13-years ago today, Dipset rapper Cam’Ron released his classic Killa Season album.
It’s still considered a masterpiece till this day and this is why.
Killa Season was a soundtrack that definitely heated up the streets. The project featured a diss track against NY native rapper Jay Z.
In “You Got To Love It,” the Harlem bar-spitta insinuates he had relations with Beyoncè. He also blamed Hov for preventing him from taking the VP job at Roc-A-Fella. In the song, Killa Cam also said Jay Z is the reason he got shot in D.C back in 2005. Cam alleges the gunman through up the dynasty sign and fled the scene.
The project also featured notable productions from the Heatmakers, Frank Nitti, and the Alchemist. It had guest appearances from Lil Wayne, Nicole Wray, Juelz Santana, Max B, Mo’Money, Hell Rell, 40 Cal, J.R Writer, and Jim Jones.
Some of the major hits included “Wet Wipes,” “Touch It Or Not,” “Love My Life,” “Do Ya Thing (Remix),” and “You Gotta Love It” of course.
The album went platinum and it changed the game for hip hop and film. Cam’Ron also wrote, directed, and released a movie with the same title as the album, Killa Season. Cam’Ron starred as a man named Flea who ran the streets. It was a fictional film but it did mirror a lot of Cam’s life.
It was a true “hood movie” that didn’t have the best production, but it had the streets talking!
