Purple Haze

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap; Lead Performer: Cam'ron; Producer (group): Roc-A-Fella; Status: In Season

Cam’ron’s world — a pink-and-purple paradise teeming with loose women and drug money — is a sinfully great place to visit on Purple Haze. The beats (courtesy of Kanye, among others) are as hyperkinetic as the humor is twisted: Cam likens himself to ”the plant in Little Shop of Horrors” at one point. And the ridiculous laughs duly complement an off-the-charts arrogance that makes Jay-Z seem bashful. Once again, Cam proves why he is hip-hop’s best guilty pleasure.
