Cam’ron is not holding back after former video vixen Melyssa Ford accused him and his co-host Mase of engaging in sexual acts with underage girls. The legendary Harlem rapper has since threatened to sue for defamation.
Cam’ron Goes OFF
Cam’ron has responded to Melyssa Ford’s recent accusations, claiming that he and Mase engaged in sexual activities with underage girls. On Dec. 7, the former Dipset member went live on Instagram and addressed the allegations made by Ford:
“Thats some foul sh*t to say …and the times we in for you to make them type of allegations, [when you] don’t know what the f*ck you talking. You serious?” Cam’ron said.
Cam’ron also stated that he was contemplating a defamation lawsuit and took a dig at Ford for offering what he called a “fake apology.”
“I don’t even know who convinced her to do this shit, but whoever did, that was smart because now if I sue n*ggas for defamation of character, I’m a sucker, right? Well, I might be a sucker. I don’t know yet, I’m thinking about it … pause.”
Cam also joked about Ford not being from America, since she’s Canadian:
“You can’t just say shit like that and two days later be like, ‘Oh, my bad. I wasn’t thinking.’ You damn right you wasn’t thinking! Why say that in the beginning? You not even from here! You not even from this country!”
Users on Twitter (X) reacted to Cam’ron going after Ford on his live.
One user named @R9Hov commented, “This is corny..all the guys from the JBP scolded Melissa when she said that shit, “and one other user named @M4 was dead wrong for that comment. I deff understand why he’s going off like this.”
The conflict originated on Nov. 29, when Cam shared a story on his sports show, It Is What It Is, about him and his co-host Mase, having encounters with escorts in the 1990s. In response, during an episode of The Joe Budden Podcast, where Ford is a co-host, they reacted to the story and raised concerns that some of the escorts might have been underage girls.
“Is there a distinct possibility that there may have been underage girls in that whore house?” Ford asked.
Joe Budden would respond to Ford by saying, “I don’t know what you’re doing, but it’s disgusting what you’re doing.”
Neither Ford nor Budden has responded directly to Cam’ron’s comments, leaving the situation unresolved for the time being.
‘It Is What It Is’
In August 2023, Cam’ron and Mase found success outside of music with their sports talk show, It Is What It Is, securing an eight-figure deal with Underdog Fantasy.
The duo covers a range of sports topics, conducts athlete interviews, and offers sports analysis, showcasing their talents beyond the rap industry.
In September 2023, Mase allegedly reconciled with former label boss Diddy, resolving their two-decade-long feud. Cam’ron revealed that Mase finally received his publishing from Diddy. Notably, however, Diddy faced allegations of sexually assaulting an underage girl in 2003, adding a layer of complexity to the situation.
Tasha K Sued For Defamation By Cardi B
This incident echoes another recent defamation case involving YouTuber Tasha K, and Cardi B. Tasha K faced a lawsuit from Cardi B for suggesting that the Bronx rapper had an STD and worked as a prostitute, with Cardi claiming emotional distress caused by these statements.
