In the new track, Cam’ron said:
“Know me I ran down on shorty real quick. But guess what she asked me, yo Word? She said Jay made you a millionaire and looked me in the eyes /Said cake, cake, cake got that from the pies /We made each other millions, that was my reply /But had a mill before I met him, baby, that ain’t no lie /See he named some Harlem cats and the homie from the Chi /But my thing, he ain’t name nobody from the Stuy /And I do it like Bed-Stuy, do or die”
Some music bloggers have interpreted Cam’s comments as a diss toward Jay. RapGenius offered their own explanation:
Jay Z is as we all know from Marcy Projects located in the Bed-Stuy neighborhood of Brooklyn. He named six people in “Pound Cake” and not one of them are from Brooklyn, so Cam’ron is implying that Jay never put on for his neighborhood.
Jigga’s name-calling verse in Pound Cake went thus:
“Cake, cake-cake, cake-cake, cake /500 million, I got a pound cake /N*ggas is fronting, that’s upside-down cake /Get ‘em a red nose, they clown cakes /They shoulda never let you ’round cake /Look at my neck, I got a carrot cake /Now here’s the icing on the cake /Cake, cake-cake, cake-cake, uhh /I’m just getting started, oh, yeah, we got it bitch /I’ve done made more millionaires than the lotto did /Dame made millions, Biggs made millions /Ye made millions, Just made millions /Lyor made millions, Cam made millions /Beans’ll tell you if he wasn’t in his feelings”
