Cam'Ron is wack. That is all.

pfan, also make sure to grab Illmatic by Nas. It's his debut album, and singlehandedly responsible for turning me from a casual hip hop fan into a diehard. Some other recommendations:

Jay-Z - Reasonable Doubt
Notorious B.I.G. - Ready to Die
Wu-Tang Clan - Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
Black Moon - Enta Da Stage
Black Star - Mos Def and Talib Kweli Are...
Method Man & Redman - Blackout!
Eric B. & Rakim - Follow the Leader
Tupac - All Eyez on Me
Common - Like Water for Chocolate
Dr. Dre - The Chronic
Gang Starr - Hard to Earn
Boogie Down Productions - Criminal Minded
Binary Star - Masters of the Universe

Combined with laz's suggestions, you have a good list of essential hip hop albums here. You could start with any of these.

Illmatic is nasty-good. Listened to it quite a bit, last week.

Still, Cam is the King of Harlem (ie, all Creation), and you just can't mess with them shits. Ain't nobody else street enough to shoot hisself in the arm just to lend credibility to his made-up story of getting carjacked...while driving a purple Lamborghini around D.C..

Seriously, though, that new mixtape shouldn't be nearly as GREAT as it is. Really surprisingly genius stuff, on the mo'fucker. I was about as amped for Killa Season as is possible, but felt really let down. "I.B.S." notwithstanding, of course. This new tape puts the strong-but-overlong Public Enemy #1 one to shame, and I'm officially re-stoked for Crime Pays. Purple Haze is so good that it hurts, and I'd like to see Killa back at that level of ballerosity.

Those are definitely essentials. I'd also get Mos Def's Black on Both Sides.


IYS, funny you mention "I.B.S."...it's pretty much the only thing by Cam'Ron that I can stand.

You cannot argue with this song. Or with his verses, which are fucking sick!

YouTube - Cam'Ron Ft. Kanye West - Down And Out & Get Em Daddy

Sake on a Suzuki in Osaka Bay. Amazing. This is the schtick that Weezy has been imitating to great success, for the last few years. I still remember when he was just a Cam protege...

Very versatile and, again, fucking insane, here. Yet another good insight into from where Weezy gets his (comparatively watered-down) shit:

YouTube - Cam'ron - Just Us

"My crew ain't nothin' but candles--yeah, we sittin' on cake."

"But I seen Brenda,
143rd and Lennox--
dirty kitchen.
Back of the bird behind.
You heard me, hon--
she 31.
Gave her a sanchez.
Yes, a dirty one."

There were some buck nasty verses on that Madvillain record. I didn't think that it cohered, all that way, but when it worked...fuck me, it was AMAZING.

Also, I'm not sure it's possible to enjoy rap and not like this song:

YouTube - Cam'ron Girls/Family Ties

Dipset, bitch.
