Cam'ron:Dipset King >
Before the Grammy nominated singer and actor became known as Cam'ron he was known as Cameron Giles. Cameron was born January 4, 1974 and was raised in Harlem, New York and he attended Manhattan City High School. At that same high school he met future American rappers Mase and Jim Jones. In the mid 90's with his friends Big L, Mase and his cousin Bloodshed they formed a rap group called Children of the Corn and that is where Cameron began his rapping career. But unfortunately the group disbanded due to death of two group mates. In 1997 Bloodshed was involved in a deadly car accident in 1997 and Big L later died in 1999.
After this incident Cameron continued rapping and he was later introduced to Notorious B.I. who was so amazed by his talent he introduced him to his manager. Shortly after meeting B.I.'s manager he became known as Cam'ron and signed to Rivera's Untertainment label. By the summer of 1998 he had released his first solo album titled Confessions of Fire. But just a year later in 1999 the Untertainment label collapsed and Cam'ron was then transferred to Epic Records where he achieved some recognition with his 2001 album under famed music executive Tommy Mottola. After moving on from Sony/Epic Records Cam'ron found hooking up with old childhood friend by the name of Damon Dash. Damon Dash then ended up managing him and signing him to Roc-A-Fella Records.
At this time he started Diplomant Records where he released sever Cam'ron mixtapes. One of the Cam'ron mixed tapes was titled Boss of all Bosses. Another Cam'ron mixtape that was released was a follow up to the previous one titled Boss of all Bosses 2.By the year 2002 Cam'Ron released his third and most successful album titled Come Home With Me. The album spawned his greatest hits Hey Ma and Oh Boy; both of the hit records featured Juelz Santana. After the success of his third album Cam'ron dipped his feet into an acting career when he starred in the 2002 film Paid in Full produced by Damon Dash. After the release of his debut movie he quickly went back in the studio with Damon Dash, Juelz Santana, Jim Jones, and Freekey Zeeky to record the Diplomats first album which was released in 2003. The album titled Diplomatic Immunity was certified gold almost instantly and was followed up by the second Diplomats album titled Diplomatic Immunity.
After the success of both of those albums Cam'Ron went to release his fourth Cam'ron mixtape titled Purple Haze under Def Jam/ Roc-A-Fella records. The album also reached gold status but Cam'Ron was asked to be released from his record label because he felt he wasn't receiving the proper attention. After searching for a new record label Cam'ron joined the Warner Music Group under Asylum Records in April of 2005. During this time he made his screenwriting and directorial debut shooting the direct to video move Killa Season where he also starred in the film. Once the film was completed Cam'ron went on to release two morearismixtapes camron-c-37_447 Cam'ron mixtapes Killa Season (which accompanied the film) and Crime Pays which was released in 2009. Although they sold less than his previous album they still have made an impact in the world of rap music. It was announced in April 2010 that Diplomat would be returning for a new album. He also plans on releasing more Cam'ron mixtapes in 2010 as well.
