Hip-Hop’s Longest-Running Feuds

Jay Z vs. Cam’ron (2002 -)

 In 2002, Roc-A-Fella artist Cam’ron became arguably the label’s biggest success since label founder Jay Z after Cam’s Come Home With Me went platinum. Tensions arose between Jay and Cam after Jay’s business partner Dame Dash supposedly named Cam’ron Vice President of Roc-A-Fella without consulting Jay Z first. It was a move that Jay Z did not agree with and Hov allegedly blocked Cam’ron from taking the position at the company. A few years later in 2006 after simmering tensions boiled over, Cam’ron released “You Gotta Love It” aimed at Jay Z where he alleged that Hov had blocked him from his position and made allusions that Jay was involved with a shooting targeting Cam’ron, a year prior. Later in the year, Jay would allegedly throw a few subliminal disses at Cam on his song “Dig A Hole.”

While in recent years, the feud has gone quiet it seems as if some bad blood remains between both parties. It was reported that just last week that Cam’ron was alleging that Jay Z had blocked Cam’ron and his Dipset crew’s music from being played at Hov’s popular 40/40 Club in New York City.
