Cam’ron is no doubt one of the most well-known rappers in the Hip Hop industry and is in the business since 1993. However, he has recently discussed his 2002 track “Welcome to New York City”, which featured Jay-Z. However, 20 years later, he doesn’t think Hov outshined him on it.

On Sunday, the Harlem dignitary appeared on the Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast, where he talked about Jigga “absolutely not” surpassing him on the Come Home with Me song. “Did he kill me on it? No way, absolutely not,” Cam’ron said.

According to Cam’ron, there was never any intention of the two really working on a song together. But JAY-Z nonetheless roughly composed his verse in around five minutes, Cam told co-host, Wallo.

“I didn’t know we was gonna do a record. We talked we vibed for 15, 20 minutes and I said, ‘Yo, let’s go do this record.’ He sat there and thought about it and then my name’s in his verse. I said, ‘This n-gga kinda different.’ We get to work quick — he did his shit in five minutes. It was amazing to see. As far as taking off on me, go listen to the lyrics. Nobody ever took off on me.”

Hov and the Dipset rapper have rarely worked together, examples are “Roc Army” from the Paid in Full soundtrack and R. Kelly’s “We Ride.” Juelz Santana and Just Blaze’s production are also featured on “Welcome to New York City,” along with some extra vocals from the beatmaker. Stay tuned to Thirsty for more updates.
