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.
