Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home, but we need your help to make it great. Please subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

Cam’ron’s life and career are rather unique. Raised in Harlem, New York, Cam’ divided his interests between basketball, the streets, and Hip-Hop. Over time, the Diplomats general would work with Big L, Ma$e, and Bloodshed (as Children Of The Corn) before his days signed to Untertainment/Epic Records. In the 1990s, Cam’ was a hungry Rap sensation—appearing on Stretch & Bobbito’s esteemed radio show. In the 2000s, he launched Dipset as a brand that captivated the Rap industry, and branded itself near the top.

In “U Wasn’t There,” Cam’ron goes all the way back. The MC uses a slow flow to trace his upbringing, his family, his early MC days, and his hustling exploits. Figures such as Big L, Ma$e, Huddy, Lance “Un” Rivera, Jacob York, and Cam’s purple Lamborghini and pink Range Rover are all featured in the photo stash—many accompanied by Killa Cam. This soulful, high-pitched beat calls back to the Just Blaze-esque sound of his Roc-A-Fella dominance.
