I was reading this interview Bleek did with HiphopDx and I couldn’t help but be amazed at how level headed and mature he sounds, especially when asked about Cam’ron and his anti-chancleta campaign against his father. He also had some choice words on my favorite subject: How the East Coast never fell off and doesn’t need to be brought back to anywhere.
On Cam’s dis track to Jay:
I feel that’s a coward move. Def Jam is on 50th . You live on 145th. You can drive 60 blocks and come see that man. You don’t have to make a record. If there’s a problem, do something. We work 9 to 5. Our cars are parked on the same block every single day. If there’s a problem, do something. Don’t talk about me and now I can’t see you. Where you at? That’s wack to me. You ain’t going to hear me making a record about nobody. If it’s a problem, I’m coming to see you. Straight up. Address that problem to me to my face like a real man. And I don’t have security, never did. I will e-mail anyone in the rap game my itinerary, only me and my homies. You never hear Memphis Bleek going off the limb talking about nobody. I don’t have no problem with nobody. I don’t think about other people that much. I’m happy when a person doing his thing, sells millions of records. I’m glad. Another successful African-American like myself coming through the same struggles I did. I feel like a sucker by hating on his situation. But hey, you open the door on us and you give us leeway to do whatever we feel to you.
I completely expected him to be like "F*ck that nigga, I’m in the studio right now working on a whole mixtape dissing him, shit is gonna be fire!" I guess he figures if Jay isn’t stressing it why should he. I probably wouldn’t be worrying about much either if I was "in the will somewhere."
