Cam’ron Slams CNN Reporter For Repeatedly Asking About Diddy During Interview

Cam’ron recently responded angrily to a CNN reporter’s repeated questions about the recent allegations against Diddy. During an interview to promote his sports podcast, “It Is What It Is,” Cam’ron was asked about the 2016 hotel CCTV footage that showed Diddy assaulting his then-girlfriend Cassie Ventura. Cam’ron clarified that he wasn’t friends with Diddy, but when the reporter asked again, he seemed perplexed.

“Everything in the video is egregious, I’m against,”

“I don’t support all the charges alleged against him. I don’t support any of that trafficking of minors or domestic violence – I’m totally against it. So when I saw the video, I was kinda upset being that I know him.”

“What do you mean did I recognise him? I seen him and I thought it was disgusting, I didn’t do a zoom-in to see if it was really him or nothing, but he admitted it was him so yeah, it was him.”

Following the incident, the journalist asked the rapper about his thoughts on Diddy’s recent public apology for his “inexcusable” actions in the 2016 video.

“The apology ain’t for me, it’s for Cassie,”

“He ain’t do nothing for me. What I think about it don’t matter. You need to ask Cassie if she accepts the apology. I said what I said.”

Phillip revisited a video from Cam’ron and Ma$e’s podcast, in which Cam’ron inquired about Ma$e’s decision to sign with The Notorious B.I.G. instead of Diddy’s Bad Boy Records. In response, Ma$e provided an explanation.

“Being that I saw you as a good friend, I wanted you with somebody I knew. Instantly I knew Biggie would do right by you.”

Phillip inquired if Cam’ron could elaborate on the topics discussed in the clip, explicitly asking about the industry’s perceptions of how Diddy treated his artists. Following a promotion for his libido supplement drink, PinkHorsePower, Cam’ron responded, saying, “I don’t really know Puff [Diddy] like Ma$e knows Puff.”

Interestingly, Ma$e, a fellow Harlem star, was signed to Bad Boy Records from 1996 to 2010.

“I appreciate what Ma$e said and, of course, that’s my brother so if he felt that way, he felt that way. I can’t really tell you how Puff moves, Mase would know better than me. For me to tell you about how Diddy acts, I don’t know. I was never signed to him.”

Cam’ron promoted his podcast, and then Phillip asked him about the music industry and how influential individuals were “protecting” Combs. This prompted the rapper to react strongly.

“Who’s the talent agent for this joint? You think I be sitting around watching what Diddy do? I didn’t know this was a Diddy joint that y’all invited me to. Who booked me for this joint? Fuck they invite me on CNN for?”

Phillip mispronounced Diddy’s name, leading to numerous physical and sexual abuse cases. Ventura filed a lawsuit against him in November, accusing him of rapping, assaulting, and sex trafficking. A day later, a settlement was reached. The terms of the settlement were not disclosed to the public. Despite the resolution, the controversy surrounding Diddy’s behaviour sparked debate and outrage.

Ventura filed a petition against rapper Diddy Combs, alleging drugging, harassment, and rape by multimillionaire Aaron Hall in 1990 or 1991. In December, Diddy Combs refuted accusations against him, stating he would fight for his name, family, and truth. Producer Rodney Jones filed a lawsuit against Combs, alleging drugging, threats, forced sex, and hosting parties for underage girls and sex workers.
