Stop Snitchin’: Cam’ron Makes History on “60 Minutes”

      Cam’ron made hip-hop history by becoming the first pink shirt advocate to appear on CBS’s 60 Minutes Sunday night. Killa Cam shared his insight on the now played out “no snitching” street code. Predictably, he defended the code of ethics, citing business reasons.

      “With the type of business I’m in, it would definitely hurt my business,” Cam’ron told CNN’s Anderson Cooper before adding, “and the way that I was raised, I just don’t do that. I was raised differently, not to tell.”

      Cam said he wouldn’t talk to po-po even if there was a serial killer was living next door to him. Asked whether there could be any situation where he’d feel comfortable talking to the law, he responded: “Yeah, definitely. Say ‘Hello, how you feel, everything alright?’ Period.”

       Geoffrey Canada, an anti-violence advocate who was also interviewed on the topic, begs to differ.

       “People are walking around with shirts. People are going out making, making music. People are saying things that if you’re a snitch it’s like being an Uncle Tom was when I was growing up,” said Canada. “It’s like you can’t be a black person if you have a set of values that say, ‘I will not watch crime happen in my community without getting involved to stop it.’”

      I’m not sure how can pin this ignorant trend on Don Imus but I’m sure it’s possible.  CLICK HERE TO VIEW PART 2

  1. These stop snitching dudes are comedians because it’s not about keeping it real it’s trying not to get killed. It’s fucked up that our communities are in chaos because know one sees or hears shit when it falls out there ass and touches the water. Manics are running around killing brothers, sisters, mothers, and fathers, and we continue to allow this shit to happen. Busta had his RIP signs but how is his slain body guards family resting knowing he holds the key to stop their heart ache. Camron needs to tell us all the truth which is all of us feel completely scared of retaliation. P.S. if a serial killers lives next door to me I’m ratting his ass out!

  2. Hell yeah. I agree. Cam just looked retarded up there anwsering questions. If that messed happen to his fam he’ll talk 2 police then.

  3. The stop snitchin’ movement is dead. If you are wearing a t-shirt you look stupid. Also Cam was probably the only rapper that would go on camera. Everyone knows that it is not in your best interest to cooperate.

  4. I also agree cam is a dumbass we dont snitch because we dont want them fuckers coming back for us but if the whole block says somthin they cant do shit we need to get these dickheads of the street they make us look bad
