With a solo project, group album, and a release from his protégé all on the way, Cam’ron is gearing up to have a busy 2012. In a video interview with Trap.TV, Cam’ron took out his smartphone to show the freshly-emailed cover art for his upcoming Boss of All Bosses Vol. 3 mixtape with Vado and DJ Drama. Then he announced that his next solo album would arrive next April.
Cam said that araabMuzik produced 10 of the 17 songs on Boss Of All Bosses 3 and that the only guest emcee on the project is Jim Jones. “I’m always open to new production cause at the end of the day it ain’t about a name, to me it’s about what’s hot,” he explained. “It ain’t about the name.” A different promotional video has state that the project will be released on Friday (December 16).
Cam’ron also confirmed that Vado has officially signed to Interscope Records, but release details for the reunion album by The Diplomats are still pending. “It’s definitely coming out, but we don’t know what label,” Cam’ron said. When asked if Interscope would be the label home, he responded, “They’re negotiating, they put some numbers up. [The other labels] are undisclosed.”
During Labor Day weekend this summer, Cam’ron dropped Boss Of All Bosses 2.8: Road to 3.0. Since then, he has leaked songs and released viral and music videos. At the end of the video clip, Cam’ron said that his next studio album should be available in April 2012.
