This poll question isn’t a diss at Killa in any way. It’s just today the thought crossed my mind like, “Oh yeah, Cam IS back.” You remember when most of the Hip-Hop nation was asking the question “Where’s Cam?”. Now he’s returned with his first album in three years, Crime Pays, and nothing feels different. It didn’t elevate his status. Now one is saying the words “classic” or even that Crime Pays is the best album of 2009 (Okay, maybe Cam’ron/DipSet stans). And while sales should never really equal the success of the actual music, now there are reports coming out that Crime Pays will move around 40-45k units (How many videos has Cam put out now?). Now, I’m not saying Cam’ron’s career is done; not by a long shot. Those numbers aren’t bad but it’s almost the same as Jim Jones’ last album (Pary For Reign). Maybe Eminem’s return overshadowed Crime Pays. Maybe people want the Diplomats back together. But at the end of the day: Do you really care that Cam’ron is back? You know the drill. Vote. Oh, and if you haven’t checked out King Jerm’s Crime Pays review, do that too.
