Cam'ron Is Working on a New Movie, Releases Ric Flair-Inspired Track 'D.I.A.'
After displaying his acting chops in movies like Paid in Full and Killa Season, Cam'ron is ready to tackle a new film.
In an interview with Noisey, Cam'ron is plotting a new movie analogous to Richard Gere's and Diane Lane's 2002 film Unfaithful. "Kinda 'once you go black you never go back' kind of thing, but it's kind of deeper than that," says Cam.
Instead of crafting a handful of videos for his forthcoming project The Program, the "Oh Boy" star has other ideas in mind. "So instead of shooting nine, ten, eleven videos, what we're doing is writing the script," he tells Noisey.
Hungry to showcase his versatility on the big screen, look for Cam'ron to step outside of his comfort zone. "The movies that I've done in the past, everybody's been like 'Cam always gets away in a movie playing Cam," he explains. "So, like, I'm trying to step outside the box a little bit just to show my range in acting."
After dishing out his Vanessa Carlton-sampling single "10,000 Miles," Cam'ron returns back to his braggadocios roots with his new track "D.I.A." Spearheaded by a classic sound bite from WWE legend Ric Flair, Cam'ron's swagger is at an all-time high: "Dapper Cam, no clothes on/Got a prodigy, stab your brain with your nosebone/Sh-t, got that line from the Infamous/Black Trump though, look at my apprentices," raps Cam over the inflated horns.
Take a listen to his new song "D.I.A." below. You can read the rest of his interview with Noisey here.
