On his 1999 single “Let Me Know,” Cam’ron weirdly rapped over a sample of the Monday Night Football theme. It was the first case of baffling genius in a career that has since seen many bizarrely outstanding moments, ranging from the conceptual novelty of “Oh Boy,” the assonant assholery of Purple Haze, and the TMI-induced pathos of “I.B.S.” to the everyman relatability of “I Hate My Job” and the darkly oneiric artwork of last year’s Ghetto Heaven, Vol 1. Most recently, Killa Cam has taken to wearing a cape around New York, and he’s teamed up with designer Mark McNairy to turn this reprisal of boyhood fantasy into a viable fashion statement. With almost two decades in the game, it’s safe to say that Cam’s still moving the movement. See him leap through his classic material in a single bound at Stage 48. Don’t be late.
