Gonna be fire
This going to be good
Listen to Cam'ron's New Mixtape 'The Program'
Comes at Ye on Coleslaw
Cam is Cam which is good, but some of these tracks desperately need better production
Yeah after 1000 Miles, Lean and Dime After Time I was expecting a lot better. Him going over My Block is dope as hell, though
Yeah I’d agree but even that track, among others (“Lean”, “Kiss Myself”) feel like rough drafts from a production standpoint. “U Wasn’t There” is probably my favorite track other than the intro track.
Someone get this man in the studio with No ID or...someone really. I have no clue what happened to Harry Fraud but him plus Cam would be a great project
Yeah I mean it sounds like an old school street mixtape. Throw some solid verses over eclectic songs and release it. Nowadays we're so used to a mixtape basically being an album.
Never listened to cam’ron but I downloaded this last night. Is this a good intro to his stuff?
No. Get Purple Haze immediately
I wish he'd stop saying ***got
What track? Totally missed that but I did hear a “no homo” in there
I don't even remember, it's in the background of one song at least. DIA maybe?
Ah...disappointed but not surprised
I was just about to make a thread for it. This "similar threads" feature is really good.
Anyway, I really like this tape, especially It's Killa, Lean ("I share my wealth, humble beginnings, hunger strangled us / Pops had a choice, me and drugs, he chose angel dust"), Chop It Up, Kiss Myself, Uwasntthere. I agree that it isn't very polished, but mixtapes being polished is a comparatively new thing, like OhTheWater said. A lot of mixtapes that aren't by Chance or whatever still aren't very polished, so I'm still kind of used to it. I would like this more if it was, but it's fine. At this point I assume he isn't interested in making a lot of polished songs.
10,000 Miles is really missing from this, it's one of my most listened to songs of the year.
I'd start with Come Home With Me (the most accessible album and also my favorite) and Diplomatic Immunity (the Diplomats classic).
Does he have a Spacey line on Hello?
I think so? I keep hearing "space me" but Spacey makes more sense. Don Q is really good on that song.
I’m not convinced that Don Q isn’t just Jim Jones under a different pseudonym
Ok I really like “Chop It Up”
Jim Jones = underrated
This is available for free via DatPiff and so on but it's also for sale on iTunes. Do you know if there is a difference?
I listened to it in the car today, I can recommend it, I like it even more now
