Miss Info:After the initial shock from fans upon hearing that Cam’Ron and Atrak had teamed up for an EP called Federal Reserve, there’s been nothing but rave reviews of the pair’s first single, “Humphrey.” But since the song dropped today, both Dipset heads and industry execs alike have been speculating on the meaning behind Cam’s opening rhymes…
Wait, did Cam just say that he wanted to fight “B-High“? As in Jay Z’s cousin, and Roc fam? Is this a throwback reference to the days when Cam and Hov had beef?
The real reference is actually more random and interesting. Cam actually says…
“Dame said I’m bout it cuz I wanna fight B-Hop.
I said I’ll fuck him up after 2 months of detox.
True. Besides that, 8 mill from Reebok,
I take him to the bar, Pa, that’s 33 shots…”

Yes. That’s B-Hop, as in Bernard Hopkins. As in the former World Middleweight Boxing Champion.
Cam’ron tells me he might actually get in the boxing ring and fight Hopkins sometime this year. For pay-per-view. Obviously.
Is Cam intimidated by Philly’s former champ Hopkins? Well, the boxer is still in fighting form but he is 49 years old now and, as Cam puts it, hasn’t knocked anyone out since ’05.
Oh, by the way… “Humphrey” is Bernard Hopkins’ middle name.
Is that not the best story ever?!
UPDATE: Bernard Hopkins accepts Cam’s request, then shortly deleted the tweet.
