Diplomats front man Cam’ron was shot early this morning in a failed car jacking attempt.

Around 2:00a.m., the rapper left H2O, a Washington, D.C. night club. Shortly after, he was approached by an unconfirmed number of would be assailants, who demanded that Cam give up the blue Lamborghini he was driving in.

According to a rep for the emcee, he failed to cooperate and the men opened fire, striking him once in each arm. As of press time, he is resting and is expected to recover.

Cam usually travels with little to no extra security and has even rhymed about it on occasion (“Body guard for what?/Dog, I’d rather shoot”Down and Out).
