Cam’ron Teams Up With Hot 97 For Album Release Concert

In anticipation of his highly anticipated comeback album, Crime Pays, Cam’ron will be hitting the stage in conjunction Hot 97 at New York City’s Highline Ballroom on May 4.

Fans last saw Cam in concert in his hometown at Harlem’s legendary Apollo Theater when Jadakiss brought him out at his own show. The Yonkers MC, whose album The Last Kiss hits stores on Tuesday (April 7) could very well be one of the surprise performers to join Killa and host Funkmaster Flex onstage.

Hot 97 is currently giving out passwords for exclusive presale tickets on their website.

Crime Pays, Cam’s first album since 2006’s Killa Season, arrives in stores a week after the show on May 12. – Devin Chanda

    From the singles I’ve seen on Youtube (Including the preamble to “…Ohio”) I’m hoping this album is a storytelling piece (former crim loses job, falls back into crime…). And I hope I don’t have to import it to Aus. Took months for “The Recession” to officially drop, but I picked it up at an import store.

    Cam is still alive? I’m surprised. And even more he’s somewhat relevant? Wow! I guess it’s because NY is in a slump and only promotes artist that have untalented Crews attached to give the artist a “Boss” or gang image. But we know Cam isn’t special. I’d rather go see Nas even if he is older, Jay-Z, Red Cafe, Joell Ortiz, AZ, Most of the Unit, and the list goes on and on, Jada, Styles, etc…

    NY you just don’t have many options do you? You keep pumping up the unproven and passing on the real vets….

      @ Nate

      It ain’t just NY. A lot of people are checking for Cam.

      You can refer to WSHH and he has a vid up now with a mill plus views. Check out the comments. Dude has worldwide fans.

      I am not one of them. Just stating facts.

      This regional bias is terrible.

    Yeah whatever hoe, NY is still better than your best rapper, we invented this shit and set high standards, even our worst MC’s are better than your best , tell me I’m wrong ? and sales and numbers mean nothing dick rider, any real man knows that. NY will always be the best regardless of sales, we have the highest standards and still run the game, all the top dogs are still NYC bitches.

    “In anticipation of his highly anticipated comeback album”

    lol.

  • stoneyisland

    What the ? says: even our worst MC’s are better than your best , tell me I’m wrong ? and sales and numbers mean nothing dick rider, any real man knows that.

    ***********************************************
    NYC must have a new flavored crack cocaine, because my man is straight flipping the fuck out! sales and numbers dont mean anything????? how in the fuck do you think successful rappers make money? you mean to say sales had nothing to do with Bad Boy selling damn near 100 million records? come on homey that shit sound retarded.

  • stoneyisland

    NY is so despearte to reclaim this thing called hip hop that alot of folks are just reaching for any and every rapper with a demo. The fucked up thing is the world knows NY has some of the all time greatest rappers but does NYC really wanan hitch it’s wagon on a pink fur coat wearing nigga who hasnt had a hit in 5 years? I mean is THIS how NYC wants to represented? Camron? Dipshit? Papoose??? Come NYC step up your game, you owe the world that. If you want to remain the Mecca of all things hip hop, stop hating nigga in the south and make good music, all the rest of that eats coast, west coast, dirty south shit is just an excuse. Instead of pushing Camron as the savior of hip hop try prmoting a real Mc, like Talib, or Masta Ace or Q-tip………

  • What the ?

    We always got a new flavor, anyway.

    O.K. dunny, I admit I was a little harsh, but the truth is NY rappers have a higher standard. We invented this shit, and we will aleways have the most skilled MC’s period. Our worst MC’s are similar to any other states best MC’s but if your from NY you get put in a separate category because everyone compares you too Biggie, JZ, Big Pun , Big L, Em and Nas ect.. all the lyrical monsters. I’m a realist in real life, this is just how it is. I’m not sulking just spiting the truth.

    And yes dick riders, numbers mean nothing. How could you not understand that ? MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice sold the most ever ? can you not see the logic ? popular doesn’t mean the best.
