Hip-hop star Cam'ron is desperate for controversial singer R Kelly to pay him back, so they can patch up their friendship and perform together.

The HEY MA rapper insists the I BELIEVE I CAN FLY star would be much better to collaborate with than troubled singer Michael Jackson, but refuses to discuss the musical partnership with Kelly until he repays a large loan.

He says, "I would pick R Kelly because I can relate to him more. Michael Jackson is real scary and got too much extra security. R Kelly's more hood, I can relate to him more. I don't really mess with him now though because he owes me some money."
