Cam’ron is taking us back with his latest video for “U Wasn’t There.”
The clip comes after the Harlem rhymer after announced his retirement from the rap game a few years ago.
“Everybody knows the usual suspects when it comes to me, the people I rap with or the people I always shout out,” said Cam in an interview with FADER. “This is giving me a chance to shout out some of the people I never have. I feel good doing something like this. It’s kind of the story behind the story.”
In the video, the Dipset leader spits verses on his friends, lovers and his “petty cousin Joe” in a way to pay homage to the people that have been there before and during his 18-year career. To coincide with his words, he placed photos from Instagram, Twitter and his mom’s personal stash in the moving collage — his infamous pink ensembles also makes an appearance.
“Thank God for Toy Dawkins, she took care of me” he raps as a photo of he and his baby momma as young teenagers is shown.
Cam’s retirement may be underway, but he’s still going to release one more album for his loyal fans called Purple Haze 2. It’s set to be released this fall.
Throughout his career, Cam released six studio albums, nine mixtapes and countless singles. But his next move will be to get “more focused on movies and television.”
His current project will be a sequel to his 2014 Netflix effort, Percentage, which is an autobiographical sitcom.
