Cam'ron told Mreck TV that when he signed to Roc-A-Fella Records in 2001, he was dead broke.
"After two albums [before Roc-A-Fella] I was pop," he explained.
Cam then said that he received a large check around that time, which obviously would've helped him but he lost it.
"I was in front of Baseline [studios]. I lost the $10,000 check," he said. "Yo, we in front of the studio, I'm dead pop, I just signed to Roc-A-Fella, but I'm dead pop. I done gambled, did all type of shit, I'm dead pop. I found [an] Ohio lick though, but I got a check out the blue for 10,000. I lost it."
The Harlem rapper said that he and Freaky Zeekey searched the streets looking for the check, and when they found it under a car they were so happy they started crying. Did you think Cam was broke when he signed to the Roc back in the day?
