Song: Let’s Talk About [ft. Jadakiss]
Artist: Cam’ron
Album: Crime Pays
Label: Asylum Records
Producer: unknown
Notes: none
Analysis: Cam’ron’s comeback has been unraveling pretty big this year, and ‘Let’s Talk About’ might be the biggest track we’ve heard so far off of Crime Pays. Cam makes good use of the same sample that Black Milk utilized (and absolutely destroyed) on ‘Losing Out’ with Royce da 5’9″ last year, and calls in a favor from fellow NY icon Jadakiss for some guest rhymes. At a more slowed-down tempo than Black Milk’s monster, ‘Let’s Talk About’ is reminiscent of Come Home With Me-era Cam’ron – think in the same lane as his ‘Welcome to New York City’ collabo with Jay-Z – before the whole Dipset phenomenon took off and when he was just a hit-making role player at Roc-A-Fella. Cam’ron has been turned on by his own crew and put on the shelf for about three years almost solely because of 50 Cent’s relentlessness, but these setbacks have turned him into an underdog again. Everybody’s rooting for Cam to succeed, and he’s living up to his “hot summer” promise, although two years later, by making some of the best music of his career.
