Dame Dash appeared in an interview and recalled the untold story behind the near-fatal attack on Dipset’s Cam’ron in 2005 in Washington, DC. While being interviewed on Showtime’s “All the Smoke podcast, Dame revealed that Cam’ron was shot in 2005 in our nation’s capital because of his role of “Rico” which was a character based […]
On this date in 2003, Cam’ron’s crew from Harlem, The Diplomats, dropped their debut album Diplomatic Immunity on the Roc A Fella Records/Def Jam imprint during the pivotal time when Dame Dash appointed Cam’ron as the President of Roc-A-Fella Records.
Coming on the heels of the release of Cam’s Come Home With Me LP, Diplomatic Immunity introduced the entire Dipset squad, including Juelz Santana, Jim Jones, Freekey Zeekey, Un Kasa, and Hell Rell. With production from the likes of Heatmakerz, DR Period, and a then virtually unknown Kanye West, the trailblazing sound of old soul samples pushed Dipset to the forefront of the creative curve of Hip Hop, which offered the Blood-affiliated crew from Uptown an almost cult-like following. Rell was incarcerated by the time the album was available for purchase.
The album was saturated with longstanding hits such as “I Really Mean It,” the infectious “Dipset Anthem,” the female-friendly “Hey Ma,” and the Master P assisted “Bout It Bout It…Part I “. Commercially, the album was considered average, debuting at #8 on the Billboard 200 and selling 92,000 copies in its first week, but the album was certified Gold by the RIAA in 2005.
Salute to Cam, Juelz on the inside, Jim Jones, Freekey, and Hell Rell for this classic piece of Hip Hop history!
On this date in 1976, rapper, actor, and entrepreneur Cameron Giles, also known as Cam’ron, was born in New York City.
Following the break up of Harlem-based group Children Of The Corn, Cam’ron and childhood friend Mason Betha embarked on solo careers, with Cam releasing his debut solo album Confessions Of Fire. At the same time,Mase put out the platinum-selling Bad Boy powered Harlem World LP.
In 2001, Cam’s career took a sharp turn when he signed with Roc-A-Fella Records and released his third and best-received album, Come Home With Me. Following the album’s success, Cam debuted his talents as an actor and screenwriter when he appeared in the Roc-A-Fella Films Paid In Full, Paper Soldiers, Death Of A Dynasty, and State Property 2.
Currently, Cam is working on the second installment of his Purple Haze series while still working on other solo and Dipset endeavors.
2022 has already shown that keeping the right people around you will get you where you need to go and that’s exactly what Dipset general Cam’Ron and his homie Suga Dugga showed and proved on New Year’s Day.
In a dope HNY Instagram post, Suga showed his appreciation to Killa for getting him in the game and making him a millionaire by giving him a Diplomats shoebox filled with $100 bills, totaling $250,000. Dugga captioned the post, “I told y’all no cap my brother @mr_camron made me millionaire it feel good to start the new year the right way I could have got u the 2022 Mercedes Maybach but they said I would not have it on time for new year cash is better 250,000$ in a Sneaker box.”
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!
