Unable to find success through traditional means Cam’ron turning to rapping in the mid-‘90s alongside Big L, Mase, and his cousin Bloodshed. Together the group performed under the moniker Children Of The Corn before Bloodshed’s untimely death in a car accident in 1997. The same year Cam’ron was introduced by Mase to The Notorious B.I.G. and ultimately signed to Biggie’s business partner Lance “Un” Rivera’s Untertainment label. In 1998 the rapper released his debut album “Confessions of Fire” which landed at No. 6 on the Billboard 200. The album spawned the singles “3-5-7” and “Horse and Carriage”, propelling Cam’ron to national success.

Despite not achieving the success of its predecessor, Cam’ron subsequently signed with Roc-A-Fella Records in 2001, in addition to his hip-hop group The Diplomats, comprised of Cam’ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana, and Freaky Zeeky. Featuring vocal and production contributions from the likes of Jay-Z, Beanie Sigel, Just Blaze, Kanye West, and The Heatmakerz, Cam’ron third full-length album “Come Home with Me” was issued in 2002.
