I like the fact that he did songs with Lil B and Riff Raff before it was all trendy and shit more than I like his actual raps, even though he can actually rap.

Skip those, and his youtube channel will keep you satisfied throughout, especially when his skits and sketches tackles life’s simple pleasures, like food, or even better, wine.

The BoomBox: I heard you’re working on a sitcom.

Cam: We haven’t come up with a title for the sitcom, but it’s basically like a black ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm,’ basically based upon the last year or two of my life. How my girl wanted me to go do an album with my mom and you know, I just want to sit around and sell weed basically, and make about $60.00 a week and be happy with it, cause I get a rush just from sellin’ it. So we got a bunch of situations around it. It’s real comical though, it isn’t serious at all.

The BoomBox: So you’re a fan of ‘Curb.’

Cam: Oh, I’m a big fan. I’m a big Larry David fan and all…that’s like the only person I want to meet in the world. Besides anybody, it’s nobody else in the world I want to meet but Larry David.

Få rappare bör syssla med film. Cam’ron är definitivt en av dem.

Medan vi väntar på Cousin Bang så kollar vi på Paid In Full igen.

Man kanske borde ta sig i kragen och börja plöja Curb Your Enthusiasm

Funny backstage clip


In Chicago, 1992, he anti-performs his act. He had sort of a dada quality to him live.

Put another way, he had balls. Balls to go against the government, the entertainment world, the mentality of the place where he came from, the audience, and consensus reality itself. (“It’s just a ride” was his mantra, his radical view of reality.) He went out on the high and risky balancing act between politics and humor armed to the teeth, and came off funnier than any other comedian.

Sometimes, laughing at the world is the only way to maintain your sanity. Humor is the superior weapon for shattering the shimmering aura of self-righteousness surrounding all the world’s biggest hypocritical assholes. Also, it is the preferred power tool for puncturing public lies.

Even though he left us way too early (cancer, at only 33 years old), we can be grateful that his work is still among us. It is indeed needed, especially these days when all the comedy we get is either all fart jokes, or racial stereotypes (Dave Chapelle, Ice Cube, and so on). I can spend hours on youtube, digesting all the great  material related to him that people have uploaded. As a matter of fact, I’m about to do that right now. If there existed a better way to blow away them cobwebs in your cranium, it would surely be illegal.
