Anderson Cooper’s Secrets Are Safe With Cam’ron

camron2.jpgThe good about rapper Cam’ron’s 60 Minutes appearance this Sunday? He’s about to national prime-time television exposure! The bad news? Your stern-faced uncle is about to quiz you about this so-called “stop shvitzing” movement:

Cam’ron, whose real name is Cameron Giles, talks to Anderson Cooper for a report on how the hip-hop culture’s message to shun the police has undermined efforts to solve murders across the country…

“If I knew the serial killer was living next door to me?” Giles responds to a hypothetical question posed by Cooper. “I wouldn’t call and tell anybody on him — but I’d probably move. But I’m not going to call and be like, ‘The serial killer’s in 4E.’ “

Cooper followed up with even more pressing legal hypos, including “What if you lived next door to someone who never included cereal boxes as cardboard recyclables?” and “What if your landlord was a grape-smuggler–and I mean someone who actually illegally imports grapes?”, both of which caused Cam’ron to shrug half-heartedly while playing his P2P.

    He should’ve asked the following:

    Why can’t you rhyme?
    Why pink? Trying to say something?
    Why did you destroy a Dynasty?
    Why are you a fake thug?
    If you saw 50 in person, do you think you could honestly win? C’mon?

    “I’d probably move”? They never kill the neighbors. The smart thing to do is sit tight and work on saying “he seemed so quiet” so you sound natural for the local news interview.

    I’m thinking of a two word phrase commonly thrown around by the Diplomats that really should’ve been squeezed into this post somehow. Or would that have been too obvious?

  • Trackback

    If you had a mass-murderer living next door to you, you wouldn’t know. The neighbours never do, do they? “He seemed so perfectly normal, although with hindsight he did sometimes leave his milk out on the step until eleven, even on summer days, so there was something unsettling.”

    I would pay millions of dollars to be a fly on the wall backstage seeing Cam’ron and Jim Jones talking to Anderson Cooper. Does this mean AC is aware of the phrase, “baaaallllinnn” and if so, does he use it. This is all deeply troubling.
