Cam’ron Says Sorry

April 27th, 2007 // 4 Comments

In an attempt to soften the statements he made over the weekend on “60 Minutes,” in which the rapper claimed that he wouldn’t cooperate with police even if a serial killer were his neighbor, Cam’ron issued a statement further explaining the rationale behind what he said in the interview.

“Where I come from, once word gets out that you’ve cooperated with the police that only makes you a bigger target of criminal violence. That is a dark reality in so many neighborhoods like mine across America. I’m not saying it’s right, but it’s reality.”

“Looking back now, I can see how those comments could be viewed as offensive, especially to those who have suffered their own personal tragedies or to those who put their lives on the line to protect our citizens from crime,” the rap star said in a statement issued today. “Please understand that I was expressing my own personal frustration at my own personal circumstances. I in no way was intending to be malicious or harmful. I apologize deeply for this error in judgment.”

And then he went on to say, “Hey, at least I didn’t get caught on voicemail calling my daughter a ‘rude pig’.” OMG, Alec, I’m totally joking. Please don’t leave “30 Rock.”

    Well, I knew what he meant before the explanation (cops in my state are constantly being busted for being part of organized crime rings) but I am SO glad he took the time to clear it up and to apologize for how insensitive he sounded, especially to those that have been victimized by violence.

    His publicist made a good statement for him. That idiot wouldn’t be able to put those words together. His publicist saved his ass and made him seem like a decent human being.

    I have respect for Cam’ron…. even though he can be a bit flashy, he’s still WAY more hood than alot of other rapper’s claimin’ to be hard. At least he ain’t frontin’ like that snitch Currrrrtis!
