Social media ended Cam + Juju
Cam’ron came clean about what drove him and his long-term boo Juju apart on an episode of The Breakfast Club… and it’s not what you might think. While Juju was pushing the narrative that they fell apart because Cam was stepping out, Cam says the culprit was Instagram.
The rapper shared that their relationship soured once he felt like he had to promote her on the social media platform.
“Yeah well you know basically it was just kind of mutual,” he said of their split. “You know’ for me it just wasn’t fun anymore. I met Juju in 2002, she was my friend before we even started being serious. That was my homegirl and everything was fun. But for me, once Instagram came out. I’m the one promoting her and marketing her. Basically, it just stopped being fun.”
Cam said he has a standard for his relationships and once it started to feel more transactional, he was out. He further said that sense of closeness and intimacy between his boo and himself needs to remain, even if they are helping each other in business.
“You gotta be my best friend, still. That’s what I’m in it for,” he exlpained. “But it just stopped being fun.”
Reality TV To Blame?
Cam also denied any rumors that said Juju’s time on reality television put a strain on their relationship.
“I’m the one who got her on Love & Hip Hop. I negotiated the deal,” he said. I’m the one who told her to do it.”
Cam said he made the decision to be public about their split once he realized it was going to be turned into a storyline for the VH1 franchise.
“A lot of people think Love & Hip-Hop is real,” he said, before explaining why he came out with the story before it could be heard on the reality show. “Let people know because I ain’t feel Love & Hip-Hop need to know…I didn’t think it needed to be publicized for the first time on Love & Hip-Hop.”
In spite of all the recent flare-ups, Cam says they’ve been apart for nearly half a year and it’s all good.
“We been broke up for about six months, but we cool,” he said.
Cam also discussed his recent drama with Mase, who torched him in a new song called “The Oracle.”
“I’ve never dissed Mase in my life,” said Cam’Ron, before explaining why he’s not a fan:
“I don’t mess with Mase no more, cause me personally I just go by a different standard than people. Once you start playin’ with God and start taking people’s money, and say rap is the devil then come back and rap cause you ain’t got no money, I just can’t pump with you. I’m not sayin’ I’m the most religious guy in the world, but I don’t play with you when you play with God. There was a time when he was like ‘yo, you know Deacons is gettin’ that money.’ I was like it’s over. I can’t really mess with you.”
