Cam’ron Raps About Dame Dash Slapping Harvey Weinstein On The Diplomats’ “Once Upon A Time”

It all went down on the set of ‘Paid In Full.’

The Diplomats made their return yesterday with the new single “Once Upon A Time,” which is produced by their longtime collaborators The Heatmakerz. The track has mostly gained attention for a few lyrics on Cam'ron’s verse, where he spits about a tense encounter between Dame Dash and disgraced former Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

On the track, Cam raps:

No disrespecting the ladies, word from my team (why)
That’s the reason Dame smacked Harvey Weinstein (pervert)
On the set of Paid In Full, y'all gave him hell about it
Some foul shit happened once, Capo, tell ‘em about it

Cam co-starred in the 2002 film Paid In Full as the character Rico, appearing alongside Wood Harris and Mekhi Phifer. Dame Dash, an executive at Roc A Fella at the time, served as one of the films producers, along with JAY-Z and Brett Ratner. Weinstein’s production company Mirimax distributed the film, but never worked with Dame again afterwards. Dame Dash recently sounded off on his experience working with Weinstein in an interview with Hip Hop Motivation:

As he explained, they never got along because he saw Weinstein treat people poorly, although he’s vague about what exactly happened between them:

The reason I got into the independent movie business was because of the Weinsteins, because I didn’t like the way they treated people… I know I made Paid in Full over there, and I know that him and I had a lot of aggressive interaction. And I know even culturally, like, my people would say things, like, I would see interviews with Wood Harris and with Just Blaze and all that, and they’d be like, ’Oh he yelled at Harvey Weinstein. He yelled at the Weinsteins.’ But the bottom line is, when I look at somebody treat other people wrong, I can’t just look the other way. And any opportunity I get, I know I’m strong…but I’m always gonna make them suffer for the people that aren’t strong enough. The people I usually bomb on are the ones you find out are treating other people poorly.

Weinstein keeps ending up in the news for his affiliation with big-name musicians. Lana Del Rey decided to retire her 2012 song “Cola” last month after revealing that she had a “Harvey Weinstein/Harry Winston-type of character in mind” when she wrote it. In his initial apology after being accused of sexual assault, Weinstein misquoted JAY-Z lyrics. And in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Drake revealed that he declined to work with Weinstein on upcoming film projects after Future the Prince received negative feedback about him. Seems like hip-hop knew Weinstein was sketchy all along.
