Dipset leader Cam'ron has returned to the spotlight, after months of absence, with a video for his new song "I Hate My Job."
The Harlem, New York-bred emcee's new song reflect's the nation's current economic crisis.
"Ayo I'm looking for a job/Ain't nobody hiring," Cam rapped, "Then I asked the boss/When y'all doing firing/You I'm admiring/Nice job, family man, car and looking in these Want ads tiring/Shoulda been a fireman...I put on my pants/Put on my shoes/I prayed to God/Paid all my dues/I'm tryin' to win/But it seems like I was born to lose..."

The music video is reportedly from Cam's forthcoming album Crime Pays.
"I just called to tell y'all," Cam said while phoning into Dipset radio last fall, "the album's called Crime Pays, it'll be out this November." (Dipset Radio)
However, the projected release date was pushed into 2009.
Diplomat founder Cam'ron is busy working on his next album Crime Pays, which was originally slated to drop later this year. According to longtime A&R Duke The God, Cam will now unveil his return to the rap game top of 2009. (UDub! News)
Cam will also be featured in XXL Magazine's April issue addressing his relationship with distant Dipset member Jim Jones.
"It's kinda messed up," Cam said in the interview. "But what you gotta realize is that things can always be fixed behind the scenes. But once a problem gets public, it's kind of unfixable...The two things that you could say it was is: The come to my house and try to start a fake beef between me and [Jim]...And the kinda siding with 50 [Cent] when me and him is in the dead middle of beefing or whatever."

Cam's upcoming solo project will follow-up 2006's Killa Season.
Cam directed the straight-to-DVD film Killa Season and released an album of the same name. Message boards blew up right before the album's release when his Jay-Z diss track, "You Gotta Love It," began appearing on mixtapes, and Killa Season reached number two on the album charts. Despite these achievements, the album saw disappointing sales overall, and Cam'ron announced that he had been released from Asylum in late 2007. (All Music)
Crime Pays is scheduled to drop on Tuesday, April 24.
