Yeah, I’m looking forward to that DZA album, but I’d be lying if I said this wasn’t the track I was anticipating the most. Thelonious Martin on the production.

Cam’s been teasing pieces from his new Dipset USA apparel collection for a minute, but now a bunch of items are available exclusively at Karmaloop for some relatively reasonable prices. Relative to the $ 450 he’s charging for this jersey at least. Watch Cam’s announcement above and check out some of the shirts, sweaters and hats below.

Noah “40″ Shebib, the architect behind all of Drake’s albums and the OVO sound in general, recently spoke to VIBE about his work on Nothing Was The Same, his involvement with that controversial Aaliyah album, his musical influences and more.
After likening “Tuscan Leather” to one of The Heatmakerz beats from the golden era of Dipset, he mentions that he has Cam’s Ghetto Heaven in heavy rotation and comments on how Killa’s sound has influenced his career:
What are you listening to now?
Cam’ron’s mixtape [Ghetto Heaven, Vol. 1]. [Laughs] I’ve been listening to Kool G Rap and The Smiths and, like, punk. That’s where I’m at. Yo, Cam’s the best. Cam’s music is so R&B. That’s my influence. Fuck everybody. I love those R&B/rap crosses. Especially if they’re done gangster enough—it’s this juxtaposition that I’ve always loved. We don’t achieve that with Drake because he’s not gangster. But instead of being on a street rapper with an R&B sound, we push on good music.
Later, he mentions that he’d like to work with N.O.R.E., Ghostface and Raekwon at some point:
Which artists are on your personal wish list?
N.O.R.E. I want to fuck with Ghostface, Raekwon. I want to bring my sound and do what I know I can do with rap. Obviously working with Sade was a dream and I somehow achieved that

Speaking to Rob Markman for MTV, Cam speaks on Jay-Z’s mention of him on “Pound Cake” and floats a theory that his former labelmate has formally banned any Dipset music from being played in any of the 40/40 clubs.
“It’s ridiculous. I got DJs who DJ in there, who are my people and you can’t play no Diplomat music in there. Will we irk you that much,” Cam says of the supposed ban in Hov’s string of 40/40 Club. “That’s the thing that make me be like, ‘Wow.’ Because I don’t care, I like it, because if I had $ 500,000 million nothing can make me mad. But just for the simple fact that we get under your skin that much good because we’re that fly, we’re that flashy, and we just that type of people to get you upset. But I don’t have any problem with him, I think it’s cool, but c’mon.”
Zeke tells a story about a time Cam’s IBS kicked in right before a performance in Chicago and it complicated the whole night.
