Hova's Ova?

Cam'Ron “Killa Cam” has released two diss tracks that call Hova out for biting rhymes! Also, for being too old. And being UGLY! Blam! Apparently, he looks like a Fraggle (and Joe Camel) and wears sandals with jeans! Cam introduced the tracks yesterday on Streetsweeper Radio:

Cam’ron – Interview w/DJ Kay, 1/18/06 (mp3)

On the first track, “Swagger Jacker”, Jay’s lines are pitted against those of the artists he ripped – Notorious BIG, Snoop Dogg, Slick Rick, Nas, Big L, and even Tupac. A refrain from his “What More Can I Say?” track, where he says, “I’m not a biter, I’m a writer for myself and others” – is remixed into “I’m not a writer, I’m a biter”. Pretty biting commentary, but this is old news, and actually an old track – it surfaced on the internet last February as a track called “Stolen Lines”. It seems to have been slightly remixed for "Swagger Jacker", with Cam’s added commentary.

The actual diss track is below, complete with the Killa’s pertinent critique of Hova’s fashion choices, a shaded accusation that Jay was behind Cam getting shot in 2005, and a reminder that Beyonce was on a Cam track “fucking singing about slinging crack” before she worked with Jay. Oh, and, uh: “You ugly, dawg! You ugly! You ugly, man! You ugly! Ha ha ha!” Yeah.

This is all in time for the Diplomats’ Dipset Volume 6 release on Feb 14, naturally.

How’s the King of New York rocking sandals with jeans?

Damn. Killa came out swinging. It's kinda funny, however I feel like the message gets lost about halfway through this 8-minute opus. Did we really need all the Dipset shout-outs? I don't know if I could handle 15 rounds of this. The question I have though - who will Kanye roll with from now on?

Well said, I can't believe Killa's going after Jigga after Welcome to New York City. Where will Kanye stand?
