EDITORS’ NOTES

Along with Jay-Z’s The Black Album, Cam’ron’s 2002 album Come Home with Me helped establish the Roc-A-Fella Records aesthetic. “Hey Ma” paired a vintage soul sample with an edgy attitude, but its overall demeanor was sweet, and it ended up being a definitive song of its era. The album featured two innovative young producers in Just Blaze and Kanye West—“Dead or Alive” is one of the early exponents of Kanye’s “chipmunk soul” style—but Cam’s rapping always drives the beats, not the other way around. Heartfelt, irritable, and frequently hilarious, he remains faithful only to his own conflicted core.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Cam'ron is just absolutely great!

Cam'ron came back in the year of 2002 as part of Jay-Z's "collection." He came out with the great song Oh Boy which blew away everybody when he was beginning to fade. He consistently came out with more and more great songs, one of my favorites would be Dead or Alive and Hey Ma. Along with the guest artists this becames not only a very good cd, but one of the greatest rap/hip-hop cds ever!
