Cam’ron Defends Having O.J. Simpson On ‘It is What It Is’: ‘If He Was Guilty, We Wouldn’t Have Him On The Show’

Cam'ron defended having O.J. Simpson on his sports podcast.

Cam’ron is defending having O.J. Simpson on his sports podcast since he seemingly believes Simpson isn’t guilty of anything involving the 1994 murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend, Ron Goldman.

Simpson has become a repeat guest on Cam’ron and Ma$e’s It Is What It Is podcast. The show is all about sports. Simpson, an NFL great who played 11 seasons, primarily with the Buffalo Bills, is qualified to offer his take on the happenings of the sports world.

But considering Simpson’s infamous 1995 acquittal of Brown and Goldman’s murders, many have criticized Cam and Ma$e for having the disgraced actor and sports star on their show. However, Cam’ron recently spoke with Complex and explained the hard work that went into securing Simpson and his unwavering support of the Naked Gun star.

“It was Ma$e’s idea to get OJ on the show,” Cam revealed. “We had a bunch of people we wanted to get and Ma$e was like, let’s get OJ. So I started making the calls.”

Cam’s first instinct was to reach out to music executive Steve Stoute, who was clueless on how to do reach Simpson until he reached out to Lionel Richie, who put Stoute in direct contact with Simpson.

“I spoke to one of OJ’s people and we worked it out, man,” Cam said. “I didn’t even know OJ was staying in Vegas. So it worked out. It was like, ‘Oh, it was really perfect. We spoke and it was a done deal.'”

As for all the chatter surrounding Simpson’s criminal past and whether or not he was involved in the murders of his ex-wife and her friend, Cam is OK with that.

“Look, if he was guilty we wouldn’t have him on the show,” he said. “Y’all want to keep convicting an innocent man. He’s innocent. If it was somebody else whiter, y’all would say, “Oh, he’s innocent.’”

Simpson was acquitted in 1995 despite outcry from the public. He would remain free from serving time in jail until 2008 when he was prosecuted for stealing sports memorabilia from the Palace Station Hotel in Las Vegas. He was released in 2017.
