Cam’ron Announces New Crew The U.N., Dipset West
Harlem rapper Cam’ron has a new crew. Having left Dipset after feuding with co-founder Jim Jones, Cam recently released his first new album in three years, ‘Crime Pays‘ and has just announced his new group, The U.N., and subdivision Dipset West.
“When we started Dipset, it was more than just a crew, it was a movement. The U.N. is a continuation of that movement,” Cam said in a recent press release. “Our new roster: Charlie Clips, Byrd Lady, Vado, Fly Boyz, Begetz and Young Hustle were all selected by me and my business partner, Omar ‘Iceman’ Sharif. He has made his name in the music and film industries brokering and securing multi-million dollar deals, merging hip-hop with Hollywood. His experience is exactly what we need to make strategic connections at the next level.”
In a recent interview with The Boombox, Cam announced plans to release several film projects, including a follow-up to his highly popular 2006 film ‘Killa Season,’ which he penned and directed. He expanded on those projects in the press release, saying, “We got a movie coming out called ‘The Bakery’ and then we’ll drop the second installment of ‘Killa Season.’”
Cam is also considering the release of a bio-pic on convicted racketeer ‘Guy Fischer,’ former member of The Council, an infamous organized crime syndicate which controlled the heroin traffic in Harlem in the 70′s and early 80′s.
Though Cam is focused on building his new brand and releasing film projects, he’s still planning a new solo album in the coming year.
“In between films, we’ll keep the streets hot with ‘The Gangsta Grillz Mixtape’ and we’ll most likely release Vado’s album immediately after. Vado got the streets on smash, and in Harlem, he’s got an unbelievable buzz. Everybody in Harlem already knows what it is,” expresses Cam’ron. “Between the films and the music coming soon on U.N. and Dipset West, we gonna keep the ‘hood in a frenzy!”
We’re still not sure we understand what Dipset West is, but we got love for Killa Cam.
