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.
