Today In Hip Hop History: Cam’Ron Drops His ‘Purple Haze’ Album 14 Years Ago

On this date in 2004, Cam’Ron released his fourth solo album entitled ‘Purple Haze’ released on the Diplomats, Roc-A-Fella and Def Jam imprints.

This was the first solo album from the Dipset capo following the Dipset craze, where he switched from his obsession with the color pink to the more regal purple. Songs such as the anthemic “Down And Out” featuring a fairly new artist named Kanye West and Syleena Johnson, “Bubble Music” and “Adrenaline” featuring Twista and Psycho Drama help to popularize the highly anticipated album that took about a year to be released following several label delays during the Roc-A-Fella break up.

The album was propelled by samples from old soul and reggae music, which only helped to add to the LP’s popularity.

Salute to Cam, Dipset and everyone involved with this timeless Hip Hop gem!

The Diplomats Tell Hilarious Story About Laurence Fishburne Encounter: ‘We Don’t Give a Fuck About You!’

Respectfully one of the most influential groups throughout Hip-Hop history, the Diplomats affectionately known as Dipset, are on the verge of making a noisy comeback and the collective’s distinguished members are taking up the surface big time. The group recently sat down with Billboard to discuss the Diplomats’ official comeback and amid the dialogue described a comical airport encounter with actor Laurence Fishburne which involves a couple of ‘eff yous,” making the story a certified Dipset tale.

“We see him in the airport. My first album’s not out or nothing; we’re just on a promo tour for my first album,” said Cam’ron. ‘Jim is like, “There go Laurence Fishburne!’ Jim had done a couple scenes on New York Undercover and shit, so Jim had seen him somewhere else like Toys R’ Us or some shit—and he was like, ‘If you call him Larry Fishburne, he loses his mind!’ Like we’re just sitting there chilling in the airport waiting for our flight and Jim tells us this.”

According to Jones, he had previously witnessed The Matrix actor go ballistic on someone who called him Larry inside of a Toys R Us on a Christmas day. During this encounter, it was their close buddy Fat Shawn, who Cam’ron notes passed away just two months ago, that turned it up on Fishburne by calling him by his disfavored moniker.

“He’s like, ‘I said, ‘Hello, Larry!’ But you gotta realize…we’re not no celebrities! We’re just some guys trying to get a record out, so we’re like, “Oh shit! Fucking Laurence Fishburne!’,” Cam’ron recalled. ‘So we’re just in awe that’s Larry! So listen though, he comes back and sits down with us! Like, ‘Yo, why you keep calling me Larry?’ And n—-s is like what! And this n—a Shawn is like, ‘our mother named you Larry, I’m calling you Larry!’ N—a pulls out his I.D. like, ‘What does this say?!’ We’re like, ‘Get ‘em, Larry! Get ‘em!”

After trying to convince Fishburne of their brewing prominence in entertainment with Jim JonesNew York Undercover gig and the coming drop of Cam’ron’s solo debut, the “Dipset Anthem” spitters got fed up after he rejected their efforts and sent the legendary actor into the fields of forget-yous.

“And Jim is like, ‘Yo, we’re trying to get on! We got the album coming out! I’m on New York Undercover!’ He’s like, ‘I’m not helping y’all!’ We’re like, ‘Yo Laurence, don’t pay that nigga no mind! That n—a’s stupid, man!’ He’s like, ‘I need to know what’s going on with y’all.’ I’m like, ‘Yo, fuck him! My man on New York Undercover, I got the album…’ He like, ‘Look man, I’m not helping y’all!’ So then it got to the point where I’m like, ‘Yo you know what? Fuck you, my n—a!’

Surprisingly for the Diplomats, the School Daze actor ended up becoming a fan of the Harlem spitters weathered raps years after their pre-famed encounter. Cam’ron views the moment as a lesson about memory, ultimately highlighting the power behind organically memorable moments.

“What’s crazy is, he probably just thought we were some ignorant n—-s who don’t know who we is. Because let’s say about 4-5 years later, my friend James is driving my pink Range Rover and Laurence Fishburne pulls up next to him and he’s like, “Hey, is that Cam’ron’s car?” He’s like, “Yeah, yeah!” He’s like, “Yo, tell him I’m a big fan! I fuck with him!” So James called me and he’s like, “Yo, Laurence Fishburne just pulled up to the car and said he loves your shit!” And I’m like, “See he don’t even know that that was us!”

Now the class act Harlem rap group is preparing for their official comeback album Diplomatic Immunity 3, which will reportedly come with a visual project between a documentary and biopic. The uncertainty is based on Dipset’s lengthy 21-year history and the desire to tell the tale in its full context. According to Cam, they are seeking the most financially wise direction to take the story of the Diplomats, but overall want the tale to make a similar and bigger impact than that of BET’s “The New Edition Story”. Well, on a bigger scale, profiling the story of Harlem’s most influential rap group will help raise awareness towards the importance of knowing hip-hop history.

Cam’ron’s Mom Can’t Believe NY Media’s Covering Vets Upset W/ Killa

Cam'ron Pic

New York rapper Cam’ron‘s mom really can’t believe some outrageous coverage her mini-me is receiving. Mom’ron went to social media this week to single out the New York Post for penning an article about war veterans having issues with the Diplomats.

Fredericka Giles hopped on Instagram Wednesday (November 28) to demand a few answers.

This week, the New York Post ran a story about Dipset reuniting last weekend at The Apollo dressed in military gear.

Cam’ron and Jim Jones’ group — celebrating the release of its first album in 14 years — took the stage to perform “I’m Ready” in the offending outfits. When word reached vets, many were not amused. Said an insider, “I get performance art, and if you want to wear camo or a [costume] uniform, I have no problem. But if you’re wearing medals and ribbons, it’s crossing a line.” (Page Six)
