Cam’ron Believes The Way To Make America Great Again Is To Start Snitchin’ (Video)
In 2007, Cam’ron made national news for his views on “snitching.” Speaking with Anderson Cooper on 60 Minutes, Cam’ matter-of-factly said he had no intention of divulging any information to the police about whoever had shot him in 2005. Although he was shot in both arms, with lingering nerve damage in one of them, Cam’ron told Cooper he would not have told police who shot him, if he had seen them, “because the type of business I’m in, it would definitely hurt my business and, the way that I was raised, I just don’t do that. I was raised differently, not to tell.” Cam’ron even said he would not alert police if a serial killer was living next to him, saying that he would move, instead.
Fast-forward 10 years later, and the world has vastly changed. Specifically, November 8, 2016 was Election Day for the United States (aka Opposite Day) and the country decided to go from having Barack Obama as its leader to electing Donald Trump for the position. While many are still reeling, Cam has sprung into action and first on his agenda is the hearty endorsement of snitching.
Over the years, Cam has made some killa appearances on Comedy Central. On one occasion, he became the Harlem version of Santa Claus, and it was not nice. Similarly, another time, he was given the reins to the Human Resources department, and it was not business as usual. Cam’s latest appearance comes in the form of a public service announcement, and it is classic.
In the short but hilarious clip, Cam’ron says “Times change. With Donald Trump as President, y’all snitches have a civic ass responsibility to tell us what he’s up to.” Cam then proceeds to methodically list those people and organizations that have an obligation to start snitchin.’
One thing is certain, from SNL to Bill Maher, comedy has been on fire since the election.
