Cam’ron has linked up with NBA star Damian Lillard to recreate a classic scene from his 2002 movie Paid in Full.

On Thursday (August 31), film director No Talents shared a photo on his Instagram Stories of the Dipset rapper and Dame D.O.L.L.A. sat at a roundtable eating Chinese food alongside California artist Yxung Rell.

The trio were paying homage to the Paid in Full scene where Cam’ron (Rico), Mekhi Phifer (Mitch) and Wood Harris (Ace) eat dinner, and Rico bets Ace and Rico that they can’t “make the shot” while throwing their waste into a trash can like a basketball.

The movie, produced by JAY-Z and Dame Dash’s Roc-A-Fella Films, was based on Harlem drug lords Rich Porter, Alpo Martinez and Azie “AZ” Faison’s time running the streets of New York City in the 1980s.

Fittingly enough, the footage appears to be for Dame’s upcoming music video for “Paid in Full,” a song from his recently-released Don D.O.L.L.A. album.

In another video posted on No Talents’ IG Story, the Portland Trail Blazers guard could be seen rapping in a dry cleaners — a place where Ace earned his keep in the beginning of Paid in Full.

Between signing a lucrative deal for his popular sports debate show It Is What It Is and prepping a new mixtape called The Lost Files, Cam’ron has been a busy man lately.

He also recently performed at the epic Hip Hop 50 Live concert at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York City, which came in celebration of the genre’s 50th anniversary.

The star-studded show also boasted performances from NasSnoop DoggLil WayneWu-Tang ClanIce CubeT.I.CommonRun-DMC and a host of other rap legends.

Following the event, Cam took to Instagram to thank Nas — who helped organize it alongside Mass Appeal — for overlooking their past beef and including him on the lineup.

“I wanna give a quick shoutout to that n-gga Nas real quick,” he said in a video. “Queensbridge Nas, yes, Escobar. A lot of people may not know, or if you do know, that was his event, him and his company’s event, Mass Appeal, at Yankee Stadium the other day.”

“For them to invite me and make me a part of the Hip Hop 50 shit that they put together, knowing the history we had in the past, that was really big of him to respect what I got going on as my contribution to Hip Hop the last 25 years I’ve been doing it.”

He continued: “The past we had, whether it was beef or not beef or just music, whatever it is, I appreciate the invite from probably the greatest lyricist in our time, in our era. So I just wanna say I’m thankful for that, thank you Mass Appeal.

The pair’s beef started in 2002 when Nas called Cam’s Come Home with Me album “wack” during a rant on Power 105.1 following his canceled Hot 97 Summer Jam performance.
