Former dope dealer and Jay-Z’s ex-homeboy Calvin Klein on Joe Camel’s inauthenticity:
“In the 80’s, Jay wasn’t trying to be a drug dealer he was tryna be a rapper but in order for him to transcend himself into this hell of a dude, he had to take characters from the 80’s like myself , said Klein. “ I give him 10% of his life that he talked about; I gotta give him something, [laughs]. He is from Brooklyn, he lived in Marcy Projects, his name is Sean Carter, he got that right.”
“To me Jay‘s a white boy on the inside , no offense to any white boys but to me he’s white boy on the inside and I’m waiting for time to tell what he’s gonna do with the outside of himself ,” Klein continued. “ I’m surprised he should have done himself a favor and pout me on his team . How you gon let Akon pull me in , official Konvict. Akon provided the chance and an opportunity for guys like myself, Jay could have done that out the gate but he didn’t.”
“Why are most of the artists at Def Jam on the shelf? Why is it about Jay-Z and his music?. Bring Bleek out. Let Bleek hold his own You don’t have to say Bleek don’t have to another drop album, I got him for life’. He can hold his own , he’s a man , let him come out with an album and get his ones and units up . Don’t give him nothing.”
Another case of Mr. Camel and his swagger-jacking, but hey, whatever works, right? Obviously he’s gonna keep swagger-jacking his ass all the way to the bank. Well, at least this dude has a job (many ex-cons have a hard time finding work), thanks to Akon and Konvict music, SMH.
