2 of the albums I REALLY enjoyed during this past decade...
Cam making a "Comeback" of sorts was REALLY needed... Ma$e retired, Big L passed, McGruff disapeared (and reapeared breifly on this joint), Black Rob & G Dep were NOWHERE to be found... Cam was the ONLY N hold it down for uptown (unless you count the members of Can Ox)...
After making a breif appearence on SDE, Santana really got a chance to do his thing on this joint, "Moving Weight" is flat out DANGEROUS... One of the BEST Cam songs. Of course there are the 2 SMASH hits "Oh Boy" & "Hey Ma"... But there some other gems on this joint, specifically "Come Home With Me" & "Welcome To New York City" which features Steadman.
"Daydreaming" was a DOPE record, never really took off @ the radio the way the first 2 singles did, but hey...
Its a few other joints but nothin really to write home about...
- Pitchfork Media (8.7/10) link
- Stylus Magazine (B+) link
After waiting almost 2 years the joint FINALLY came out, just as the Roc was goin through some of the early stages of the break up... There wasn't really much marketing because of the HUGE gap between the singles that dropped early when it was supposed to come out, and Cam distancing himself from Roc A Fella... They were able to squeeze in 2 vid later tho...
The Diplomat WAVE was on 7.5 when this joint dropped, it was a year and a half after the relase of Diplomatic Immunity & Juelz debut, about 6 months after Jim Jones' debut... The General of Diplomats returned with Purple Haze.
It features some of Cam's STRONGEST material, the random flow is in full swing, but he makes sense the majority of the time so its coo... "Get Down" is one of his REALIST records to date... "Killa Cam" is just DANGEROUS... The 2nd verse is CLASSIC (Some Harlem !$%@)... The Callab with Kanye is genuis, Cam's flow on there is flawless...
Also gems like "Soap Opera" & "Bubble Music" which are BEYOND dope... After those there are a few random songs that are hit or miss (mostly miss)... "Dip Set Forever" is another joint produced by Kanye which is one of my FAV Cam joints of all time
There a few RANDOM tracks on here that more or less SUCK BALLS
"Hey Lady" (even tho it's funny)
