While talking to Shade 45's Superstar Jay recently, Cam says that Knight took objection to him using Tupac's "Ambitionz Az A Ridah" instrumental for the track "Live My Life" off his album Come Home With Me. Suge allegedly confronted Cam one night after partying in Los Angeles.
"I'm like, 'What's up, bruh. How you doing?' [Suge's] like, 'I'm good but you owe me some money,'" the rapper recalls at the interview's 11-minute mark. "'Nah, you owe me some money. You used that Tupac beat on your album. That's my beat.'"
Cam'ron tried to explain to him that the beat's producer, Daz Dillinger, gave him permission to use the beat, but Suge wasn't budging.
"'Well Daz ain't got no say so. That's my beat and you owe me money,'" Cam'ron continued. "And I'm like, 'Aye yo, bruh I ain't giving you no bread what's popping?' and he's like, 'Well, I'll tell you right now. I fuck niggas up who don't give me my money.'"
After Cam showed that he wasn't backing down, Suge realized that the situation wasn't going to go as smoothly as his other transactions, and decided to drop the matter. "I wasn't intimated cause it was two in the morning outside a club in LA," he said. "It was more of a street situation. We with that. He didn't even trip after that, he just walked away."
Cam touched on this and other experiences he's had during his career on his latest album, Purple Haze 2.
"In the club in L.A., me and Tito poppin', yeah, we had a good night," Cam raps on the track "Fast Lane." "Walked up out of it, got approached by Suge Knight/He said I owed him money, started screwin'/I said, "No, I don't homie now tell me what we doin'?"/He said, "How you figure?" I said, "I said so"/Tito flicked his knife, he was ready to go to death row/I'm talkin' kamikaze, but we resolved it calmly/Everything I say is truth, I put that on my mommy."
