“Made In America” — directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Ron Howard — recounts Jay-Z’s rise to rap supremacy, as well as his preparations for the titular music festival he both curated and headlined.
“Juan, you know better than that”
Speaking to Rob Markman for MTV, Cam speaks on Jay-Z’s mention of him on “Pound Cake” and floats a theory that his former labelmate has formally banned any Dipset music from being played in any of the 40/40 clubs.
“It’s ridiculous. I got DJs who DJ in there, who are my people and you can’t play no Diplomat music in there. Will we irk you that much,” Cam says of the supposed ban in Hov’s string of 40/40 Club. “That’s the thing that make me be like, ‘Wow.’ Because I don’t care, I like it, because if I had $500,000 million nothing can make me mad. But just for the simple fact that we get under your skin that much good because we’re that fly, we’re that flashy, and we just that type of people to get you upset. But I don’t have any problem with him, I think it’s cool, but c’mon.”
Jay-Z kicked off his Magna Carter World Tour at the Phones 4u Arena in Manchester, UK last night performing “Pound Cake” for the first time. Hit the jump for an alternate view.
