If you've ever had trouble taking Cam'ron seriously, that's probably because Cam'ron doesn't take Cam'ron that seriously. Solo and with the Diplomats, the Harlem MC is more enthralled by the absurd potentialities of language - runaway onomatopoeia, outrageous metaphors - than projecting the gruff surliness endemic to hip-hop. Increasingly, though Cam wants for laurels upon which to rest: his heyday is 8-10 years in the rearview, and while he can still draw a crowd, his legend is fading. In 2014, rap heads pose that now-perennial, almost rhetorical question: can Killa re-up, for real? We'll see.
