Cam’ron will be supporting his third album, “Come Home With Me” (Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam), which debuted at No. 2 on The Billboard 200 in June. The single “Hey Ma” featuring Juelz Santana, Freekey Zekey & Toya, is No. 8 on Billboard’s Hot 100 this week. N.O.R.E.’s latest album, “God’s Favorite” (Def Jam), debuted at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 in July. The single “Nothin'” sits at No. 16 on the Hot 100 this week.
Philadelphia’s NAAM Brigade will be touring in support of its debut, “Early in the Game,” released Sept. 24 on ArtistDirect Records.
