About the Artist
You would think that after (1) being shot during an attempted car-jacking last year and (2) deciding to publicly attack Jay-Z on radio and in a song, Cam'Ron's Killa Season would be a tidal force of passion and/or venom. Instead, it sounds much like his last album, 2004's Purple Haze--perhaps too much. Killa Season's beats are surprisingly dull and anemic, using many of the same musical formulas from Haze, except now the sped-up soul samples and dramatic orchestral flourishes sound like retreads. The album's main saving grace is Cam'Ron himself. Even over tepid tracks, Cam still distinguishes himself as an entertaining lyricist, able to execute the most outrageous of boasts---whether crime, sex or style-related---with a deceptively simple flow that unfolds into a complex set of wordplay that would impress most linguists. It's just too bad this sounds more like a B-grade mix-CD than the tour de force Cam was prepping everyone for. --Oliver Wang

Compared to “Purple Haze,” this album boasts more gritty lyrics and aggressive street cuts. Cam solidifies himself as Harlem’s illest MC. He makes it well known that he’s a Harlem hustler who’s aiming for the crown of New York’s best rapper. Cam aims for the top spot by taking shots at Jay-Z on “You Gotta Love It.” The beat is a banger and Max B’s hook adds fuel to the fire as Cam’ron disrespects the Brooklyn MC and samples Beyonce’s vocals at the end of the track, utter savageness.
The raunchy lead single “Touch It Or Not,” features Lil Wayne as Cam exhibit’s his street flow and slick metaphors. On the “Get Em Daddy (Remix),” the rest of the Dipset crew get a chance to shine including Jim Jones, Hell Rell, and JR Writer. The last song “Love My Life” is my favorite track off the album and it shows a more subtle side of Cam as he mentions family members and reminisces memorable moments of his life growing up.
Overall, the album signifies Cam’ron fully establishing himself as a complete MC as well as making it clear that the Diplomats are the top group in the rap game. The album is a multidimensional work of art as it features both club bangers as well as street anthems for every Dipset/Cam’Ron fan.
