Last night, Tuesday June 3, Cam’ron was scheduled to perform at The Forum in Kentish town, London, for what would have been his first UK show in a decade. After Skepta and his Boy Better Know crew performed the opening set there was a thirty minute gap, before DJ Manny Norte got on the mic to tell everyone:
Cam’ron’s not performing, I know as much as you guys do – but people will get full refunds.
Cue angry fans storming the stage and rushing backstage to—one can only suppose—try and find Cam’ron. With DJ Tim Westwood’s Instagram seemingly confirming that Cam had been backstage, rumors began to fly that he had been jacked for his jewelry or that promoters angry about a no-show years ago were demanding to speak to him.
Cam’ron, however, said on Instagram that he was never at the venue, which was confirmed by others on Twitter. While it might never become clear exactly what happened, some fans’ (understandably) angry reactions are pretty hilarious.
Update: According to Cam’ron’s Instagram, the rapper states he left the venue as he feared for his safety:
