Cam’ron and Ma$e respond to criticism of Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Euphoria’

Cam’ron and Ma$e have heard the fans’ complaints about their take on Kendrick Lamar’s “Euphoria,” and they’re finally addressing it.

During the final episode of the Come and talk 2 me podcast, which dropped on Thursday (May 2), the rappers-turned-podcasters told fans that their complaints are much ado about nothing.

“Do you realize that N-ggas are angry because of our opinions on the Drake-Kendrick Lamar feud?” Cam’ron said to his co-host at the 2:25 mark. “I’m like, ‘yo, bro. Why can’t we have our opinions?’ I do not understand that! I don’t really understand why we can’t have our opinions!”

He continued: “Second, this is what I wanted to say. And this is not to start a problem with anyone. People on the west coast: n-ggas on the east coast ain’t as big on the ‘coastal’ shit as y’all are on the coast shit.”

The Harlem-bred sports personalities shared their thoughts on the explosive circuit on their show Come and talk 2 me on Wednesday (May 1), with both men agreeing that the 6th God is winning the battle so far.

“Drake is definitely winning from an MC point of view,” Ma$e said, praising the Toronto native’s recent diss tracks “Push Ups” and “Taylor Made Freestyle.”

“It took a while to get Kendrick’s record and if you wait a while it must be out of this world. I think if Kendrick had dropped this record right after ‘(Push Ups) Drop and Give Me 50, it would have been crazy.’

Killa Cam added: “I think Drake is winning. ‘Euphoria’ didn’t really move me. I expect lyrics from Kendrick, you expect certain things. The song was quite long, it took too long to come out – pause. I’m not saying it’s bad.”

Murda interjected: “It was a good record (but) we didn’t wait a while for a good record (…) It’s like if you did ‘Curtis’ (Cam’ron’s 50 Cent diss track), it’s a certain thing that you should have in the file that Kendrick doesn’t have in his file.

“You gotta say something that makes n-ggas look at n-ggas differently. And when he did, “I don’t want to hear you say n-gga.” that was an angle we heard before.”

Cam then analyzed the entire battle between Kendrick and Drake (and others in Hip Hop) and claimed that the stakes aren’t as high as they were when he feuded with some of his rap peers in the ’90s and ’00s.

“I’m not saying this rap beef isn’t interesting and entertaining, but back when we still had rap disses — and not just me, I say in general — people had the potential to die or be seriously injured,” he said. “I just don’t feel that in these fights.

“I don’t promote (violence); I’m glad hopefully no one gets hurt. But it felt normal dangerous. This doesn’t feel like a dangerous atmosphere to me.”
