(AllHipHop News) Cam’ron was born and bred from a subsection of the heart of American capitalism, he’s inclined towards hustling. In a recent interview with Mass Appeal, Cam’ron revealed how he almost owned his own color, making his own reality show and more.
Ever since the world at large saw Cam’ron don pink in his 2002 “Hey Ma” music video, he he has been associated with the color. During a 2004 interview with The New York Times, Cam’ron stated he was planning on the next color to showcase but was not “not going to tell anybody until I patent it.” While he does not explicitly state of his dealings with Crayola were in connection to his comments in the interview, but during his Mass Appeal interview, he does allude to a deal with Crayola that went bad:
The only thing that became a possibility -— but we didn’t follow through on — is they were thinking about doing a Cam’ron pink with Crayola.
Never one to let one bad business deal keep him down, Cam’ron has been involved in a number of different ventures this past year. From his own line of Dipset Capes to his own brand of socks, Cam’ron has been d During an interview with Miss Info in October of last year, Cam spoke on releasing a viral comedy series First of The Month from January to June. While that has not materialized, Cam’ron reveals in the Mass Appeal interview that he is set to start the series soon:
I’ve been working on this thing called “The First of the Month.” I’m putting out an EP every month with a 30-minute episode so you’re not waiting a year or more for the next album.
Cam’ron and his girlfriend JuJu have been flooding people’s Instagram feeds to the point that there’s developing requests for the pair to do a reality TV show. According to Cam, he’s open to the possibility, as long as the money is proportionate to the star they believe they are getting:
They’ll offer you, in the beginning, $15,000 an episode or some people could go up to $100,000 and in your fourth or fifth season be getting a million or two million per season. But, and I’m not comparing myself to anybody whatsoever, Viacom is getting all this money from all these people. Like they offered Kim and Kanye 40 million for a reality show, so you’re gonna offer me a hundred thousand? Nah, that math ain’t even close.
