US rapper Cam’ron has said his no show at the London Forum on Tuesday (3 June), was due to the potential of a gang attack.
The event on Tuesday 3 June 2014 was to be the rapper’s first London show in ten years, but was cancelled at 10:20pm after the rapper failed to turn up. Fact writes that Capital Xtra’s Manny Norte announced: “Cam’ron’s not performing, I know as much as you guys do – but people will get full refunds.”
Following the announcement people began to kick off and rushed the stage, which can be seen in the video below.
Cam’Ron has since addressed the issue in a post on his Instagram page, writing:
“So niggas brought 50 niggas to da show to jump me..in London? And rush da stage?!.. But me and juju was doing this..imum y’all better come wit..Lol.. Sorry to all my fans dat came to da show but as u can see they tried to line me up. And only da barber lines me up.. They had 15 niggas in front of da stage (that rushed the stage) and 35 niggas outside.. And I was wit 2 niggas..

Dumb ass gangsta’s lmfaoooo”
The statement appears to confirm suspicions that an altercation or potential altercation could have been on the cards. Supposedly it relates to a long running feud from the 00’s between Dipset and a group that includes So Solid Crew’s Mega Man. You can read all about the speculation here, which relates to a missing 80,000 grand and allegations Dipset were kidnapped.
