sandals, likened him to a camel and claimed Jay Z stole Roc-A-Fella Records, Roc-A-Wear clothing and Kanye West from Dame Dash. 

Cam'ron's "Come and Talk to Me" can be heard below. Cam's mixtape can be streamed on HipHopDX via Datpiff

    Ems Relapse sold 2 million, Recovery Sold 4.5 Million. Why?, Relapse was disappointing. Interscope had a version of Relapse that could of sold easily 4 million. Check out this site to hear it. www.eminemalbum2014.com

    Cam had liquor stores and all that poppin waaaay before him and Jay ever sat in the same room together

    "e forreal tho yo if you got 1.01 your not gonna consider youself a millionaire" Agreed. Liken it to someone who signs a sports contract and makes say 1.5 million their first season. That's alot of money, but in comparison to someone making $20 mill that season, it's chump change. Cam probably had the prospects lined up to make millions, but I doubt he had millions.

    "Confessions of fire Purple Haze SDE" Horse and Carriage was his only good song. The rest was wack garbage.

  • The Fuck

    Cam can't rap for shit. Tryna diss Jay nigga. He'd ruin Camron's WHOLE career. OOP. He did it all by himself. Cam is like Chief Keef, Lil B and Soulja Boy in one.

    • ^ Naw

      I admit Camron had SOME good tracks back in the day. His flow is stupid (bad)though. Purple Haze had some good tracks like "Down and Out" with Kanye, but it was not a classic bruh. Second, I think his "Come home with me" album is what did it for him with tracks like "Oh Boy" and "Hey Ma"... He aint shit now though.

      purple haze was a classic

    • clevelandchief

      How about Jay acting like he did biggs and dame a favor. Ungrateful motherfucka yall was partners. And last time I checked you raped them in the end.

  • Tree

    it's always good when one line can get people riled up...and listening to a Camron response is powerful! lol

  • DJ NITTI

    But Jay Z did say "I made more millionaires than lotto" before that so I guess I do see where Cam could feel a certain way about it.

  • DJ NITTI

    I don't get it. Jay Z said, "Cam made millions", he didn't say he made Camron a millionaire he said, "Cam made millions" which I'm sure he did make millions while he was on Rocafella. Is Camron denying that he made millions while on Rocafella?

  • Not A Donk

    I just want to make sure everyone knows that $1M literally means you're a millionaire, not $1M and one cent u donks. Jay was just talking on that song just like on every other song. He did play a role in making millions for CAM just as CAM did for him. There's nothing agressive about what he said he at all.

    He said he had a million before he met jay,Isnt that singular? ,Jay said he made him a millionaire which is having more than the million he had before they met, so Cam really isnt saying Jay is lying he just said they made each other millions.Basically saying he wasnt just eating off Jay,they ate off each other

      Be forreal tho yo if you got 1.01 your not gonna consider youself a millionaire be honest and he said Cam made millions not 1.01 lol

    • Scrilla Scram

      1.01 million is more than a million so anything a penny above 1M is millionaire status.

  • Gucci The Realest

    Who gives a fuck about Cam'Ron. Nigga ver had one classic album and is stock in weak albums and definitely not as street as Gucci.

    jay-z is such a political little pussy. always talks shit and hides his hands. type to say something and drive off. cam destroyed jay z on you gotta love it and alls jay z did was diss jim jones. jay z dissing beanie sigel waaay after the fact. little pot shot on a drake album. jigga is a pathetic old man when it comes to confrontation. here come the jay z super fans saying cam is a loser and jay is a boss, magna carta was ass and jay-z is a washed up puss. cam mixtape destroys magna carta. samsung made that album a success, because it failed on its own. jay plays the sales game but wants to be accepted by the hipster indy crowd. jay also got ate on welcome to ny city.

    • Marligold

      without the deal with samsung, MCHG just was certified platinum today... so how did it fail. how many rap albums been platinum the last 3 years. all i know is Cam anint had one nor has he had one since he was with roc-a-fella.

  • mrny718

    He said Cam made millions. Not he made him a millionaire. He made millions while on the Roc. That is all.

    • alonzo

      ya but he says "lyor made millions" and Lyor Cohen is Without a doubt a millionaire before Jay-Z ever got involved in his life. So I think for some people he made them millionaires, Kanye for example. Others he just made them millions on top of their millions (Lyor, Camron etc. etc.) and beanie a faggot. and jay is lame now, hasnt been dope for years. Pound Cake shoulda had 3 drizzy verses and it woulda been doper, jay just came through with his generic ass shit

    • alonzo

      *lyor cohen WAS a millionaire before Jay ever got involved...

      No the line before clearly says he made more millionaires then the lotto. Then he rattles off all the names. Cam and everyone else knows what Jay-Z meant.

    "Horse & Carriage" with Ma$e was his biggest record before Roc-a-fella and it was a pretty big hit to get him a million or 2.
