Dipset’s Cam’ron has said that he would put off any upcoming Diplomat project in order to release his U.N. debut this summer.
According to Cam, the U.N. consists of himself and protege rapper, Vado.
“Let me break it down: We’re the U.N. That’s the name of the team,” Cam described. “The U.N. is ‘Us Now.’ We got an album coming out in August that’s gonna be stupid. Vado’s solo joint, look towards December [for that one]. But I want everybody to be focused on that U.N. album, ’cause when that comes out, it’s gonna be bananas. Stupid. This August. [‘Speakin Tongues’], this is the first single off of it.” As of now, the U.N. is officially just Killa and Vado; they have three other artists who are down with them but not signed. Cam and company have 10 videos coming to the Web in the next several days, including “Ooh Baby” “Large in the Streets” and “Stop It Five.” (MTV)
Earlier this year, Cam announced the U.N. Gunz N’ Butta compilation album.
Cam’s biggest goal is to keep Harlem in the spotlight with dignity and honor. He is featured on every song on the album and heads in a different direction with this new movement. The first single off of Gunz N’ Butta, “Clap,” finds Cam’ron back to form and will hit urban radio shortly. (Press Release)
Releasing the project under E-1 Music, Cam and record label president Alan Grunblatt previously confirmed the partnership.
“Alan Grunblatt is a true visionary in hip hop. I am thrilled to work with him again. We gonna make history. It’s all about the new movement,” Cam said in a statement. E1 Music President Alan Grunblatt says, “Cam helped take E1 (KOCH) to the next level with our Diplomats deal. Cam is a true visionary and I’m thrilled to be working with him again.” (Statement)
The U.N.’s debut was initially slated for release in late August 2009.
Cam’ron is also working on a compilation album with his new crew, U.N. (which includes Lady Byrd and Vado), that is set for a late-August release. There is also talk of an as-yet-untitled album being released in December and a potential film soundtrack that will be released that month as well. “I don’t want to clog out everything, so I might wait till I drop my own album and see,” Cam’ron says.
