Cam’ron Reflects on His Harlem Roots in ‘Lean’ Video [WATCH]
In the video, the Dipset leader reflects on his Harlem roots as recalls the street hustlers that hugged the block and some of his beloved homies that are no longer here with us.
“So the streets honor me / Humbled, believe I’m honored (yes I am) / I grabbed my momma I’m headed to a different genre / They couldn’t understand me now, I find it ironic / I grew up with Big L / All I knew is ebonics,” raps Cam over a piano-driven rendition of Bill Withers’ classic song, “Lean On Me.”
Throughout the video a children’s choir sing the endearing words, “Lean on me / When you’re not strong / I’ll be your friend / I’ll help you carry on / For it won’t be long before I need somebody to lean on.”
