Watch Cam’Ron’s First Interview With MTV In 1998

Here is the first interview Cam'Ron ever did with MTV. 

Word hit the Internet last month that MTV is working with Genius to dig up a collection of unreleased interviews. First, an interview with Ol’ Dirty Bastard surfaced.  Now, they have revealed a vintage interview with Cam’ron from 1998.

The clip is from young Killa Cam’s first sit-down with MTV. The Dipset forefather talked about putting his mom on his album, his relationship with Mase and rapping for Biggie, among other things.

Peep some excerpts below:

On how he got started rapping with Mase:

“Well, I got started cause I grew up with Mase. Me and Mase is from the same neighborhood we used to rap together on the street. In this like music group we was called Children of the Corn, me and him my cousin’s name is bloodshed he passed away last year. We just used to rap on the street. And basically we used to play ball, ball was like a first priority. But I went away to school, and Mase got put on over at Bad Boy. I got into some problems out in school. I used to go to a junior college in Texas. And then when I came back, Mase was like: ‘start writing I’ll put you on.’"

On getting signed again with his mixtapes:

“I did a lot of mixtapes with DJ Clue that’s how I kind of got signed after Biggie passed away…I did the mixtape thing and that’s what really blew me up in New York City.”

On revealing his sensitive side on records:

“People reveal their sensitive side because you realize it’s a big world you’re not the only one going through these problems…like in my case I’ve revealed a lot of things that going on in my life…you just try and do things like that and hope people feel what you say…to know if I can touch you like that I did my job so I try and get sensitive ‘cause I’m not the only one going through the problems I went through.”

T.I. Bails 23 Nonviolent Offenders Out Of Jail For Easter

T.I. did a remarkable thing this Easter (April 21). In the true spirit of the holiday, T.I. bailed 23 nonviolent offenders out of the DeKalb County Jail in Georgia.

T.I., Love & Hip Hop's Scrapp Deleon, and the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia, Ga reportedly worked together to bail out seven women and 16 men who were locked up for first-time or nonviolent offenses. The deed was done as part of the church's "Bail Out" program.

"It's almost like finally meeting the good Samaritan – somebody who you don't know that you didn't see coming," senior Pastor Dr. Jamal Bryant said good deed. "They're appreciative to be able to press the refresh button."

The philanthropic work doesn't stop after the men and women are released, however. The "Bail Out" program also connects the newly-released citizens with a certified mentor for weekly check-ins. A portion of the donations received by the program will be used to establish college funds for former inmates with children.

According to Fox 5, New Birth Missionary launched the "Bail Out" program on Lent (Mar. 6). They pledged to raise $40,000 in order to bail inmates out of jail just in time for Easter Sunday. As soon as T.I. got involved, donations reportedly skyrocketed to $120,000.

We should take note of their courageous efforts.

Chris Brown Confirms Summer Tour With Nicki Minaj

Chris Brown and Nicki Minaj are hitting the road. The duo will team up for an upcoming U.S. tour set to kick off this summer, Brown confirmed via social media Friday (April 19) after Variety reported that the tour would begin in the fall.

A potential Sept. 13 concert at New Jersey’s Prudential Center was added to the venue's website and later deleted. The site listed Brown as the marquee act, while Minaj was a featured performer.

Besides going on tour together, Minaj makes an appearance on Brown’s newly released single “Wobble Up,” which also features G-Eazy. The track is the latest music collaboration from Brown and Minaj who have worked together a few times over the years.

News of the joint tour comes a day after it was reported that Minaj parted ways with her longtime management team. The “Gonja Burns” rapper was originally billed to hit the road with Future for the North American leg of her Queen tour but the jaunt was cancelled due to scheduling conflicts. The Queens native recently finished up her European tour with Juice WRLD as her special guest.

Last Sunday, Minaj took the stage as a surprise guest for week one of Ariana Grande’s headlining set at the 2019 Coachella Valley Music Festival. It’s unclear if she will hit the stage when Grande returns to perform for week two of Coachella on April 21.
