2007_04_arts_cam.jpgCam'ron snitched about the "no snitching" rule on 60 Minutes Sunday, and is now apologizing for his comments on the show. To explain the rule, he told Anderson Cooper that "If I knew the serial killer was living next door to me? I wouldn't call and tell anybody on him -- but I'd probably move. But I'm not going to call and be like, 'The serial killer's in 4E.'" A bit disconcerting.

TMZ is reporting that Cam'ron has issued a statement saying:

"Where I come from, once word gets out that you've cooperated with the police that only makes you a bigger target of criminal violence. That is a dark reality in so many neighborhoods like mine across America. I'm not saying it's right, but it's reality.

Looking back now, I can see how those comments could be viewed as offensive, especially to those who have suffered their own personal tragedies or to those who put their lives on the line to protect our citizens from crime. Please understand that I was expressing my own personal frustration at my own personal circumstances. I in no way was intending to be malicious or harmful. I apologize deeply for this error in judgment."

Seems like the apology came from someone in camp Cam'ron, and not from the rapper himself. Also makes it sound like the "no snitching" rule is still firmly in place.
