Almost three years since the release of his last album, 2019’s “Purple Haze 2,” Cam’ron joined forces with Canadian deejay and producer A-Trak for his new single “All I Really Wanted.”
The A-Trak, Beautiful Lou, and G Koop-produced track focused on how Cam’Ron rose to his superstardom from getting buckets in high school and transitioning to the street game. When the female vocalist sings, “All I really wanted…,” Cam replies back, “…money, cars, clothes, hood respect” and other lines that reflect his past desires throughout the song.
If you’re not knowledgeable about the story of Cam’ron, this is a captivating introduction to the emcee’s story of having the cards stacked against him in Harlem to overcome the odds as a worldwide Rap star.
“All I Really Wanted” embodies classic East Coast Hip-Hop without frills and combines the legacies of Dipset, Fool’s Gold, and Damon Dash. This is the first single for the duo’s collaborative “U Wasn’t There,” which is scheduled to drop on Sept. 23. The pair previously linked up on “Dipshits,” Cam’s 2014 collaboration with Juelz Santana for their then project called “Federal Reserve.”
