K Camp has taken some time to address anyone who thinks he’s lost touch as an artist.
On Thursday (January 5), K Camp performed at Sir. The Jay Hill Show and he opened up about whether he feels he’s “fallen off” as a rapper.
“I heard all that shit,” K Camp said when asked if he had heard talk that his skills had deteriorated. “No artist doesn’t want to hear that they fell off. But you have to understand what the definition of falling off is. N– gas use that term so loosely. What falls off? Falling off to me is fucked somewhere under a bridge without paper, with a box that says: ‘Can I have some food?’ It falls off.”
He continued, “When n-ggas talk about falling off in music, like they don’t hear you on the radio, they don’t see you visually, it ain’t falling off. Every player got an offseason … You gotta get back to training, you have to go back and forth in the gym and get your skills up and come back.”

Although K Camp believes he still has what it takes to make hits, he hasn’t been shy about voicing his opinion when it comes to music industry politics. In January 2020, he aired his grievances with Interscope Records for not pushing his music in a series of now-deleted tweets.
“I’m sick of the shit,” he wrote at the time. “I got over 100 million streams on lottery 15+ million tik tok videos without any major label support! just me and my team! @Interscope if you don’t want to support my shit then let me go! I’ve been putting up my own money for years. At this point you are all playing with me mine.”
K Camp went on to name Interscope VP Joie Manda in his feud, claiming he was responsible for the lack of support his single “Lottery” Received.
“Lottery should be the biggest song in the world right now,” he wrote. “How many times do we have to keep putting up HITS to show you this shit? We need answers @Joeyie!”
He concluded: “I’M NOT RELEASING KISS 5 UNTIL I GET AN ANSWER! I’M NO ROOKIE IN THIS SHIT! YOU CAN’T FOOL ME LIKE THESE OTHER N-GGAS! @Joeyie.”
Since then, the relationship between K Camp and Interscope seems to have improved. He finally released KISS 5, together with Rare Family, Float and Vibe Forever all in collaboration with the brand.
