Recording a video address for Instagram, Cam suggested that he was used in an ad for Love & Hip Hop: New York without his permission. "I am not a cast member on Love & Hip-Hop," he begins. "I did a scene for Juelz, 'cause he's on the show. I did a scene for JuJu, 'cause she's on the show. I should not be in anybody's commercials, especially when the paperwork isn't done."

It looks like Cam’ron is still feeling some type of way towards music insider/manager Karen Civil.

#TBT: Max B
Max B was out of jail for little over a year when he caught a robbery and murder conspiracy charge in 2006. For the three years that followed, up until the time he was convicted, he put out a volume of music rivaled only my Gucci Mane. Born Charly Wingate, the self-anointed Biggavelli -- a portmanteau of Notorious B.I.G., Jay Z, and Tupac's nicknames -- teamed up with legendary New York producer Dame Grease, who produced about half of DMX's landmark It's Dark and Hell is Hot, and conjured a wave of creative energy that is still felt today.

Cam'ron was a member of a highly regarded rap group called Children of the Corn in the '90s. Another member of the group was Big L, the legendary emcee who was gunned down in 1999. His suspected killer, Gerald Woodley, was killed earlier this year in Harlem, and Cam'ron showed up to his funeral. Late last night, Killa Cam shared a new verse on Instagram in which he addresses Big L and his murderer:
Before A$AP Mob came to power, Harlem was once ruled by a crew known as The Diplomats. Comprised of Cam'ron, Juelz Santana, Jim Jones, Freeky Zeekey, and a few other bit players, Dipset parlayed its street tales (of varying levels of glamor) and affinity for sped-up soul samples into a legacy as one of the most iconic rap groups of the '00s.

Last month, Dipset made a surprise return with "Oh Yeah." Well, not all of Dipset, but the song found the duo of Cam'Ron and Juelz Santana trading bars like it was '05.

Top Tracks: May 16 - May 22
This past week, we were finally able to take a deep breath and reflect on all of the major projects we've heard in the past month -- A$AP Ferg, Bankroll Mafia, Beyoncé, Drake, Skepta, Rittz, Chance The Rapper, and Post Malone have all dropped full-lengths in that relatively brief timespan. It would appear that the summer's first burst of high-profile albums has subsided, but as we await projects from Travi$ Scott, YG, ScHoolboy Q, and others, at least guys like The Underachievers and Casey Veggies have given us something new to chew on.
