Cam’ron proclaimed himself the Boss of all Bosses with the title of his 2009 mixtape, and five years later he’s flexing some mafia-esque power, with his new video, “Funeral.”
“I’m at my man funeral, lookin’ at his girl cry/ Preacher sayin’ he a good man, man that’s a f–kin’ lie,” Cam raps to open the song, released on Thursday (June 26). He then goes on to tell the story of the deceased, a former friend who flipped and cooperated with law enforcement.
“For two years he wore a wire, so we all here today,” Cam laments later in the video, directed by BLACKPRO, which uses primarily black-and-while to tell the track’s story.
Cam felt crossed, and he had to get his boss on: “We gon’ have to kill him, yo/ ‘Cause I’m more like the Sopranos/ I’m talkin’ Tony, Paulie, Silvio.”
This track will be included on Cam’s upcoming 1st of the Month, Volume 1, which will be the first installment of his scheduled monthly EPs.
Details about the releases are somewhat limited, but we do know that Cam has something in the can with Nicki Minaj, which he recently previewed on Instagram.
Plus, he’s got more special guests planned. “The people that’s gonna be on this project is Nicki Minaj, 2 Chainz, Wiz Khalifa, Estelle and Gunplay, so far,” he told MTV News last month.
1st of the Month, Volume 1 is set to drop July 1.
