Cam’ron insists it’s all love between him and his Roc-A-Fella familia, even though they didn’t monetarily entice him to join Jay-Z and company on the recent Sprite Liquid Mix Tour. But somebody at Def Jam threw enough ducats at Cam and his Diplomat Crew to snare him for Survival of the Illest 2.
That trek, which also features Foxy Brown and N.O.R.E., starts October 11 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and runs through November, though more dates are expected to be announced.
The first Survival of the Illest in 1998 featured performers DMX, Ja Rule, Cormega, Onyx and the Def Squad.
For Cam, the Illest tour is going to make a busy month even busier. On October 25, his debut film, “Paid in Full,” is due to be excused from Hollywood purgatory and hit theaters. Three days before that the soundtrack will drop. Cam has the lead single with “Bout It, Bout … Part III,” which features Master P and Jimmy Jones.
Meanwhile, Foxy is gearing up for her own LP, Ill Na Na 2: The Fever, due November 19 (see “P. Diddy In Director’s Chair For Foxy Brown’s Ill Na Na 2“ ). The first single will be a remix of “Stylin’,” which features Loon, Baby, N.O.R.E. and Fox’s brother Gavin.
