Cam’ron has been called a lot of things over the years, but “ungrateful” should not be one of them, especially since he’s just expressed his thanks to Gillie Da Kid and Wallo for providing the spark that ended his long-running beef with Ma$e.
On Thursday (November 9), the Dipset leader took to Instagram to share a post where he expressed his gratitude. It included a short excerpt of Cam talking to the Million Dollaz Worth of Game hosts on his and Ma$e’s own sports talk show, It Is What It Is.
“Thank you guys also for helping connect me and Ma$e, and putting this shit together for us,” Cam said in the clip. “To be honest with you, and we talked about this on Million Dollaz Worth of Game, we may not even still be speaking right now without you guys’ platform.”
He continued: “So we want to tell you guys thank you so much. And you see what it led to [It Is What It Is], because Harlem n-ggas are gonna start hustling once we cool again.”
Cam and Ma$e, who grew up and even played high school basketball together in Harlem before forming the rap crew Children of the Corn alongside Big L, Herb McGruff, and Bloodshed, began growing apart in 1999 when Ma$e left New York for Atlanta.
Ma$e returned to the rap game five years later with a new album called Welcome Back, which he promoted on Flunk Flex’s Hot 97 radio program. During the show, Cam and Jim Jones called in to interrogate Ma$e over his abrupt departure from Harlem. The trio argued live on Hot 97, with Cam calling him a “fraud.”
