This Cam'ron vs Jay-Z business apparently has the streets talking, the internet going nuts, and platitudes platituding, so it was only a matter of days (hours? minutes?) before the mixtape commentary began. Sean Mac strikes with Fuck Jay-Z, where on the cover a gang of gunmen plan to blam hammers at Jay, while Killa and Dame crack up like they just watched the unrated version of Wedding Crashers. Then DJ Hpnotiq's Swagger Jackin' Vol 2 features an image of Jiggy-Jigz burning a photo of Cam before burnining a spliff like Bob Marley. While the DJs may be taking sides, what's great about these two images is that they were both created by mixtape artist extraordinaire Miami-Kaos, who we featured in issue #33. The color palate is the same and so is the message: fuck the drama, stack paper.
