Cam’ron Returns Home Without Dipset Crew
An eager crowd of Cam’ron fans filled New York’s Highline Ballroom to witness the rapper’s first big New York show in almost three years. Unfortunately, Cam would be sans his Harlem crew Dipset. Nonetheless, the rapper, who appeared onstage after Funkmaster Flex’s hour or so long set, told the crowd that he “came here to party.” With ‘I Really Mean It’ pumping from the speakers, Cam in jeans, a whole lotta red and even more jewelry, got the party started. “I missed y’all mutha—-as, man,” Cam told his excited fans.
The rapper didn’t let the absence of his former cohorts Jim Jones, Juelz Santana, Freekey Zeekey, 40 Cal. and Hell Rell spoil the show. Cam ran through ‘The Roc (Just Fire),’ ‘Ambitionz Az a Killa,’ ‘Get Em Girls,’ ‘Hey Ma,’ ‘Oh Boy’ and ‘Touch It Or Not’ without help from the Dipset rappers featured on many of his hits before treating fans to the first performance of many of his new tracks. Cam disclosed the inspiration behind ‘I Hate My Job,’ revealing that he was seeing a girl who hated her gig. “I did this for my homegirl,” he said.
Cam’ron ran through ‘Cookin’ Up’ and ‘Get It In Ohio’ and ‘Got It For Cheap,’ all from his upcoming release ‘Crime Pays,’ before wrapping the show up with his new buzz single ‘Cookies & Apple Juice.’
‘Crime Pays’ hits stores on May 12.
