Tricky Ricky Shirts

In the third video below, Cam’ron reveals why him and Jim Jones started beefing.  Jim met Chrissy Lampkin and fell in love.  At the time, Cam and Jim had numerous women so Cam made fun of Jim for tricking.  Cam’ron made shirts with “Tricky Ricky” on the front of it to make fun of Jim.  Cam passed the shirts out to multiple members of his crew and Jim wasn’t happy.  Cam says that’s when him and Jim’s relationship was ruined.
