This week Cam’ron became one of several big name personalities to offer his take on Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant’s recent woes.
Ja, 24, landed in hot water last week after a video seemingly showed him brandishing a firearm following a night of partying. Reports later emerged regarding dancers complaining about him and detailing the previously unknown demons he has apparently been dealing with.
In light of that, Ja’s father Tee has come under increased scrutiny. Particularly given his high-profile nature at games and once-upon-a-time reputation for being a strong role model for his son.
During an appearance on ‘It Is What It Is’ this week Cam’ron delivered a blunt message to Tee on the topic.
Cam’ron sends a message to Tee Morant:
“You gotta start being a more father figure…the sunglasses, the wilding out trying to fight Shannon Sharpe, having look alike contests with Usher. I understand you’re the new age dad, but this is a little too cool. Tee Morant, we have to… https://t.co/GYgZNTMqZZ pic.twitter.com/OKptBOVr25

“You gotta start being a more father figure,” he said.
“…the sunglasses, the wilding out trying to fight Shannon Sharpe, having look alike contests with Usher. I understand you’re the new age dad, but this is a little too cool. Tee Morant, we have to set a better example.”
It will be interesting to see if Tee ultimately takes that feedback to heart.
Cam’ron is actually no stranger to delivering brutal messages to NBA personalities. His threat to Brooklyn Nets star Ben Simmons also caused something of a stir earlier this year.

The Morant family is currently the talk of the NBA world. So much so that even rappers are getting in on the action.
Will Tee ultimately heed Cam’rons advice regarding Ja? One way or another, an answer will emerge soon enough.
