[video] Cam’Ron Catches a Case of Amnesia during Interview

All of sudden the Dipset cuddling comes to an abrupt end. This interview is a break from previous ones where Cam states what it would take to get him and his former team back together. This time around he throws all them negroes under the bus by refusing to acknowledge that he even knows them, which is such a far stretch of the imagination but ignoring your beef is sometimes way worst than committing energy to it.

As many artists know all too well these days, leaked tracks and albums online have caused a disparaging decrease in sales. With that in mind, Dipset capo Jim Jones is looking to combat these cyber leaks with a method of his own.

His second single, “Na Na Nana Na Na,” [click to listen] has been up for download since yesterday, and “Precious” and “Frienemies” will be available March 3 and March 17 respectively.

Coined the “Countdown to ‘Pray IV Reign’,” iTunes will allow purchasing users to choose “Complete My Album” when the album is officially released, without charging for tracks already bought.

Pray IV Reign will be released in stores and online March 24 through Columbia Records.

 Man it seems rappers are in danger. It is being reported by Allhiphop and the Daily News that Juelz Santana was nabbed near his home in Teaneck,NJ by police and a subsequent search of his Bentley revealed hollow point bullets and marijuana.
