Juelz Santana speaks about his career:
The mayor of “Santana’s Town” has been embroiled in behind-the-scenes contractual turmoil with his onetime mentor Cam’ron. “I was upset about the part of me being ‘sold for $2 million,’ ” Santana told MTV News, standing in front of his New Jersey studio on Thursday. “At times like this, nobody is trying to ‘sell’ me. I could have come out and said, ‘Oh, yeah, Cam got bought out.’ But I didn’t go that route. They just gotta watch me move. We gonna make it hot.”
Now that he recently got out of his legal obligation to Cam’s Diplomat Records, the 23-year-old is signed directly to Def Jam. Juelz said “tons” of his work on other artists’ songs never saw the light of day. “I’m just gonna say a lot of big records. … I was on a good portion of those records, or asked to be on a good portion of those records that [Lil] Wayne was on — along with him, not like they asked me before they asked him, or vice versa. I have no hard feelings towards Cam,” he explained. “I tell people I couldn’t do business with him. But I will say he gave me the biggest chance I needed. I’m a dude from the ‘hood, so the chance he gave me is a chance I needed to never turn back. I’m good. My artistry, my talent, my career was never built on controversy. So I would never come out and say a whole bunch of things that could be said. All I can say is, I’m sorry he can’t be here to be a part of what’s about to happen, because we’re about to tear ’em up.”
We guess Killa Cam will just sit back and continue to talk sh*t from his little kiddie pool.
