|Cam'ron: Purple Haze 2 (2019)|
It's the most unbiased and objective brand you can trust, man listen up. Cam'ron drops his project Purple Haze 2. I'm sure Dip-Set fans and fans of what he has put out in the past were anticipating this. I was too. Especially with Heatmarkerz handling the production.
It's only right Cam'ron starts Purple Haze 2 with "Toast to Me", a signature, sped up sample, from the Heatmakerz. It set's the mood. Picture me amped. He follows that up with a banger, "Medellin". "Was gonna take my ex back until I seen her with Safaree" Shots fired. Okay Cam. The smooth talking, street smart emcee is off to a good start.
Then a lot of inconsistent things started to happen. "Losin' Weight 3"? Not for me. "K.O.P." nice beat, uninspired approach to the lyrics. I Don't Know featuring Wale. Nothing special. There was a transition from "This is My City" to "Keep Rising" to the Top featuring Max B that was great. Powered by the, classic sample, Mary Jane Girls, "All Night Long". "Believe in Flee" had a nice, triumphant, and soulful hook ringing out throughout the beat that made it work well.
I gotta tell you. I was disappointed. I couldn't grade it more than aiiight. It went from promising, to generic and uninspired bars coupled with luke-warm beats that were not fit for a legend in the game like Cam'ron. He should not be chasing a young sound like he did on "Killa Bounce". Stop.
I give this a 2.5 BARS rating. 65.63%. It's aiiight.
