In the early 2000s, Cam and his Diplomats were ruling New York, and Purple Haze undeniably took them to higher heights. Among numerous producers in his stable, relative newcomer Kanye West brings the heat twice here, with the single “Down & Out” (with Kanye pulling double duty, also rocking the mic) and “Dip-Set Forever.” Elsewhere, Cam’s Diplomats crew swarm to support, on “Hey Lady” (with
Freekey Zekey) and the more minimal, N.W.A. tribute “The Dope Man,” with Jim Jones. “Bubble Music” is a Cam standalone, with some reggae-tinged chops that change the pace a bit. Purple Haze was another Diplomats volley that kept their flame burning hot, ruling the streets of NYC and far beyond. Presented here as a 2-LP on appropriate purple vinyl, don’t miss out on your chance to revisit and rock to one of the era’s most memorable platters.
