Cam'ron recently defended Ja Morant.

Cam'ron recently appeared on the It Is What It Is podcast, where he shared his thoughts on strippers from the club Ja Morant flashed a gun at wanting an apology. They further discussed the incident, which saw the athlete brandishing the gun on Instagram Live. Cam'ron stated that people bring guns to strip clubs all the time, claiming that if Lil Durk brought a gun to their club they would have been fine with it. He suggests that the dancers are just hopping on the bandwagon after Morant's recent controversy.

The conversation took place after one of the exotic dancers claimed they never received an apology. “I don’t foresee an apology [anytime] soon,” she told the New York Post, “He’s a boy.” Another employee of the club also spoke on the incident. "He’s clearly begging for attention and trying to be a baller," she claims. "He should be banned from all clubs and get his NBA career taken away given our country’s current circumstances on gun violence.” The club’s owner Deborah Dunafon, however, called Morant “exceptionally respectful, and sweet,” shortly after the incident took place.

Following the incident, Morant shared an apology. "I know I’ve disappointed a lot of people who have supported me,” his statement begins. “This is a journey and I recognize there is more work to do. My words may not mean much right now, but I take full accountability for my actions. I’m committed to continuing to work on myself.” Morant was later accused of using AI to generate the apology.

Ja Morant was recently suspended from the Memphis Grizzlies following the Instagram Live incident. A wellness check was also conducted on Morant earlier this month, following him sharing several cryptic messages to social media. Fans were concerned about the posts, which included the athlete telling various family members he loves them, and concluded with him saying "bye." Police later confirmed that Morant was okay after visiting his home where he claimed to be simply "taking a break from social media."
