Just Blaze Tells All: The Stories Behind His Classic Records (Part 2)

17. Cam'ron f/ Juelz Santana “Losing Weight Part 2” (2002)

Album: Come Home With Me
Label: Roc-A-Fella / Diplomat / Def Jam

Just Blaze: “'Losing Weight Part 2' wasn't done when Cam was at Roc-A-Fella. That was done when he was still at Sony. It was around the same time that I first met him and he met Ye and got the “H to the Izzo” beat, which ended up being an issue between them.

 
Diplomats had their movement, Roc-A-Fella had some new blood. I had some new inspiration. It was great, but as we all know, it went the route it went in the end.
 

“Cam wanted the 'Losing Weight Part 2' beat because it reminded him of the Intro on The Dynasty. I kind of did that on purpose. Musically I made it a follow up to the sound of The Dynasty Intro, and I guess Cam always liked that beat. He wanted one that felt just like it and I was like, 'Well, I happen to have one that feels just like it right here.'

“It was cool. At the time, it was all love. Everybody was happy. Diplomats had their movement, Roc-A-Fella had some new blood. I had some new inspiration. It was great for everybody, but as we all know, it went the route it went in the end.”
