New Orleans was poppin’ with parties, celebrities, concerts, and booze last weekend all thanks to the 2017 NBA All-Star Game coming to town.
Reebok and Footaction teamed up to host a “Classics in the Courtyard” concert on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. Reebok ambassadors (Cam’ron, Teyana Taylor and Curren$y) took turns on the stage to perform their tracks rocking their unreleased Reebok shoes for the crowd.
Cam caught up with XXL before he hit the stage and got to ask him a few questions. Killa opened up to the magazine a bit about his “beef” with Jim Jones, what’s going on with Joe Budden, and how his All-Star Weekend was going in general.
XXL: What do you love most about All-Star Weekend and how’s your experience in New Orleans thus far?
Cam’ron: All-Star weekend always treats me great. I love the atmosphere that comes with it. You get to see people you haven’t seen in a while and you get to meet new people, and just enjoy the culture, you know? Depends on what city you’re in, of course. New Orleans is a very eclectic city so just to see everything that’s going on right now, like all of the beads, and girls half naked and the great food in the city. It’s a beautiful time for me and I’m having a great time.
XXL: I know you addressed the Jim Jones interview he did with Funkmaster Flex a few weeks back. Are you done going back and forth with Jim?
Cam’ron: Yeah, absolutely, man. I didn’t want to do it back then. You know, in that particular scenario, a lot of people were coming at me like I was a bad guy and I just wanted to clear some things up, but to be honest, I didn’t want to do it last week. I just did it because I didn’t want people looking at me like I was a crab ass dude. It’s water under bridge, so hopefully we can move on.
XXL: Will we ever see you guys reunite?
Cam’ron: I mean, he’s moved on the way he’s moved on and me, I’m happy with what I’m doing and sometimes people just outgrow each other, you know what I’m saying? You know, maybe way, way down the line, but right now I’m just in a different space and I wish him the best of luck and I’m gonna continue doing what I’m doing.
XXL: Another incident was the one with you and Joe Budden recently. You guys cleared it up on Instagram, but are you both good now?
Cam’ron: You know what’s funny? I just called Joe Budden a little while ago because what happened was I never seen the actual interview so after I put that [comment] on Instagram, we spoke and then I actually watched the interview and he did say that he was like, “I would’ve had to step to him,” but I called him a few minutes ago and told him, “Yo, I never seen the interview. What do you mean you would fuck me up?” So basically the moral of the story is, he was saying if it was him and his friends, not Killa Cam per say, and we’re good now and he said he’d clear it up on his next podcast so that’s cool and we good now.
