“My favorite album that I ever recorded, it would probably be ‘Purple Haze,’” Cam says.
Just over a decade after the fan-favorite was released, Cam’Ron has announced that a sequel to his 2004 album Purple Haze will be released before the end of the year.
Speaking with Revolt after a show in Chicago, Cam explained his plans to begin recording Purple Haze 2 in the coming months for a possible December release date.
“I’m getting ready to go on tour in March, April for the Diplomat tour,” he said. “Then in May, Cam’Ron by himself is going overseas. Then I start shooting Percentage 2 and 3 in June and July. Then the end of July the Diplomat album coming out, then I start working on Purple Haze 2 for this December. So that’s what’s going on for this year.”
Treading back to the original, Cam explained how the first Purple Haze came about.
“My favorite album that I ever recorded, it would probably be Purple Haze,” he said. “I was staying out here, I was staying in Chicago at that time. I was staying in Ohio. I was back in New York, I was all over the place so I got to see a bunch of different cultures. I always travel but I never sat down in one other state for more than two, three weeks. I was living in Chicago for three years. I was living in Ohio for five years. Just meeting different people from parts of the United States while I was doing that album was pretty dope.”
Last year, Cam’Ron announced that Purple Haze 2 will be his last album.
“Yeah, It’s a wrap, time to move on,” Cam’Ron told Miss Info. “Movies and clothing are doing really well for me right now. I’m helping Mendeecees [Yandy’s husband from Love & Hip Hop NY] with his album. And…I’m building a club in Vegas.”
