Cam’ron posted the above picture with Nas on his Instagram with the caption, “#QB #HARLEM #UwasntThere,” proving their beef – stemming from the early 2000s – is over.
In case you forgot, Nas had words for Killa Cam during his other infamous beef with Jay Z. When Hot 97 allegedly would not let Nas show a mock lynching of Hov for his 2002 performance at their annual Summer Jam concert, he took to their rival, Power 105.1, to trash the station for their control over hip-hop and the rappers who he saw as submitting to it, such as Cam. This started a string of diss tracks and an apparent beef between the two.
Years later, of course Hov and Nas have squashed their problems, and we’re ecstatic to see that the Nas/Cam’ron beef is also over. How did it happen? Miss Info got the exclusive tip:
“I had to find out more about this impromptu meeting of two rap legends…so it turns out, Cam’ron and Nas just happened to be headed from Las Vegas to New York City on the same flight. And that’s all it took to thaw a decade old rivalry. Cam was out in Vegas to support Dame and Jim Jones for their Vamp Life and Million Dollar Racers clothing line at the Agenda Trade Show.
According to my source, Nas and Cam saw each other, got to talking without any awkwardness or old tension. The photo wasn’t forced. Respect all around. And the best part, there was even talk of future collaboration.
Maybe that was just polite lip service but maybe, if we’re lucky, there will be a Killa x Godson Dipset x Bravehearts song someday.”
Hopefully a collabo comes out of this and if not, maybe Nas can model some of Cam’s new capes?
The Queens rap legend will also be premiering a documentary at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival’s opening night in NYC.
Time Is Illmatic, a documentary about Nas and his iconic album Illmatic, follows the epic path set by Nas’ 1994 landmark debut. Directed by multimedia artist, One9, This Is Illmatic takes a look back at Nas’ influences and the seemingly impossible odds he faced in creating one of hip-hop’s most cherished gems. The film also tracks the musical legacy of his family, including his jazz musician father, Olu Dara, the support of his Queensbridge neighborhood crew, and the loyalty of his younger brother Jabari “Jungle” Fret. Time Is Illmatic is supported by The Ford Foundation’s Just Films and Tribeca Film Institute’s Tribeca All Access program.
The premiere, taking place on Wednesday, April 16th, will be followed by a special musical performance in which Nas will perform every single track off the groundbreaking album.
