Made for it.
I've been through a lot in my 27 years, good and bad. I've seen violent domestic disputes, literal paralysis, countless friends left behind and the worst heartbreak imaginable. Not really looking for sympathy, it is what it is. The end result of goin' through all that is either to break you, or make you something better.
The latter is what led me to music.
OutKast & Nas wrote the lyrics to my childhood. Coupled with 90's sitcoms and hella novels, they helped me become a writer first. From poetry, to spoken word, to a uniquely powerful version of the hip hop we all know and love, I've taken their blueprint and flipped it into something no one else can imitate. This is what I was made for. I can't build someone else's dream for the rest of my life.
Some of y'all found me as The Concept. Some of you discovered me as Cam James. No matter when you started supporting, the only thing that matters is that you're here now. Help me bring the passion back, and inspire the next generation.
