专辑介绍

Released within months of Jim Jones´ On My Way to Church, the second volume of the Diplomats´ Diplomatic Immunity, and another flurry of mixtapes, Cam´ron´s fourth album is evenly divided between strong and weak tracks. This lack of quality control will both provide ammo for Diplomat haters and frustrate Diplomat supporters, even if there´s a durable 45-minute album in here somewhere. The backing track of "Girls," a feather-light translation of Cyndi Lauper´s "Just Wanna Have Fun," belongs on a teen pop record ? it´s such a folly that it makes you wonder if somebody dared Cam´ron to release it.

Released within months of Jim Jones´ On My Way to Church, the second volume of the Diplomats´ Diplomatic Immunity, and another flurry of mixtapes, Cam´ron´s fourth album is evenly divided between strong and weak tracks. This lack of quality control will both provide ammo for Diplomat haters and frustrate Diplomat supporters, even if there´s a durable 45-minute album in here somewhere. The backing track of "Girls," a feather-light translation of Cyndi Lauper´s "Just Wanna Have Fun," belongs on a teen pop record ? it´s such a folly that it makes you wonder if somebody dared Cam´ron to release it. "Harlem Streets" fares only a little better, with the theme from "Hill Street Blues" used to distracting and detracting effect ? perhaps the cues should´ve taken from Kool G Rap & DJ Polo´s "Ill Street Blues" instead. On the other side, a pair of soul-steeped productions from Kanye West and the West-inspired Pop & Versatile help prop the album back up, and Heatmakerz´s rallying "More Gangsta Music" features some of Juelz Santana´s infectious youthful energy. Though it has been two years since Cam´ron´s last solo album, there´s so much Diplomat-affiliated material stuffing the racks that even the most devoted followers must be on the verge of overdosing on the crew´s bewildering, nonsensical rhymes. "Cause I feed you well/Every sneaker, hell/You eat Louis, sh*t Gucci, breathe Chanel/Karl Lagerfeld, acting like Gargamel" wins the prize on this release. Inconsistencies and gratuitous running time be damned, a lot of rap fans will be happy just to have another Cam´ron album to devour. Fellow Diplomats JR Writer, Jim Jones, and Freeky Zekey make appearances, along with Twista and Jaheim.
