Cam’ron Most Embarrassing Moment, Beyoncé Bodies Yeezus, Angel Haze’s Publicity Stunt?
Thirsty Thursday. It’s a day to quench your thirst, so why not have some chuckles with Cam’ron revealing his most embarrassing moment? Could it be more embarassing than Beyoncé’s record sales killing Kanye West‘s record sales in just 72 hours? Someone who could use a big first-week is Angel Haze, so was her album leak a publicity stunt? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Come Home With Me
Is Cam’ron the best rapper alive? That’s a discussion you’ll have to debate on later on, but he might be the best rapper at telling stores. It turns out Cam had an incident happen to him that is pretty shocking and embarrassing. Complex is on it:
In this episode of Complex Individuals Cam’ron reveals who he’d like to meet in person and what his greatest risk in life has been thus far. The latter question makes the 37-year-old rapper from Harlem laugh hysterically before he gives his answer. “Maybe riding with a gun in the car,” he says. “I got caught with that. I did my time and everything for that.” Killa Cam also shares a story he’s never talked about before which he considers “almost” his most embarrassing moment. Right out of a comedy script, the story features Cam’ron, an unknown woman, and a bed that’s been urinated in. “This was awhile ago. I took a girl home from the club the first time I ever met her. I was pissy drunk,” he says. “So we get in the bed, we do what we do. We fall asleep. I wake up. And you know how you just wake up, and I’m like, ‘I know I didn’t just pee on myself.’” Facing a dilemma, Cam went into action. “You gotta think quick in this scenario. So I run to the bathroom, I get a cup of water, and I sit down on the bed and act like the water spilt in the bed.” (Complex)
Ehh. Cam’ron might have been better off never revealing that story to the masses. We can only hope he’s lying. Is this one of the most embarrassing moments you’ve ever heard or what? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
2. Count ‘Em Up
Kanye West might want to hurry up and release another album because what Beyoncé just did with her iTunes release is pretty shocking. She sold what most artists hoped they could sell in her first day. In three days she did Kanye West’s entire LP numbers? XXL Mag is on it:
Kanye West’s Yeezus may be getting its critical due, topping many publications’ year-end lists, but sales-wise it hasn’t quite risen to the top. Yeezus sits at No. 25 on the year-end sales list.
After debuting at No. 1 after it arrived June 18 with 327,000 sold, Yeezus‘ sales were eclipsed by J. Cole’s Born Sinner in week two, falling 80 percent. To date, it has shifted 607,000 copies, according to Billboard, less than what Beyoncé’s self-titled effort sold in three days after she released it by surprise early Friday morning. Beyoncé shifted 617,000 units between Friday and Sunday, the end of SoundScan’s tracking week, enough to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. (XXL Mag)
So do the numbers lie or is Beyoncé just that good? Kanye put out a strong effort but it’s clear that Bey remains in a class all by herself. #SOHHWhatchaThink?
3. The Leak Heard Around The World
If you didn’t know who Angel Haze was earlier this week, there’s no question you should know who she is by now. The decision to leak her entire album in order to gain the attention of her record label not only worked but it helped her receive a Dec. 30 release date. But was this all planned out? AHH Rumors has a theory:
Keeping it real, I don’t know much of anything about this Angel Haze person. But, that’s the point…I kinda do now. The rapper chick from uptown tried to leak her album on SoundCloud yesterday. And before you could say “I got mine,” her label Universal snatched it off the internet. Good for them. You can’t let these sla…, I mean artists, get away with bucking the system. I mean, they took it off so fast that there’s not even a leak coming up in google. The shut down happened so swiftly, that rumors started to swirl that this was just a publicity stunt to get us talking about the December 30 release date of Dirty Gold, her debut album. HEY! Did I just fall for the okey doke? I think I did. Anyway, I’m not mad. She’s talented and deserves to be heard just like anybody else. And, Beyonce stans…everybody ain’t trying to be Beyonce! Just because somebody leaks an album, they are not trying to be like Mrs. Carter, or Female Jesus or whatever you call B, b. (AHH Rumors)
Angel said a lot of tough things and you would have to think those comments would get her dropped instead of having an album leaked. Is there any chance Angel fooled everyone or were her words legit? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
