Speaking on a podcast, Jim Jones who feigned reluctance to talk about the events finally explained to the guys that it was actually Jay-Z who made the first move ahead of the re-opening of the Webstall Hall.
He said: “Oh yeah, it was definitely a moment. I got a call saying Jay about to do a special B-side concert. And I’m like ‘Cool, can I get some tickets? What’s up?'” he said before everyone laughed. “I thought that was the call that he was pulling up. They like, ‘He wants to perform ‘Welcome to New York City.'”
Jim Jones further explained his reluctance to even consider doing the joint performance because Cam’ron might not find it funny and he wasn’t exactly sure how to broach it..
“They asked me, and now I’m like ‘Come on, don’t do this to me,'” he said. “Why y’all putting me under this one? Like I’m just listening and in my mind, I’m like f*ck it. I’m just asking a question [to Cam’ron]. He’s going to say ‘Yeah’ or he’s going to say ‘No’.
Eventually though, he called up Cam’ron and the latter agreed to it without even putting up a fight which surprised him. Well, the rest is history and fans will be happy they agreed to do the “Welcome to New York” song together because it was definitely a performance for the history books.
