Cam’ron spoke with Montreality about a litany of matters recently. He answered their standard questions regarding his “first job,” “previous life,” “realest line he wrote,” etc. In between, however, Cam revealed some very personal nuggets. Among them, he discussed the unorthodox way he “obtained” his G.E.D., which was rendered particularly ironic given his parting message to the youth about the importance of getting an education (high school and college) and following their dreams. He also revisited his infamous exchanges with Bill O’Reilly and then Anderson Cooper on 60 minutes.

Perhaps, Cam’ron’s most compelling perspective came when asked about the killing of Michael Brown. He expressed appropriate disgust about the situation. However, he also addressed what he saw as a distinct level of passivity in New York City with respect to such matters. While not suggesting rioting as the answer, he spoke of his disappointment at what he saw as the relatively short-lived and muted responses in New York to the deaths of Eric Garner, Sean Bell and others at the hands of the police. Here’s the video.
