Video: Cam’ron Thought About Retiring From Rap

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009

File Under: WTF Y?!?!

One thing Cam’ron said he doesn’t know how to do is fall back. Killa told us that even before his three-year hiatus — during which he spent a significant amount of time taking care of his mother who had three strokes — he contemplated retiring from rap.

“It was a time when I was thinking about that, before my moms got sick,” Cam admitted. “I was like, ‘All right, I got everybody off the ground. I kinda been doing this for a while. Let me fall back and maybe look into some other things.’ ”

Cam said he couldn’t stop coming up with lines. “During that time period, I’d be somewhere eating, thinking of some rhymes. Or I’d be in my living room, thinking of some rhymes. I can’t stop even if I wanted to stop,” he explained. “It doesn’t matter where I’m at — if I’m somewhere sitting still for more than an hour, rhymes start popping in my head. … It’s just kinda instilled in me.”

Cam drops his long-overdue Crime Pays on Tuesday, and when he spoke with us, he came on the humble. Homie is genuinely glad to be back.

“I’m just privileged to still be around,” he said. “You got people that come in, one album, two albums, and they’re gone. A lot of people couldn’t take the break I took and come back into the game and people be checking for them. People would be like, ‘F— him.’ That’s the one thing I did realize taking this break, how much love I got. When you constantly working, working, you don’t really get to appreciate the fans and people loving your stuff. Places I went to where I didn’t even know people listen to rap, there were [fans] that would be like, ‘Please come back.’ ”

Skitzo and AraabMuzik did the majority of the beats, and Killa rocked most of the records with no guest rappers. Everyone talks about the reunion of Cam and the Dipset, but can we get some Killa over Just Blaze and Kanye beats again?

^ This.

Props to MTV News.

Friday, May 1st, 2009

This shit right here is Never Scared Black Republican 2.0. Nah Right was created 4 years ago (this month) so that maybe one day, these two could get together and collaborate on precisely this song for this exact album. You see what wishful thinking brings you? It was written…

Video: Cam’Ron Interview w/ The Life Files

Saturday, March 14th, 2009

I understand he had some words for Jimmy, Juelz, Hell Rell & JR Writer. Back to the old Cam…

Cam’ron talks about everything from what happened to Sizzurp, the status of his relationship with Jim Jones and Juelz Santana, how he beat the recession, his feelings on Jay-Z’s comments on the song “Dig A Hole” and his new album Crime Pays which happens to be coming out just in time to capitalize off the media storm.

JD Anderson: I read you had a phone call with Jim and now he’s denying it?
Cam: Who’s that?
JD: Jim Jones, formerly of the Diplomats.
Cam: *shakes head* I have that Jason Bourne shit in me. I’m off sometimes, I ain’t even sure what you’re talking about.

As you can see, Cam is in his lawn chair pose, he also discusses Bill O’Reilly & Max B. Definitely one of the more entertaining interviews of of all the ones he’s done lately. Still waiting on part 3 from Miss Info.
