Last December, Cam’ron returned to the fold with his seventh studio album Purple Haze 2, which saw 16 new tracks from the Harlem star and additional appearances from Max B, Jim Jones, Wale, and more. Following well-received videos for “Believe In Flee,” “Losing Weight 3,” and “This Is My City,” Killa Cam returns with a clip for “Ride The Wave,” which sees him on adult time over production from Trizzy:

“She way more comfortable with the felons, stuck it in, soon after, she started yellin’/

Put my d*** between her melons, asked if we could sixty-nine, yeah, but no tellin’/

I mean, baby girl best one and a rump-shaker, I’m a special ed garbage can, I get dumb paper.../”

The accompany video comes courtesy of Rek Edits and sees Cam’ron in an all-white studio dressed to the nines, interspersed with footage of twerkers providing additional entertainment. It’s an upbeat feel that’s sure to help fans get through the current quarantine in place.

Purple Haze 2 acts as the proper sequel to 2004’s Purple Haze, an album that — along with the rest of Dipset’s massive catalog — ultimately changed the New York hip hop sound permanently. The album spawned plenty of timeless singles, including “Get ‘Em Girl,” “Hey Lady,” and the Kanye West-produced “Down & Out.”

During an interview with TIDAL’s Rap Radar podcast, Cam’ron spoke on his time at Roc-A-Fella, and — despite not being on the best terms — how he had respect for JAY-Z’s business acumen:

“No matter whether me and JAY-Z got along publicly or even in private, what I tell people is me and him may not have even been speaking, but when I had to do what I had to do, I had to get six signatures to do anything. JAY-Z signed off on anything, whether it was Diplomats or Juelz or anything that I did. So maybe we may not have been on the same page personally, but business-wise, he never held me up from doing anything.”
