Most people know Cam’Ron (real name Cameron Ezike Giles) as one of the biggest rappers of the late 90s and early 2000s.
But did you know that he was also once a high-level basketball recruit in New York City?
Now the legendary Dipset founder is offering a word of advice to Memphis Grizzlies superstar Ja Morant.
Morant, of course, is facing a length suspension from the NBA after a second violation of the league’s firearm policy in just a matter of months.
“In terms of the timing, we’ve uncovered a fair amount of additional information I think since I was still asked about the situation,” NBA commissioner Adam Silver said about the league’s ongoing investigation into Morant.
“I would say we probably could’ve brought it to a head now but we made the decision and I believe the players association agrees with us that it would be unfair to these players and these teams in the middle of this series to announce the results of that investigation and given that we are of course in the offseason, he is now been suspended by the Memphis Grizzlies indefinitely so nothing would have changed anyway in the next few weeks.”
Everyone from current players, former players and even gang members have tried to step in and help Morant. Whether Morant listens to them is another story.
But after Morant’s first incident at club in Denver, Cam’Ron said that the Grizzlies star was using mental health as an excuse. While podcast co-host and fell rap legend Ma$e said Morant is trying to make it “out of the league and into the hood.”
Now, after the second incident, Cam’Ron is imploring Morant to do better and not follow the same path that he did.
“I was on b******* in college,” he wrote. “I got kicked out for pistol whipping a n****. (Which I don’t condone) lucky I had a plan B and C. Ja don’t be me you can’t rap!!!”
He also posted pictures of himself flashing gang signs in his junior college basketball team photo.
