Cam'ron says 'New York is kind of soft as a city'

Cam'ron recently did a interview and addresses the situation in Ferguson. I think it’s messed up, “A lot of times what I think is honestly, us New Yorkers when it comes to situations like that we kinda soft as a city. But it’s situations like that. Because, I mean, don’t get me wrong our police are probably like police was in the 90s in L.A. You know what I’m saying? I don’t know how they are today in L.A…The police was wild. Police are like that today in New York because everybody makes a big deal about Mike Brown and that is a reason to make a big deal, a very big deal. But it was a guy two weeks prior to Mike Brown who got choked up by the cops for just selling cigarettes. He got choked out on camera."  

The rapper made sure to stress that he does not condone violence, but feels that there needs to be more opposition to these events.

"They taking a stand. As opposed to New York we got two people who died recently from police we don’t say nothing…I’m pissed Barack ain’t say nothing about it yet. But just in general it happens in New York a lot and we sweep it under the rug. But then we quick to jump on the Mike Brown bandwagon."
