The unsettled beef between Mase and Cam’ron erupted over Thanksgiving Weekend, when a diss track surfaced.
A day after Thanksgiving, Mase dropped a four-minute track called “The Oracle”, in which he goes in on Cam through its entirety… and with some vicious lines.
Below are just some of the lines:
“Ever since 10 you was a thirst n*gga / And I ain’t gone talk about the time you f*ck your sister”
“You always play the sucker part / Where was all that Rico sh*t when you left Jim in Rucker Park?”
“I’m the pretty n*gga, wrist litty, sunwear / Diplomat only meaning that you ain’t from here / You had a run here but y’all n*ggas is done here / All these pretty women and y’all n*ggas bringing guns here / You way pass the gun line/Every time you talk of me you sound like one time”
“I know you need money I get it / I know your digital sells I know about your digits I know Sony Red don’t want to see your shit distribute / I know it’s crickets so f*ck it use my name so they can click it / I made you, I raised you, why would I play you/When you dealing with this power n*gga Flex can’t save you”
“Now you can tell Dave East, ASAP Mob whatever you want / The whole hood know I’m the origin”
“Any n*gga ever got diplomatic immunity was n*ggas who ratted/Or wanna snitch on their community”
Why did Mase diss Cam’ron? Well, they haven’t gotten along in years. And, if you follow Killa Cam on Instagram, he aired out his former friend on Instagram Live back in March over him becoming a pastor.
“See that’s what Mase did. Mase went real wild. ‘You know what? I’m gonna just start saying I’m in church.’ Mase took it too far though — started preaching and all that sh*t. I see what he was doing with that sh*t,” Cam said. “He’s like, ‘You know what? N*ggas ain’t gonna motherf*cking harass me if I’m in church. That’s what Mase did. He said, ‘Yo, they can’t beef with me, they can’t ask me for nothing. I’m gonna throw on the Rev. Run collar and get the f*ck out of here. F*ck that.”
“Can’t even get mad at Mase. You know why… Let me tell you something. I used to be mad at Mase because I was younger than Mase. But, I know n*ggas 28, 29, 30 that can’t handle having $10 million,” he continued. “That n*gga Mase was 22 years old with $10 million, my n*gga. He went triple-platinum when he was 21 years old, my n*gga, that’s a lot to handle.”
“Mase wasn’t coming outside — that sh*t just got a little aggressive. You go triple platinum, sh*t gonna get aggressive. N*gga said, ‘F*ck it man, you know what? It’s a lot of violence going on around me. I’m gonna take these chips I got and I’m going to church.’ And I used to be mad at him about it, but hey, I see where he’s coming from. I wouldn’t go that far where he went, but I see the play. I see the play, I see what he was doing.”
Mase and Cam’ron both grew up in Harlem and collaborated on Cam’s “Horse & Carriage”, off 1998’s Confessions of Fire. They were also in a group together called Children of the Corn with Big L, Herb McGruff, and Derek “Bloodshed” Armstead.
